Condition

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Description

 

Gastroesophageal reflux disease  is a chronic symptom of mucosal damage caused by stomach acid coming up from the stomach into the esophagus.
 
GERD is usually caused by changes in the barrier between the stomach and the esophagus, including abnormal relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, which normally holds the top of the stomach closed, impaired expulsion of gastric reflux from the esophagus, or a hiatal hernia. These changes may be permanent or temporary. Source: Wikipedia
