Excess holidays can complicate problems with reflux


Problems of gastroesophageal reflux can be complicated during the holiday season due to excessive consumption of food and drink, so it is necessary to calibrate, said a specialist in Mexico City today.

"Reflux episodes are often reduced and worsened due to excessive consumption of food and drink during the holiday season, which can sometimes lead to fatal outcomes," Dr Erik Reboledo said in a statement.

A gastroenterologist said it was estimated that around half of the adult Mexican population suffers from gastroesophageal reflux, a disease that can be complicated when binge food and beverages appear.

"In emergency services, it's common to see patients who come for abuse in the evening, which causes reflux, breakthrough, gastritis and an increase in glucose levels, which leads to decompensation in humans," said a specialist hospital in the main hospital.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease, also known as GERD, is characterized by regurgitation of gastric juices from the stomach to esophagus, causing internal irritation and pulse feeling in the throat and mouth.

The specialist recalled that excess alcohol, spicy desserts and high fat foods can complicate the symptoms of the disease.

He even specified that a person can consume up to 3,000 calories per day during Christmas party, which can cause problems such as piercing, gastritis, heartburn and glucose uptake.

In the end, Reboledo said that in these Christmas holidays should be careful with foods that burn, control obesity, smoke and avoid abundant dinners to enjoy these dates and do not have to go in for emergency because of excess.
