GERD and Obesity: What’s the Connection?

Anyone who has had a big meal late at night knows that inescapable feeling of acid reflux going up into the esophagus and making you miserable. But did you know that being obese can actually put you at risk not only for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease but also cause you to suffer more frequent and severe symptoms and put you at risk for more serious complications. And you might be very surprised at how close “clinical obesity” is to your ideal body weight. In this program we take a closer look at reflux disease and its connection to obesity and other medical conditions. Plus we discuss the latest treatments and therapies to help bring this condition under control. The important message is patients should get into to see their doctors so they can take advantage of the latest research.
