Gerd Infant%0A

Gerd Infant%0A is a very common disease in Italy, where a third of people who suffer at least once a month. The pathology gives as an evident symptom an intense heartburn that can be in the central area of the chest, or in the lower area of the abdomen.

Sometimes, the burning sensation can also be associated with the sensation of regurgitation of acid substance, which rises from the stomach to the esophagus. In addition to acidity, digestion can be perceived as a tiring and very slow process. These symptoms occur with greater intensity after meals and when the person is lying on his back.


Gerd Infant%0A consists of the return of gastric contents through the anatomical region that separates it from the esophagus. This phenomenon can be asymptomatic, when kept under control by basic physiological mechanisms, such as peristalsis or salivary flow; we speak, instead, of pathological condition, commonly indicated with the acronym GGE (gastroesophageal reflux disease), when there are symptoms of significant intensity, associated or not with signs of damage to esophageal level, found with diagnostic practices.

SYMPTOMS OF Gerd Infant%0A

Gerd Infant%0A,The physiology of the stomach is based on hydrochloric acid, an essential substance to sterilize food and prepare it for absorption, but corrosive and capable of eroding the mucosa, with effects such as:

  • gastritis (characterized by heartburn) or burning behind the sternum (called pyrosis),
  • nausea, vomiting


The data present in the literature estimate that, to date, more than 5 million Italians are suffering from gastroesophageal reflux, with equal distribution between the age groups and the sexes.


In newborns and children, the distinction between physiological and pathophysiological conditions is even more difficult, both because of the great heterogeneity of symptoms and because of the lack of easy-to-use diagnostic tests.


The incidence of reflux in adults is variable and presents a peak between 35 and 45 years. It should not be underestimated that, due to the variety of clinical pictures, an underestimated view of the true incidence of the disease can be had.


Gerd Infant%0A is a pathology attributable to several factors, which are often difficult to identify.The causes of reflux can be multiple, such as the malfunctioning of the valve that separates the stomach and esophagus (cardias) or the presence of a hiatal hernia.Physio-pathological factors also play an important role, in fact, an increase in intra-abdominal pressure, characteristic of obese people, but also of pregnant women, predisposes more to the risk of gastro-esophageal reflux.The diagnostic possibilities are different: from the classic endoscopy, to other more advanced tests, which allow the doctor to better control the conditions and movements of the patient's esophagus.


The symptoms of Gerd Infant%0A may be exacerbated during the night. This is because the supine position favors the retro-diffusion of gastric juices towards the esophagus. Therefore, a valid aid is the lifting of the head of the patient's bed by a few centimeters.


Although a correlation between stress and the onset of gastro-esophageal reflux is not entirely evident, a possible hypothesis of interdependence between these two conditions is conceivable. Stress favors the mechanisms of gastric hypersecretion, which contribute to the onset of symptoms.


Alongside pharmacological remedies, focused on antacid and antisecretory therapies, a series of tricks and remedies are important to keep reflux symptoms under control.


The main trick is based on the control of body weight, even before any therapeutic approach. Therefore, maintain a correct lifestyle, practicing physical activity and not exceeding the quantity of meals. It is essential not to go to bed immediately after eating and keep the head of the bed raised a few centimeters.

Foods to avoid

It may be advisable to avoid or, at least, not exceed in the intake of foods that affect the acid secretion of the stomach (alcohol, coffee, etc..).


To protect the stomach from hydrochloric acid, our body uses a protective layer on the mucosa of the stomach and duodenum on one side and a system called "acid stat" on the other that controls acidity levels by keeping them within safety limits. Once the protective action is exhausted, the mantle disintegrates, feeding the underlying tissues and the entire organism.

The problem of Gerd Infant%0A, up to now has been addressed at the pharmacological level with the administration of antacids, antisecretory agents and autoprojectors. All effective treatments, but potentially associated with side effects that can limit the benefits.

The hydrolyzed collagen helps to maintain the pH of the stomach to the natural values and, when combined with the tribasic calcium phosphate, is able to create a protective mantle inside the stomach which not only warns of gastric acidity peaks , but manages to neutralize them promptly , before they have harmful effects.


Surely the prevention and treatment of Gerd Infant%0A are favored by a healthy lifestyle. A proper diet can in fact reduce the symptomatology very much. Here are some tips:

  • avoid ingesting excessive portions of food and overloading the stomach: the right amount of food is better for many times a day, rather than too much food in the normal three meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner);
  • chew slowly, taking the right time to ingest the food;
  • chewing gum: salivation and swallowing frequency increase;
  • do not make significant physical efforts on a full stomach;
  • do not go to sleep immediately after eating.
