WEIGHT LOSS & WEIGHT GAIN

Weight gain and weight loss management, which in other words mean weight management is a long-term approach towards leading a disease-free healthy lifestyle. Studies have revealed that weight gain leads to several disease conditions that include GERD (Gastro esophageal Reflux Disease). Apart from causing burning sensations around your chest and upper gastronomical tract, GERD may also give rise to:

  • Irritating coughs
  • Excessive belching
  • Swallowing problem
  • Wheezing
  • Severe damage to the inner lining of your esophagus

Acid reflux isn’t uncommon in the US, as also obesity. In fact, more than 15 million people in the United States experience daily heartburn symptoms, while the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy identifies obesity as the ‘leading cause of frequent heartburn’. Excessive weight (in obese people) increases abdominal pressure, creating acid leakage and backflow on regular basis.

Diagnosing Acid Reflex through Endoscopy (EGD)

During an endoscopy, the gastroenterologist will insert a flexible tube with light and camera attached to it (Endoscope) through the mouth into the esophagus (Food tube). This will enable him to view the lining of the esophagus and the stomach on a color TV monitor. Prior to the insertion of the endoscope, he may administer a mild sedative to help you overcome any fear or anxiety in regard to the diagnostic procedure.

However, the test usually lasts around 20 minutes, while it is neither painful nor can create any problem for you, even though you may have a sore throat for a couple of days. In any case, the gastroenterologist will take care of your problems and advise you ways to avoid future recurrence of the disease condition.

Prevention is better than cure

Instead of heading for treatment of your GERD, it might be a far better idea to prevent its occurrence. It can, nevertheless, be achieved through regular weight management; in other words by losing weight.

Here are some tips to do that…

  • Reduce your daily calorie intake
  • Avoid food high in fat
  • Avoid taking packaged food
  • Eat smaller meals
  • Do not eat less than 2 hours before going to bed
  • Don’t hurry through meals
  • Consult a dietitian for preparing a diet chart for you
  • Learn how to control satiety

Conclusion – losing weight will save you from many maladies, some of which are considered critical. So try and use it as a form of daily routine.
