What Is Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD/ GORD)

 GORD occurs when there is an abnormal amount of stomach acid that leaks back into the oesophagus, leading to symptoms and possible damage to the lining of the oesophagus. There are different causes for GORD, but usually, there is some impairment of the functioning of the lower oesophageal sphincter (LES). This sphincter connects the oesophagus to the stomach, and contracts to prevent reflux of stomach contents into the oesophagus during and after eating.

If GORD is not treated, the damaged cells in the oesophagus can change into different cell types than normally found in the oesophagus. This condition is called Barrett’s oesophagus. If this is left untreated, it can progress to oesophageal cancer.

GORD can be diagnosed with specific tests:

If GORD is suspected, gastroscopy is usually the first investigation performed.  A flexible tube with a camera lens is “swallowed” and allows the doctor to visualise the oesophagus and stomach. Stomach ulcers can also be excluded during the same procedure. The doctor will usually take a piece of oesophageal tissue (called a biopsy) and test it to see if there are any abnormal cells (Barrett’s oesophagus) or malignant cells. The biopsy may also show some yeast like Candida Albicans or bacteria like H.Pylori present in the oesophageal tissue that will need treatment.

Monitoring of the oesophagus’ pH over twenty-four hours can also be performed to assess for abnormal spikes of acid (low pH).

Manometry measures the pressure inside the oesophagus as well as the sphincter's contraction.

Radiological procedures such as a barium swallow (swallowing of a contrast medium while taking an X-ray) can also be performed to assess sphincter functionality and exclude any narrowing or masses in the oesophagus.

White men are more at risk for oesophageal cancer than any other population group. GORD is more prevalent in patients over the age of

40 years.

What Is Ulcerative colitis

Immunity building refers to any measures taken to assist and strengthen the body’s immune system to function optimally and to help ward off disease. Proper functioning is necessary for us to maintain ideal health.

The state in which the immune system is functioning sub-optimally is called immunodeficiency. Immunodeficiency states can have serious consequences e.g. predisposing to life-threatening infective diseases or cancer. Overfunctioning of the immune system is also common. Conditions in which the immune system over functions are hypersensitivity reactions or allergies, as well as autoimmune diseases (when the immune system recognises the body's cells as "foreign" and starts to attack them).

The immune system is intricately and very detailed in its design. The system is divided into innate and adaptive immunity. Innate immunity is the body’s first defence against external factors. These include physical defence mechanisms such as skin, mucosa and cell walls, as well as scavenger immune molecules that catch foreign particles in the blood and lymphatic streams.

 It is an immediate defence mechanism and non-specific. It does not adapt over time. White blood cells called macrophages and phagocytes form part of the body’s innate system. Once the innate immune system recognises a threat to the body, these cells activate a system called the complement cascade which leads to further activation of more of the immune system's cells.

The adaptive immune system is more focused and contains antibodies that are formed after exposure to specific foreign substances called antigens. Antibodies are called immunoglobulins, and lymphocytes are the cells responsible for activation of the innate immune system.

Poor diet, fatigue, stress as well as certain substances or medications can all lead to over- or underperformance of the immune system. Organs that form part of the immune systems include your spleen, tonsils/ adenoids, lymphatic system and bone marrow.

Symptoms Treated With RIFLUX FORTE LIQUID 200ML

What Are The Symptoms Of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD/ GORD)

If you suffer from GORD, you may have some of the typical symptoms. Heartburn is the commonest complaint. You may have pain after eating or during swallowing (referred to as “dysphagia”). Sometimes it may feel as though the food “gets stuck” just to the bottom of your sternum(breastbone). You make wake up with the taste of acid in the mouth (“waterbrash”), due to stomach acid reflux while lying down.

Some people may have atypical symptoms caused by GORD. Atypical symptoms may include:

  • Chronic irritating cough
  • Hoarse voice due to acid reflux affecting the vocal chords
  • Retrosternal chest pain (pain behind the breastbone) due to spasm of the LES when swallowing food.

What Are The Symptoms Of Ulcerative colitis

The commonest symptoms of ulcerative colitis include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Abdominal pain and cramping
  • Blood or mucus in stools
  • Severe ulcerative colitis may present with associated systemic symptoms such as:
  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Anaemia

Associated autoimmune systemic manifestations may include:

  • Arthritis (seronegative)
  • Oral aphthous ulcers
  • Skin conditions such as erythema nodosum
  • Inflammatory eye conditions such as uveitis

Causes of diseases where RIFLUX FORTE LIQUID 200ML is used

What Are The Causes Of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD/ GORD)

GORD is most often caused by a lowered tone in the lower oesophageal sphincter (LES)

Factors/Causes that affect the functioning of the LES:

  • Hiatus hernias
  • Raised intra-abdominal pressure due to pregnancy, intra-abdominal masses, obesity or being overweight
  • Pregnancy: Progesterone lowers the tone of the oesophageal sphincter, as well as the combination of increased abdominal pressure

Factors that reduce the tone of the LES:

  • Progesterone
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Chocolate
  • Peppermint
  • Delayed emptying of the stomach called gastroparesis will also contribute to GORD. This may occur in patients with diabetes or other abnormalities of digestion.

Medications that can contribute to the development of GORD:

  • NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories)
  • Blood pressure treatments such as calcium channel blockers(CCB)

What Are The Causes Of Ulcerative colitis

No specific cause of ulcerative colitis has yet been identified, but numerous factors are thought to play a role:

  • Genetics- higher incidence of recurrence if a family member is affected. Higher rates of infection in identical twins. No specific genomic defect could be identified up to date
  • Diet- Diets high in pro-inflammatory foods such as saturated fatty acids, refined starches and alcohol are suggested to have some influence in predisposing to ulcerative colitis
  • Medications- Non-Steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), antibiotics and oral contraceptives may also play a contributory role.
  • Stress- Emotional and life stressors may have some effect on ulcerative colitis, although no specific studies have been definitive. Stress is considered to be a trigger of acute flare-ups in existing disease, rather than a cause.
