Suffering from Gastro-oesophagal reflux disease. Any specialist or specialised clinic or hospitals in chennai? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Dr.Good evening..This is XXXXXXX from XXXXXXX Chennai.My sister is suffering from Gastro-oesophagal reflux disease.May i know any specialist or specialised clinic or hospitals in chennai for this.?
Good Evenning Dr...
You can visit any of the reputed hospitals like Apollo
She may be asked to undergo a procedure called endoscopy
She is 37 now and married...she has this problem some 2 years before and later on it was subsided automatically..she suffered for 2 years...consulted many doctors in lots of hospitals...after 2years of interval..she is again experiencing this for the past two months...
which will tell us more about her condition.
GERD is a chronic condition which is related to individuals lifestyle.
She had been to Apollo, XXXXXXX hospitals etc....wanted to check whether any other specialist\specialised clinic on this is available in chennai or around..?
Increased stress, reduced sleep, irregular diet, too much coffee/tea, increased weight and so on will increase incidence of GERD
Change in lifestyle, good sleep and regular diet will keep GERD symptoms away.
Yes...recently...her father-in-law expired 2months before and because of this, there was lack of sleep, etc..she faced...may be that may be the reason for re-occurence..
If she has not undergone endoscopy in the past,
getting it done will be useful
It will tell us the extent of the problem.
That would have been the reason for recurrence.
she has undergone endoscopy in the past and also recently also she undergone and was given with some medications..
At this point, I would like to remind you that,
the condition can only prevented,
if all those lifestyle and diet factors I mentioned earlier
are well maintained.
I mean, even if you see the most experienced doctor too,
the medical drugs given to her
will only keep the symptoms away for that particular period alone.
Re-evaluation is only to check if there are any worsening of symptoms.
And not improvement of treatment.
She will need to follow a diet at regular intervals,
keep her weight in ideal limits,
exercise for a 15-20 mins every day for 5 days a week.
Avoid high spicy diet
Reduce coffee/tea, chocolate intake.
Only these measures will prevent her symptoms from occuring.
Have you followed?
True....Sure Dr...Thank you very much for your detailed reply on this.I think changing the lifestyle & diet itself will solve our major healthproblems and keep us healthy....!
That's the most effective method to treat GERD.
