thank you for query.
In Barrett's esophagus
, normal tissue lining the esophagus -- the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach -- changes to tissue that resembles the lining of the intestine.
One of the primary goals of treatment is to prevent or slow the development of Barrett's esophagus by treating and controlling acid reflux
. This is done with lifestyle changes and medication.
Lifestyle changes include taking steps such as
1.Make changes in your diet. Fatty foods, chocolate, caffeine, spicy foods, and peppermint can aggravate reflux.
2.Avoid alcohol, caffeinated drinks, and tobacco.
3.Lose weight. Being overweight
increases your risk for reflux.
4.Sleep with the head of the bed elevated. Sleeping with your head raised may help prevent the acid in your stomach from flowing up into the esophagus.
5.Don't lie down for 3 hours after eating.
6.Take all medicines with plenty of water.
some drugs that can be used-
inhibitors that reduce the production of stomach acid
2.Antacids to neutralize stomach acid
3.H2 blockers that lessen the release of stomach acid
4.Promotility agents -- drugs that speed up the movement of food from the stomach to the intestines
