    What is GORD?

    Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (otherwise known as GORD) is a condition consisting of recurring episodes of heartburn and acid reflux. Heartburn is an uncomfortable burning sensation in your chest, usually after you’ve eaten. Acid reflux is a burning in your throat caused by stomach acid.

    Who gets GORD?

    Almost everyone will experience heartburn and acid reflux in their lives. But there are some factors that can make people more likely to develop GORD. These include:

    • being overweight or obese
    • eating a large amount of fatty foods: this causes excess acid to linger in the stomach
    • smoking, drinking alcohol, drinking coffee and eating chocolate
    • pregnancy
      certain conditions like gastroparesis and hiatus hernia
    • certain medicines like calcium-channel blockers, nitrates and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen
    • excess stress

    How common is GORD?

    GORD is quite common. A study by the US National Library of Medicine found that up to 20% of the entire Western population have it . If you have GORD, the bright side is that there’s a range of treatments and lots of people in the same boat as you.

    How we source info.

    When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

    What causes GORD?

    GORD is usually caused by the ring of muscle at the bottom of the oesophagus (known as the lower oesophageal sphincter) becoming weaker. The oesophagus connects your mouth to your stomach, and this ring of muscle opens and closes to let food in.

    If the muscle becomes weaker, it can’t always close as it’s supposed to, and it isn’t able to stop your stomach acid from leaking up your throat. This causes the symptoms of GORD, like heartburn and acid reflux.

    What are the symptoms of GORD?

    The main symptoms of GORD are heartburn and acid reflux. These cause burning in the chest and throat, often after eating. Sometimes acid reflux comes with a sour taste in the mouth.

    There are other symptoms which may appear. These can include oesophagitis, meaning a sore and swollen oesophagus. GORD can also appear with:

    • bad breath
    • bloating and belching
    • nausea
    • pain when swallowing
    • hiccups
    • coughing
    • bloating

    Can GORD lead to other problems?

    Usually, GORD causes mild but uncomfortable symptoms. But if GORD is quite severe and untreated for a long period of time, it can cause some complications. These include:

    Oesophageal ulcers
    Stomach acid in the throat can eventually begin to damage the lining of the oesophagus, leading to ulcers. Ulcers may bleed, cause pain and make it hard to swallow. A lot of medication used to treat GORD can also treat or reduce the risk of ulcers.

    Scarred and narrow oesophagus
    Sometimes damage caused by stomach acid causes scarring and narrowing of the throat. This is also known as oesophageal stricture and can make it incredibly difficult and painful to swallow. There is a procedure that widens the oesophagus, often by using a small balloon.

    Barrett’s oesophagus
    Repeated episodes of GORD can sometimes lead to a change in cells that line the lower oesophagus. This is known as Barrett’s oesophagus. About 6% of people with chronic GORD end up developing Barrett’s oesophagus.

    There usually aren’t any noticeable symptoms with Barrett’s oesophagus. Very rarely, it can be associated with oesophageal cancer. A clinician may suggest having an endoscopy every few years to keep an eye on this.

    Oesophageal cancer
    It’s very rare to develop oesophageal cancer even if you have Barrett’s oesophagus. But having Barrett’s oesophagus does make you ten times more likely to develop oesophageal cancer.

    If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you should speak to a clinician. The best thing you can do for your health is to treat your GORD early.

    What medications are there for GORD?

    There are lots of different medications to treat GORD. They come in different forms, like tablets, granules and syrups. Usually, they work by reducing the amount of acid in your stomach. This lessens the symptoms of GORD and protects your throat from damage.

    Is there a ‘best’ treatment for GORD?

    There isn’t a ‘best’ treatment as such for GORD. It depends on your symptoms and preferences for medication. If you struggle with taking tablets then treatment in the form of granules or syrup may be better options for you. If you have worse symptoms, you may need to take more medication, or combine it with lifestyle changes. It just varies from person to person.

    Does GORD always need treatment?

    GORD doesn’t always require medication. Symptoms caused by GORD can often be reduced with healthy lifestyle changes and avoiding triggers. These might include:

    • losing weight if you’re overweight or obese
    • eating fewer high-fat or acidic foods
    • quitting smoking if you smoke
    • cutting down on alcohol and coffee
    • cutting out certain medications, such as NSAIDs. Speak to a clinician if you think a medication you take is causing GORD and ask if there are any alternatives

    FAQ: GORD

    Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

    How is GORD diagnosed?

    Answer:
    Diagnosing GORD is usually a process of elimination. A clinician will talk to you about your symptoms and rule out other causes before diagnosing you with GORD.

    Are there tests for GORD?

    Answer:
    There aren’t any tests for GORD as such. If your symptoms are severe, a clinician might refer you for an endoscopy to rule out any other causes. A clinician may also test for H. pylori, which is a type of bacteria that could be causing your symptoms.

    Can you get side effects from GORD treatment?

    Answer:
    GORD medication can sometimes cause mild side effects, most commonly headaches. If you’re experiencing side effects and they’re causing you discomfort, our clinician can recommend alternative treatments for you.

    Does GORD treatment always work?

    Answer:
    Treatments for GORD are considered effective, and there are quite a few treatment options available for the condition. But if you want to make your treatment as effective as possible, combining it with a healthy lifestyle should increase positive results.
