What is Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (Acid Reflux)

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a digestive condition that commonly occurs in one in five people. It can affect people of all ages, including children. It is most common in adults aged 40 and over and occurs more in men than in women.

When does it occur?

Acid reflux (GORD) is caused by two contributing factors. The first is a build-up of excess acid in the stomach, and the second is the weakening of the lower sphincter muscles of the oesophagus which work to prevent the escape of stomach acid. Both these factors together result in stomach acid travelling up and into the oesophagus. The oesophagus is the tube which connects the mouth to the stomach and is where the commonly associated burning sensation with Acid reflux is experienced.

The common symptoms of GORD (Acid Reflux)

  • Heartburn – a burning pain or discomfort below the breastbone, usually worse after meals,or when bending down, or when lying down
  • An unpleasant taste in the mouth, caused by reflux of acid from the stomach
  • Pain and difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia)
