What is acid reflux disease and what causes it?


If you have heartburn or regurgitation at least twice a week for multiple weeks, then your symptoms fit the typical definition of acid reflux disease. This condition is one of the most common diseases on the planet among adults. The stomach contains a strong acid, hydrochloric acid, to help with the efficient digestion of food and to protect against undesirable microbes such as bacteria.

The lining of the stomach is specially adapted to produce this acid, and also to protect the digestive organ against its own corrosive secretion, but the higher gut is not protected from this acid.
