    Gerd/weight connection?

    Hello everyone, I have a question. Have any of you found that losing / gaining weight has an effect on GERD? Several years ago I lost 20 lbs and my heartburn and acid reflux just disappeared. NOW, all my weight is back, and I find myself again consuming antacids like candy .. wonder if weight loss would get rid of it? Anyone out there who knows?

    Thanks!

    Martha

    Weight loss would help you alot concerning your GERD. It is one of the top recommendations for relieving GERD. The extra weight puts alot of pressure on your stomach causing reflux. My GERD is caused by being overweight. I never had GERD until I put on a significant amount of weight.
