GERD stands for Gastroesophageal reflux disease, which is an acid reflux condition where the stomach acid of an individual refluxes into the oesophagus. This spill can cause damage to the lining of the oesophagus, which could further lead to a host of
health complications if not treated, such as throat cancer. This is why it is so important to spread awareness about this disease, for which GERD Awareness Week takes place every week between the 17 th and 23th of November. Heartburns are quite common among people suffering from GERD, which often lasts for a couple of hours. It is a burning sensation that people feel in their lower chest area, especially after having a spicy meal. But when an individual faces an acid reflux more than 2 times a week, they might be suffering from GERD.

Most common symptoms of GERD include:
- Dry cough
- Burning sensation while burping
- Bad breath
- Feeling of getting choked
- Having trouble swallowing
- Irritation in the throat
- Getting a sour taste of acid while lying down
- Sore throat

Effective ways to prevent GERD:
Maintain a low-carb diet

Some carbs remain undigested which causes bacterial overgrowth. This could lead to an increase in the pressure of the abdomen resulting in an acid reflux. This is why it is advised to stick to a low-carb diet.

Keep a check on the medications you are taking
Certain medications have been known to increase the risk of GERD. These include sedatives, iron tablets, calcium channel blockers, anticholinergics, potassium, bisphosphonates, and certain medicines for asthma.

Reduce your intake of carbonated drinks
Carbonated drinks are a known cause of an increase in acid reflux. This is why it is considered best to avoid such drinks, especially for those who are suffering from GERD.

The goal of GERD Awareness Week is to educate everyone about the dangers of GERD and its link to throat cancer. If anyone seems to be experiencing frequent GERD symptoms, it is very important to seek immediate medical assistance and do
not delay getting treatment.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.

Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose
