Heartburn

 

Description of News Story Image


A feeling of discomfort or burning rising up from the lower chest to the neck.

 

Heartburn is caused by the contents of the stomach coming back up into the oesophagus where it can cause a burning sensation in the chest or throat.

 

Persistent reflux that occurs more than twice a week is considered to be gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), and it can eventually lead to more serious health problems. People of all ages can have GORD.

 

In this week’s informative Health Column we look at heartburn. What is it? How is it caused? How can you prevent it? Who can get heartburn? How do you treat it and seeking help from your local pharmacist for the best advice about heartburn.

 

At Davey Street Discount Pharmacy we strive to be your first choice for advice in our community. If you have any questions, please call in and speak to Rich or Sam @ 179 Davey Street Hobart.
