The More You Know

What Is Acid Reflux and GERD?

Acid reflux happens when acid from your stomach flows back (reflux) into your oesophagus (food pipe). Many people have acid reflux once in a while, but in some cases, it may irritate or damage the lining of the oesophagus.

If you have symptoms of acid reflux more than twice a week, you might have a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This is a more severe and longer-lasting condition in which the symptoms faced are constant or leads to complications over time.

To add, if you suspect that you may have GERD, you should see a specialist like Dr Kan.

Potential complications of GERD

What are some potential complications of GERD?

In most cases, GERD can be treated easily, but in some, it can lead to serious or even life-threatening health problems.


tooth enamel erosion

Gum disease, or other dental problems.


breathing problems

Asthma, chronic cough or others may develop if you breath stomach acid into your lungs.



An inflammation of your oesophagus.


oesophageal stricture

This happens when your oesophagus narrows or tightens.


Barrett’s oesophagus

Involving permanent changes to the lining of your oesophagus.


oesophageal cancer

This affects a small portion of people with Barrett’s oesophagus.
