Why do People Get GERD?

I guess I know what the term means, but can someone explain why people get
bouts of GERD? Thanks.

I'm not sure why people get GERD, I guess genetics can play a part. I know that my mother had the condition and now I have it. As far as what brings on an attack, well any number of things can do this. For example certain foods that are spicy or have a high acid content such a coffee can trigger an attack. Another thing that can trigger an attack can be stress, or feeling nervous about something. Also, other health conditions can play a part in causing GERD attacks. Before I was diagnosed with have a blood pressure issue, I was having frequent GERD attacks, such as three or four a day. These are some of the things that have caused me to have a bout of GERD, and I'm sure there are others that people can share with you as well.

RE: Why do People Get GERD?

I personally have symptom for acid reflux but I know its not that worst like any other people in this forum. But as we age, I slowly realize that I am having problem with it. It makes to a point that I'm having heartburn and can breathe with it that I don't understand. I search the cause and I think its because I'm a fan of coffee. I love spicy foods. How can I avoid these foods if they are my favorites. That is why I resulted to drink plenty of water and do exercise for my heart. for now I'm trying my best to be healthy but I really think this would lead to GERD

A few causes are overeating and eating certain types of foods, especially fatty and greasy foods. Another factor could be age, and it might also be hereditary.
