It’s that time of year again when holiday parties are occurring and food and drinks are readily available.

It’s a great time of year for getting together with family and friends and enjoying all different kinds of foods during meals and for snacks. We know we will probably eat more than normal and eat foods that will not agree with us, but it all looks so tempting. It’s hard to resist. However, that can come with a price.

Deviating from good dietary habits, making unwise food choices, and overeating can result in heartburn. This is usually more of a nuisance, but ongoing, chronic, severe heartburn (acid reflux), known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), increases risk factors, and can lead to more serious complications and possibly esophageal cancer. So that is serious. Our goal is to be aware of heartburn, how often it occurs, how severe it is, and make sure we or our patients are evaluated if it occurs frequently.
