Antibiotics During Infancy May Up Childhood Obesity Risk

THURSDAY, Nov. 1, 2018 -- Babies who are prescribed antibiotics before they're 2 years old may be more likely to become obese children, new research suggests. Acid reflux medications may also up the risk, though that connection was not as...

I would like to congratulate the authors on a very well written and well-designed study.i I believe the question that is being asked and subsequently answered in this paper is of paramount importance. Over the last several years there has been a paucity of data that is contradictory in the area of reflux after sleeve gastrectomy. However, in the most recent literature it would appear that the incidence of gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) is significant. A recent meta-analysis just released and ahead of print in the Annals of Surgery by Yeung et al, identified 46 studies with 10,000 plus patients and found an increase in post...

AbstractIn the West, the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma, which is a long-term complication of damage by gastroesophageal reflux, has been rising over recent decades. Two main factors are likely to account for this increase. The first is the rising incidence of central obesity which promotes gastroesophageal reflux. The second is the falling incidence ofH. pylori infection and associated atrophic gastritis which reduces the acidity and peptic activity of gastric juice, the main factors damaging to the esophageal mucosa. The rise in esophageal adenocarcinoma has been mirrored by a fall in gastric cancer consistent wi...

(Wiley) Individuals who are obese often experience heartburn and other symptoms of acid reflux. Previous research indicates that gastric bypass surgery for obesity helps alleviate symptoms in the short term, but a new Alimentary Pharmacology&Therapeutics study finds that these benefits often are not long-lasting.

This study was conducted on a health cohort consisting of 10,158 participants who underwent comprehensive health screening. Lifestyles and gastrointestinal symptoms were investigated using a self-reported structured questionnaire. Questionnaires about menstrual status were added for the women. RESULTS: The prevalence of RE in men was significantly higher than that in women (10.6% vs. 2.0%, P

Introduction: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is one of the surgical procedures indicated in the treatment of obesity. The occurrence of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) in the postoperative period of this surgery is related to a reduction in the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) tone and the presence of gastric residual fundus (RF) associated with increased gastric intraluminal pressure. Fixation of the remaining gastric reservoir to the gastrosplenic and gastrocolic ligaments (omentopexy) has emerged as a technical option to avoid or decrease GER in the postoperative period of LSG. Objective: To evaluate the prese...

Obesity is a risk factor for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Studies have demonstrated an improvement in GERD symptoms with weight loss. The intra-gastric balloon (IGB) is approved for weight loss in patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30-40 kg/m2. GERD can occur after Intra-gastric balloon (IGB) placement. Even though patients complain of worsening GERD symptoms and esophagitis has been documented after IGB insertion, its effect on the demeester score, upper and lower esophageal sphincter pressure is unknown.

Endoscopic screening for Barrett esophagus (BE) is currently recommended for men with chronic (>5 years) and/or frequent (weekly or more) symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) with two or more additional risk factors (age>50, Caucasian, central obesity, smoking, confirmed family history). We hypothesized that individuals with EAC (cases) would be more likely to have frequent symptoms during early to mid-adulthood (age 18 to 50) compared to population controls. Our study aimed to determine whether cases were more likely to experience GERD symptoms through age 50 than individuals without EAC (population controls) ...
