BOSTON (CBS) — Daily aspirin is recommended for millions of Americans to treat or prevent heart disease, but a new study finds that millions more take it without their doctor’s advice. Aspirin can cause serious bleeding and routine use is not recommended in people over 70 and people with a history of stomach ulcers or GI bleeding. But in this study, researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School found that about 6-million Americans over 40 are taking a daily aspirin without a physician’s advice. Almost half of adults 70 and older without known heart disease are taking a d...

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a common disorder with an increasing prevalence in th UK. The presence of a hiatus hernia is the strongest risk factor for developing GORD, although not essential. The most common symptoms experienced by patients with GORD are heartburn and acid regurgitation. Diagnosis of GORD is usually made from the clinical history. Endoscopy and ambulatory pH monitoring are adjunctive tests that can influence management decisions. The main goals of treatment are symptom control and the prevention of complications such as Barrett's oesophagus and peptic stricture.

Abstract Dysphagia is a common symptom that is important to recognise and appropriately manage, given that causes include life threatening oesophageal neoplasia, oropharyngeal dysfunction, the risk of aspiration, as well as chronic disabling gastroesophageal reflux (GORD). The predominant causes of dysphagia varies between cohorts depending on the interplay between genetic predisposition and environmental risk factors, and is changing with time. Currently in white Caucasian societies adopting a western lifestyle, obesity is common and thus associated gastroesophageal reflux disease is increasingly diagnosed. Simil...

In 1982, two Australian scientists discovered that a certain bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, was a common cause of persistent stomach inflammation and stomach ulcers. This realization revolutionized ulcer treatment. While fairly common, this infection usually causes no symptoms, but it can sometimes lead to ulcers in the stomach or the very first part of the small intestine (duodenum), and to certain types of stomach cancer. There is also evidence linking H. pylori infection to other conditions like iron-deficiency anemia and vitamin B12 deficiency. The bacteria are thought to spread through contaminated water, vomit, or f...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has become the most commonly seen gastrointestinal disorder in outpatient clinics. In the United States, around 20% of the general population experience heartburn on a weekly basis. Although clinical complaints can be mild or moderate, patients with GERD may develop further complications, such as peptic strictures, Barrett's esophagus (BE), and even esophageal adenocarcinoma. Pathologically, GERD is developed as a result of chronic and enhanced exposure of the esophageal epithelium to noxious gastric refluxate. In this review article, we provide an overview of GERD and then focus on t...

A new study has shed light on one of the long-term effects of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). These drugs are commonly used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), heartburn, and peptic ulcers. PPIs (omeprazole, lansoprazole, esomeprazole, pantoprazole, and others) help reduce the amount of stomach acid made by glands in the lining of the stomach. Research published online on February 15 in JAMA Neurology showed that there may be an association between chronic use of PPIs and an increased risk of dementia. Experts compared prescription PPI intake and diagnosis of dementia among approximately 74,000 adults ages 75 a...
