Factors and Foods That Contribute to GERD

Factors that contribute to GERD include hiatal hernia, obesity, pregnancy, and smoking.

Eat small, frequent meals and avoid the common foods that can worsen reflux symptoms include citrus fruits, chocolate, drinks with caffeine or alcohol, fatty and fried foods, garlic and onions, mint flavorings, spicy foods, tomato-based foods, like spaghetti sauce, salsa, chili, and pizza. Avoiding food 2 to 3 hours before bed may also help.
