Abstract

Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a chronic condition affecting 44% of the American population at least once a month, with daily occurrences affecting about 7% of the population. It is the most common gastrointestinal-related diagnosis given by physicians during clinic visits in the United States. Treatment of this disease is a step-wise approach that includes diet and lifestyle interventions as well as medications titrated based on symptom severity. This article reviews dietary and lifestyle factors that contribute to the physiology and symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease and modification of these factors as an adjunctive therapy.
