Diet for patients with reflux disease

At the Derm-Al Centre, the patient may consult the clinical dietitian on a diet that will help reduce the symptoms of reflux disease.

Reflux disease is a very common ailment and the right diet is crucial in its treatment. Reflux may be treated with medications, but for best effects, it is important that pharmacological treatment is accompanied by a change in eating habits and lifestyle. Thus, it is a good idea to consult both the physician and the dietitian. The dietitian will help eliminate foods that intensify the symptoms of reflux and, if necessary, reduce body weight, in order for patients with the reflux disease to feel better.
