Medical science has developed enough to find the underlying causes and provide treatments for various diseases. But still, there are many issues that need to be resolved. There are many more medical conditions and symptoms which need to be addressed. One such grey area is the connection between heartburn and acid reflux and damage caused to the oesophagus. The reason for heartburn in patients suffering from acid reflux is not yet known. We still do not understand the correlation between the acidity of the stomach and heartburn.
Why some people suffer from heartburn though they do not have acid reflux or damage to the oesophagus is still a mystery. With the advancement in medical science, scientists and doctors are now conducting researches in various areas and working to find effective medicines for acid reflux condition so as provide immediate relief and make life easier for such patients. With such researches being conducted, the patients can surely expect good news soon.
Very little is yet known about non-acidic reflux, its occurrence and the damage it may cause to the oesophageal lining and the oesophagus. Reflux usually contains strong enzymes and substances like bile juice which are harmful. But not much is known about the causes and the extent to which it may damage the gastrointestinal tract. Finding out some new procedure that can measure the damage caused by non-acidic reflux and identify the reflux occurrence would be of great help to both the patients as well as the diagnosticians. This would help to understand the condition of non-acid reflux and its causes and would also aid in finding out the treatment and cure for such a condition.
There have been great advancements in surgery as well as the surgical techniques adopted due to which acid reflux surgery will be more effective in the near future. This could lead to long-lasting relief and calming effects. Hopefully, a permanent cure for acid reflux will be discovered one day so that acid reflux patients would no more be life-long sufferers. But that day is still to come.
The symptoms and complications associated with acid reflux and non-acid reflux are numerous and understanding them is of great importance to the medical field. There are many studies conducted to find the effects on different patients and to find a cure that can reduce the discomfort and pain and possibly provide long-lasting relief. Very soon the mystery behind such a condition may be clearer and more effective treatment can be found.
