As we approach the holiday season, it is often a time for overindulging and overeating. Dr. Benjamin Sadowitz spoke on the Consumer Update on ABC Action News about a variety of digestive disorders, and spoke in detail about gallbladder disease and gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn).
Dr. Sadowitz spoke about what signs are important to look for including a burning sensation in your chest, a persistent dry cough, regurgitation of a sour liquid and other symptoms. Some things that he recommends avoiding to help alleviate acid reflux include fried foods, spicy food, caffeine, alcohol and smoking habits. He also talks about when the time is to see the doctor when dealing with acid reflux. To watch the entire interview with Dr. Sadowitz, click here.
