Hyperacidity

Is “hyperacidity” a medical term.?

i mean, is it used in diagnosing a patient.?

do doctors use the term hyperacidity.?

ANSWER :

I don’t think so. My mind first went to “hyper-acidity” of the stomach. Gastric acid is hydrochloric acid & when there’s an excess, I believe it’s called hyperchlorhydria (not absolutely sure on that). Acidosis refers to increased acidity in the blood.

What’s the cure for hyper acidity?

ANSWER :

When the stomach contains more hydrochloric acid than normal the condition is called hyperacidity. This excessive secretion may lead to ulcer in the stomach. Heartburn is caused when the gastric acid refluxes back to esophagus. Hyperacidity promotes heartburn, ulcers and reflux. There may be burning sensation or pain in the stomach after one to four hours of a meal. You may feel hungry frequently, usually after one or two hours of a meal. Heartburn may be experienced when you lie down. Belching, nausea, bitter taste in mouth, vomiting and loss of appetite are some other symptoms of hyperacidity.

Stomach ulcers?

ANSWER :

Hi Casey K, signs of a stomach ulcer can include nausea, loss of appetite, abdominal pain just beneath the ribcage, indigestion, vomiting, symptoms of anemia, weight loss, and blood present in vomit or bowel movements.

If you experience these symptoms for any length of time, it is important to seek medical attention. These are not symptoms to be ignored.

Stomach ulcers occur when there is a break in the tissue lining of the stomach. These ulcers normally occur in the stomach or the first part of the small intestine that leads out of the stomach, called the duodenum.

Treatment options for stomach ulcers can consist of over the counter medications, prescription medications, modifying your diet, perhaps a lifestyle change that includes the addition of exercise and reduction of stress, and as a last result, surgery.
