Health Tip: Is GERD Causing Sleep Problems?

(HealthDay News) - Gastroesophageal reflux reflux disease (GERD) can cause symptoms during the night that can prevent a good night's sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation offers these suggestions to keep GERD symptoms calm at night:
  • Be careful of the foods you eat from late afternoon until bedtime. Try to avoid spicy foods, onions and chocolate.
  • Eat a larger meal at lunch, and have a small, light dinner.
  • Don't eat anything after two or three hours before you plan to go to bed.
  • Don't drink alcohol or smoke before bed.
  • Sleep on a pillow or two, with your head and shoulders elevated.
  • Try sleeping on your left side.
