In Reflux

GORD (Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease) occurs when Reflux or GOR (Gastro-Oesophgeal Reflux) is associated with complications, such as:

  • oesophagitis (erosion of the oesophagus) which leads to a very irritable baby who may become difficult to feed because of the pain
  • excessive vomiting causing poor weight gain
  • recurrent respiratory problems such as pneumonia or apnoea

GORD is treated medically in the first instant, such as with anti-acid medications and a change in milk, but in severe cases can ultimately require surgical intervention to fix. If you suspect your baby has GORD I strongly advise that you seek immediate medical advice from a Paediatrician or Paediatric GIT (Gastro Intestinal Tract) Specialist.
