The association of gastroesophageal reflux disease with atrial fibrillation

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a very common condition, in which stomach content persistently and regularly flows up into the esophagus. It often causes unpleasant symptoms. It is apparently found in genetically predisposed individuals and it can be exacerbated by certain nutritional habits.

According to a recent study it is associated with an increased incidence of atrial fibrillation.

It is therefore important to effectively manage GERD, either with medication or modification of nutritional habits, not only to minimize the discomfort but also to reduce the incidence of arrhythmia.
