Acid Reflux (GERD) Statistics and Facts Prevalence and Occurrence Sixty percent of the adult population will experience some type of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) within a 12 month period and 20 to 30 percent will have weekly symptoms. Approximately seven million people in the United States have some symptoms of GERD. In 2004, approximately 20 percent of the United States population reported reflux symptoms that occurred at least weekly. Yearly izations with obesity diagnoses increased in the United States by 112 percent between 1996 and 2004. Obesity is linked to the development of GERD and frequency of symptoms.
Primary or secondary GERD diagnosis increased by an unprecedented 216 percent or from a total of 995, 402 individuals diagnosed in 1998 to 3,141,965 in 2005. Children with GERD symptoms who were ized with a primary GERD diagnosis increased by 42 percent in infants and 84 percent in children between the ages of two and 17. In 2005, 9.1 percent of izations for GERD also included health concerns such as weight loss, vomiting, and anemia. These symptoms can signal GERD and other esophageal disorders. 4.2 percent of all people ized with GERD in 2005 also had an esophageal disorder. From 1998 to 2005, other esophageal disorders also had a higher rate of diagnosis of GERD with dysphagia (264 percent),.
Esophageal adenocarcinoma (195 percent) and esophagitis (94 percent). In the United States, 1,150 deaths in 2004 were directly related to a primary diagnosis of GERD. Individuals that report weekly reflux symptoms have been affected by the symptoms for more than five years. In a 2000 mail survey, 130, 000 individuals reported that they had signs of reflux disease and heartburn. Of these, 95 percent reported symptoms occurring for more than one year and half reported symptoms that had occurred for more than five years. Of these, 75 percent reported that the symptoms occurred at least twice a week. Fifty percent of all people questioned regarding GERD symptoms report that they have more heartburn at night than in the day. Sixtythree percent reported difficulty sleeping and 40 percent reported that daily functioning was compromised the next day.
Approximately one percent of all people in the United States with a diagnosis of GERD also have a condition known as Barrett’s esophagus. This is more commonly seen in men, particularly Caucasian men, and rarely occurs in children. There are no specific symptoms associated with Barrett’s esophagus, and usually the diagnosis of GERD also finds the changes in the esophagus that are consistent with this condition. The average age of diagnosis for Barrett’s esophagus is 50, which is consistent with the timing of the diagnosis of GERD for many adults.

Between 1998 and 2005, the elderly accounted for 30 percent of izations with primary GERD diagnoses and 50 percent of all diagnoses of GERD without ization. GERD is most often diagnosed in individuals over the age of 40, with approximately 50 percent of all individuals diagnosed with GERD between the ages of 45 and 64. Women are more likely to be ized for GERD symptoms than men. Women accounted for 62 percent of all.

Why Do I Get Nauseous When I Ovulate
Why do I get nauseous when I ovulate? Because you are worried sick you might get pregnant? I would like to be pregnant at some point. You may be nauseous now because you got pregnant the last time you ovulated, and the hormone levels are now peaking and making you have morning sickness. I have nausea every month around the middle of my cycle, and I’m regularly having my menstrual cycle. If you had polycystic ovaries, it could cause extra hormone production when you ovulated,.
Plus extra pressure on the abdomen when they swell due to the hormones. If I had ovarian cysts so bad it made me nauseous, that’s dangerous. The nausea could be due to the high hormones, which can peak when you’re ovulating. That’s why the cervical mucus shifts to clear and watery when you are ovulating. So you think this is all hormones. Yes, especially if all the hormones are about as high as when you’re actually pregnant. Being as sick as morning sickness though, is rare. Not everyone has morning sickness either.
One difference between nausea when ovulating and morning sickness is that it is minor nausea, rarely full vomiting. Another is that the food aversions associated with pregnancy do not kick in. The other difference is that the pregnancy test would not be positive while the ovulation test would. A lot of women suffer from bloating and water weight gain when ovulating. If your salt balance gets really out of whack, you can have nausea and fatigue. That’s at least fixed by drinking a lot of water in place of soda or energy drinks.
And taking a nap. A lot of bloating could put pressure on your stomach, making you more sensitive to stomach acid building up. That’s why pregnant women are prone to indigestion; the baby puts pressure on the stomach, so it is easier for stomach acid to get pushed back up the throat. You could try cutting back on beans and soda, things that boost the gas production that bloating will make more uncomfortable and can combine to make you want to throw up due to all the pressure.
No one ever told me the hormones of ovulation could make me feel like the worst of PMS and pregnancy, without even the cute little baby at the end. If the hormones are that bad, your solutions are birth control to stop it, or pregnancy to put it on hold.
