Suitable Lifestyle for People with Barrett Esophagus

Barrett esophagus is a rare disease that is characterized by the loss of normal function of the lower esophageal sphincter (diaphragm), causing gastric contents to reflux back into the esophagus, causing symptoms such as heartburn and sore throat.

2. Avoid overexertion: Patients with Barrett esophagus are prone to weakened gastrointestinal motility, leading to esophageal spasm and other problems, so they should avoid overexertion, mental stress and other stimuli.

3. Quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption: Tobacco and alcohol may irritate the esophagus, causing esophageal spasm and pain, so it is recommended to quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption.

4. Avoid inducing vomiting: Patients with Barrett esophagus are prone to esophageal spasm, and inducing vomiting may aggravate symptoms, so use should be avoided.

5. Keep your mood comfortable: Excessive anxiety and depression may aggravate symptoms, so it is recommended to keep your mood comfortable and avoid excessive mental stress.

6. Regular check-ups: Patients with Barrett esophagus are prone to other diseases, such as gastritis, gastric ulcer, etc. Therefore, it is recommended to check regularly to detect problems in time and take corresponding measures.
