Noninvasive GERD Treatments

Less severe GERD cases may be managed through lifestyle changes or medication. Examples include:

  • Diet
  • Weight loss
  • No late night eating
  • Sleeping position
  • Medication 
    • Antacids (neutralize or buffer stomach acid)
    • H2 blockers (ranitidine, cimetidine) (block the body's signal to the stomach to produce acid)
    • Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) (block the secretion of acid into the stomach)
