Before proceeding towards the treatment it is noteworthy to understand what is Hiatal Hernia and what changes do you observe in a person suffering from it.
Hiatal Hernia is a condition manifested as protrusion of the upper region of the stomach through a thin muscular structure called diaphragm( a separation between lungs and stomach). Diaphragm plays a pivotal role in preventing the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus ( food pipe). The esophagus enters through a diaphragmatic opening named esophageal hiatus.
Causes of Hiatal hernia
This painful condition can occur due to pH disparities or inflammation in the intestines. Increased pressure inside the abdomen either due to pregnancy, severe coughing, obesity or irritable bowel movements can also result in the widening of hiatus.
It develops more commonly in middle-aged women.
Signs and symptoms
Some people might be asymptomatic but others may complain of
- Heartburn, chest pain
- Nausea or vomiting
- Halitosis( bad breath)
- Eroded teeth
- Poor digestion
Different forms of Hiatal hernia
Sliding- it is the common type in which the stomach and esophagus tend to slide in and out of the chest through the hiatal hole as it is smaller in size. Usually, does not present any noticeable signs.
Fixed/ para esophageal hernia- In this, the protruded upper part of the stomach remains does not move. It pushes through the diaphragm and gets fixed there. If it worsens, it may block blood flow to the stomach, thus raising an alarm for a medical emergency.
Do not practice home remedies that include consumption of lemon, apple cider vinegar or antacids. Although aloe vera intake may improve the state to some extent.
Conventional drug treatment of Hiatal Hernia
US FDA has approved the medicinal treatment by 15 days course( maximum thrice a year) of PPI’s(proton pump inhibitor drugs) to decrease acid production in the stomach and relieve symptoms related to acid reflux. However, discontinuation of such drugs may cause relapse and overconsumption might present with certain side effects such as:
- Difficult or heavy breathing
- Swollen face, lips, or tongue
- Stomach ache, headache
- Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
Treatment with antibiotics against H. pylori has also been proved to be ineffective due to high resistance.
Surgical procedures are usually indicated in cases that develop recurrent hemorrhages, ulcers, strictures. After going through endoscopic investigations, the surgeon pulls back the stomach into its actual location in the abdomen. However, you can also opt for a less invasive or non- invasive line of treatment as mentioned below.
