Dining Earlier May Beat Heartburn

Friday, 28 April 2006 12:00 AM

Easing heartburn may be as easy as eating dinner earlier or going to bed later, according to new Japanese research from Osaka City University.

Dr. Yashuhiro Fujiwara and his colleagues questioned 147 acid reflux patients and 294 healthy individuals about their evening routines.

They found that the acid reflux sufferers who went to bed within three hours of eating were seven times more likely to have a bout of acid reflux than those who waited at least three hours after dinner to go to bed.

The researchers then tested the theory on the healthy volunteers. When these individuals went to bed less than three hours after eating, the risk of heartburn tripled.

The study appears in the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
