The link between insomnia and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Back in November of last year I wrote about a Japanese study that found insomnia sufferers were 56% more likely to be diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) compared to healthy sleepers.

Now a study out of Korea has further strengthened this link.

The newer study involved 564 individuals with an average age of 51. Researchers found that those with GERD (51 participants) were more likely to suffer from symptoms of insomnia (and depression).

These individuals also experienced more nighttime awakenings and consumed alcohol more often.

In total, 374 of the 564 participants suffered from insomnia - meaning those with insomnia were at a 3.5 times higher risk for GERD.
