How do old people sleep and burn heart?
According to reports, Japanese researchers found that if the elderly often feel heartburn and chest pain while sleeping, they should go to bed 3 hours after dinner.
The study was conducted by Dr. Fujiwara Tai Yu of Osaka City University and his colleagues. The research results were published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
The researchers found that heartburn and chest pain originated from gastroesophageal reflux disease, and the interval between dinner and bedtime was closely related to gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a common disease, which is an upper digestive motility disease, which is associated with reflux of acid, bile, etc., as well as stimulation and damage to the esophagus and esophagus.
A team led by Dr. Fujiwara investigated 147 patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and 294 healthy people.
The results of the study showed that the shorter the interval between dinner and sleep, the risk of gastroesophageal reflux disease may occur.
Subjects who went to bed within 3 hours after a meal were more likely to suffer from heartburn than those who went to bed 4 hours or more after a meal.
Based on these data, Professor Fujiwara and other researchers believe that people should go back to bed after dinner.
