With a new study finding a link between gut infection and depression, Yourwellness Magazine reported on the causes of Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease.
London, UK (Profitable.com) A new study, published last week in the journal BMC Medicine, has found that people who take certain types of antidepressants may be at higher risk for potentially deadly Clostridium difficile infection. Researchers from the University of Michigan say that their findings should improve identification and early treatment of C. difficile infection in people taking these antidepressants; Remeron (mirtazapine) and Prozac (fluoxetine).
In a university news release, study leader Dr. Mary Rogers commented, “Depression is common worldwide. We have long known that depression is associated with changes in the gastrointestinal system. The interaction between the brain and the gut, called the ‘brain-gut axis,’ is fascinating and deserves more study. Our finding of a link between depression and Clostridium difficile should help us better identify those at risk of infection and perhaps encourage exploration of the underlying brain-gut mechanisms involved.’ (http://www.healthfinder.gov/News/Article/676154/some-antidepressants-may-raise-risk-for-gastro-infection)

Yourwellness Magazine outlined the six main risk factors of GORD:
