Acidity refers to a condition in your stomach where the contents of gastric acid increase rapidly.  It mainly happens due to excess consumption of junk food, insufficient sleep or inactive lifestyle. Apart from headaches, vomiting, and nausea, here’s a list of five major health disorders that take place due to acidity.

Peptic Ulcer

It refers to an ulcer in the Oesophagus due to excess amount of gastric acid in your stomach. In order to avoid ulcers, it is important to avoid foods that are highly acidic in nature and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Reflux Oesophagitis

This disorder arises due to an increase of gastric acid in your stomach that further leads to a damaged Oesophageal mucosa. This problem also leads to nausea and sore throat.


Acidity brings along a lot of health disorders and one of them is bloating. In such a situation, your stomach looks constricted and makes you feel full irrespective of your food consumption.


It refers to a burning sensation behind the lower end of the sternum that radiates upwards. It could also arise due to consumption of highly acidic foods like chocolates, tomatoes or citrus fruits.

Weight gain

Acidity leads to storage of food for a longer period inside your stomach and a difficulty in digestion. This food gets converted into unnecessary fats and makes you gain excess weight.
