11 most common reasons behind indigestion, according to an expert

Indigestion, also known as indigestion, is a common digestive disorder that causes discomfort or pain in the upper abdomen. It is often characterized by symptoms such as bloating, belching, heartburn, nausea and a feeling of fullness after eating. Indigestion can be triggered by various factors such as overeating, consumption of fatty or spicy foods, smoking, stress, certain medications, or underlying medical conditions.

While occasional indigestion is considered normal and usually resolves on its own without medical intervention, regular or chronic indigestion may indicate an underlying problem that requires medical attention. Nutritionist Lavneet Batra shares the common reasons behind frequent indigestion.

11 common causes of indigestion according to nutritionists:

1. Overeating

Eating too much or eating too frequently can damage the digestive system, leading to indigestion.

2. Spicy Food

Spices and peppers can irritate the stomach lining and cause indigestion in some individuals.

3. Acidic foods

Citrus fruits, tomatoes and acidic beverages can increase acid production in the stomach, causing indigestion.

4. Smoking

Smoking can irritate the stomach lining and contribute to indigestion.

5. Caffeine and Alcohol

Too much caffeine and alcohol can relax the lower esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach acid to flow back up, and cause indigestion and heartburn.

6. Stress and anxiety

Emotional stress can affect digestion and contribute to indigestion symptoms

7. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Chronic acid reflux can cause persistent indigestion and heartburn.

8. Medicines

Some medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can irritate the stomach lining and cause indigestion.

9. Peptic Ulcer

These open sores on the lining of the stomach or duodenum can cause indigestion, especially after eating.

10. Gallstones

Gallstones can block the bile duct, causing indigestion and pain.

11. Digestive disorders

Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastritis and celiac disease can cause indigestion.

Following a healthy routine and diet can help prevent indigestion. In case of prolonged indigestion or severe indigestion, it is advisable to consult a health care professional who can identify the cause and recommend appropriate treatment options.
