Hiatal Hernia Support Group
The hiatus is an opening in the muscular wall that separates the chest cavity from the abdomen (diaphragm). A hiatal hernia is a condition in which the upper part of your stomach bulges through an opening in your diaphragm. Diaphragm helps keep acid from coming up into your esophagus. When you have a hiatal hernia, it gets easier for the acid to come up. This leaking of acid from your stomach into your esophagus is called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Treatments for hiatal hernia include lifestyle changes (such as losing weight, avoiding fried and fatty foods), medications, and surgery.
