Hiatus hernia (HH) is a pathology that affects more than 20% of the adult population. In patients with obesity, the proportion can reach 50%, this being one of the causes of our long experience in this pathology.
A hiatal hernia occurs when the upper part of the stomach exceeds the diaphragm through a natural opening, called a hiatus. The hiatus dilates and opens, more frequently due to obesity and less frequently due to professional causes (singers, blowers, wind instrument performers), or by simple genetic tendency (family aggregation may exist).
To understand the dietary recommendations that we must follow in case of suffering a hiatus hernia, the first thing we have to know is what it is and when it can occur.
To start, we have to know what a hernia is; since, although in this article I am only going to focus on the hiatus hernia, you have to know that there are many types. A hernia appears when we have a failure in the abdominal wall and part of an organ or tissue enters this area causing the appearance of a kind of lump on the body surface. Depending on the area where the hernia occurs, we can call it: hiatus, inguinal, femoral, umbilical, disc, and so on.
