Summary

Introduction

Barrett’s esophagus (BE) represents the premalignant morphology of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Evidence indicates a positive correlation between GERD vs. obesity and increased sugar consumption.

Methods

Here we analyzed recently published data (2006–2017) on the role of dietary sugar intake for BE development (main focus year 2017).

Results

Recent investigations found a positive association between obesity, hip waist ratio and dietary sugar intake and Barrett’s esophagus.

Conclusion

Sugar intake positively associates with BE. A low carbohydrate diet should be recommended for persons with BE and GERD.
