Can gerd cause interstitial lung disease? And if so are the chances of developing ILD from gerd small?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: In theory, yes

Gerd can in theory cause lung problems if there is a chronic regurgitation of stomach acid that is aspirated into the lungs.
This is a very rare event for a young otherwise healthy person.
