  The primary reason for early removal of intra-gastric balloon is nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and gastro-esophageal reflux which is caused by the defense mechanism of the stomach, as balloon is considered as a foreign body. However, it will subside by the conventional treatments such as PPIs. Another reason for balloon removal is Candida esophagitis. Even though, it is a rare side effect, it is very serious. This is due to the long term use of PPIs after balloon insertion for reducing the primary side effects.

Keywords: Gastro-Esophageal Reflux; Candida Esophagitis; Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
