Welcome to the GERD Channel

In a person who has gastroesophageal reflux disease (also known as acid reflux disease or GERD), stomach acid flows up into the esophagus more often than normal, causing damage to the esophagus. Symptoms of GERD can include a sore throat, painful swallowing, and heartburn that occurs two or more times a week and is not helped by over-the-counter medications. But did you know that GERD may also aggravate -- or even cause -- asthma, chronic cough, or pulmonary fibrosis?
 

Welcome to the GERD Health Channel by eMedTV. Here you will find in-depth information on GERD, including a more detailed list of its possible symptoms, the relationship between cigarette smoking and GERD, and a few simple ways to relieve the symptoms of nighttime GERD. Whether you have just been diagnosed with GERD or are considering surgery for GERD after lifestyle changes and medications have proven ineffective, you will find a wealth of useful information here. This health channel has a broad range of articles on GERD causes, diagnosis, treatment options, and more.
