New Survey Reveals Hispanic-Americans Are Taking Steps to Better Understand and Manage GERD
Date:5/19/2008

oming more informed about the prevalence of GERD in their community," said Marta Illueca, MD, a specialist in gastroenterology at AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) who pioneered the original survey. "But with more than six million Hispanic-Americans suffering from a condition that can severely impact their daily lifestyles, it becomes increasingly imperative for us to understand the signs and symptoms of GERD and talk with our doctors to help diagnose and treat the disease."

The latest survey also revealed that Hispanic-Americans are now increasingly able to identify symptoms of the condition. Sixty-five percent of respondents said they or someone in their household currently suffers from GERD-related symptoms two or more times a week(7). The symptoms most commonly experienced by those surveyed included: heartburn, belching, an acidic or sour taste in the mouth, hoarseness or persistent coughing(8). In 2005, only 38 percent identified themselves or someone in their household as suffering from heartburn, and 32 percent said they or someone in their household suffered from such symptoms(1).

GERD Awareness Survey Results -- Regional Perspective:

-- Out of the top-five U.S. markets by Hispanic-American population,

Houston had the highest awareness levels of GERD (75%), trailed by

Chicago and Los Angeles (tied at 71%), Miami (70%) and New York

(56%)(9).

-- Houston also had the highest rate of respondents with GERD experience

(53%) including those who either personally suffered from GERD or

heartburn, or someone in their household suffering from the condition,

two or more times a week(10).

-- Results from other markets included: Miami (44%), New York City
