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

(42%), Chicago and Los Angeles (39%)(10).

-- New York City had the highest rate of respondents (48%) who consulted

with their doctor about acid reflux followed by Miami (47%), Chicago

(43%), Houston (41%) and Los Angeles (39%)(11).

GERD, which occurs when contents of the stomach back up into the esophagus, is often mistaken for occasional heartburn because frequent, persistent heartburn is the most common symptom of the disease. This can be a misconception, as GERD is a chronic condition and, if left untreated, may potentially lead to more serious medical conditions, such as erosion of the esophagus.

GERD affects a large portion of the Hispanic-American community, but anyone can develop the disease. Risk increases with age, but symptoms of the condition can be alleviated with proper treatment. Consulting a physician and staying updated on new information released regarding the condition are best for determining the right options for keeping symptoms of GERD under control.

About the GERD Awareness Survey

The GERD Awareness survey was conducted by StrategyOne, an applied research consulting firm on behalf of AstraZeneca, as a follow-up to a 2005 survey conducted by Impacto Group LLC. The survey polled 1,000 Hispanic-Americans in the top-five U.S. markets by Hispanic-American population including: Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami and New York from April 3, 2008 through April 23, 2008. The survey, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level, was conducted using the field services of Opinion Access and Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI).
