New Nationwide Survey Identifies Need for Increased Dialogue Between Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or Frequent Heartburn Sufferers and Health Care Providers
Date:3/23/2011

picy foods (74 percent), foods containing tomatoes (73 percent), or fried or fatty foods (69 percent). In addition, sufferers report that eating a large meal (70 percent) or eating too close to bedtime (70 percent) triggers their symptoms.  
  • Many sufferers are interested in tools to help better communicate with their HCP about their GERD and/or heartburn, such as a symptom checklist to be filled out prior to their appointment (52 percent) and/or a list of questions to ask their HCP (50 percent).

  • In response to the survey, the AGA and Takeda have created a new tool to help facilitate patient-HCP communication about GERD symptoms. This new tool, and other information about GERD, is available at http://www.gastro.org/GERDtracker.

    About Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

    People experience gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in a variety of ways. Persistent heartburn is the most common symptom of GERD and usually feels like a burning pain that starts behind the breastbone and radiates upward to the neck. GERD occurs when the muscle located between the esophagus and stomach, called the lower esophageal sphincter, opens when it should be closed, allowing for acid or other stomach contents back up into the esophagus. GERD is often triggered by certain foods, pressure on the abdomen, and/or being overweight, and may be associated with serious complications over time, such as esophageal strictures and Barrett's esophagus.
