GERD Risk Test

Heartburn can be a minor, occasional annoyance precipitated by a big holiday meal. But for some people heartburn is a painful, chronic problem and a symptom of a disease called GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease.

During the 16th annual GERD Awareness Week, Nov. 23-29, people experiencing symptoms of GERD are encouraged to talk to their physicians and learn more about new and emerging treatments for this common condition.

It is estimated that 25-40% of American adults experience symptomatic GERD each month, and 10-20% suffer from it daily.

How will you choose to fight GERD? Take the next step by selecting one of the below options.
