Acid reflux is a condition that a great many people experience regularly, yet do little to prevent or manage it. It is most often shrugged off as unavoidable, or untreatable.
At its most benign, the most common symptom is heartburn. Heartburn is best characterized by that burning sensation in the chest, which leads to the reflux that creeps up from your stomach back into your throat. In most cases, it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth that borders on nausea.
However, the incidence of acid reflux is alarming. Over half of the world population is expected to experience acid reflux at least one time in their lives.
Those who do nothing can expect symptoms more often.
GERD is diagnosed typically when a patient has acid reflux symptoms 2 or more times per week on a recurrent basis. If acid reflux is left untreated, the likelihood of developing a hernia or even esophageal cancer increases.
