First Things First, What is GERD?
GERD is the most common gastrointestinal-related diagnosis made by physicians in the U.S.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) affects an estimated 1 in every 5 Americans.
 
Do I need to See a Doctor If I Have GERD?
Yes. Left untreated, GERD can cause damage to the esophagus, chronic symptoms that can be
very painful, even debilitating, and can be a progressive disease that will not resolve itself.
Untreated GERD can also lead to conditions such as Barrett’s esophagus and/or esophageal
cancer.
