Healing Heartburn PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Healing Heartburn free pdf Nearly everyone has experienced heartburn, the sensation of burning discomfort in the chest, often brought on by eating a large meal. In fact, heartburn is the most common gastroesophageal disorder in the United States - more than seven in ten adult Americans suffer from heartburn each month. Few people, however, realize that heartburn is really just one symptom of the disorder known as acid reflux disease or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition in which stomach acid repeatedly washes up into the oesophagus, or remains in the oesophagus too long. Most people experience GERD as a cluster of simple symptoms -belching, chest pain and indigestion. Others suffer painful or difficult swallowing, asthma, chronic cough and hoarseness, symptoms that can indicate a more serious disorder or lead to such complications as bleeding, oesophageal stricture, and oesophageal cancer. Some people, however, experience no symptoms - and they run an especially high risk of developing complications. This handbook seeks to educate people about GERD's symptoms and the range of available treatments and is designed to help people take charge of their lives by doing something about their own acid reflux disease. Authors Dr Lawrence J. Cheskin and Dr Brian E. Lacy cover diagnostic tests, a step-by-step approach to treatment, the effectiveness of medications, complications and how to avoid them, and special considerations for pregnant women and for children. Illustrations, questionnaires, patient vignettes, answers to commonly-asked questions, and a list of additional resources complete this comprehensive patient guide.
