Place To Find Out About GERD

GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) is when the valve between the esophagus and stomach becomes weak. Normally this valve opens to allow food in and then it shuts tightly. With GERD the valve stays open, allowing stomach acids to flow back up into the esophagus, causing heartburn and many other symptoms. GERD Online does its best to help you Fight The Burn!

Is GERD Hereditary???

Although there is no proof many believe that GERD runs in the family. So instead of finding meds to keep the reflux under control why aren't they making meds to deliver a cure? Well, that is happening. The PAGER Association has quite a study underway that hopefully will lead to a cure. The founder of PAGER wrote the following to us. "PAGER Association is working with Allegheny General Hospital, Center for Genomic Sciences in Pittsburgh on the first every study to find the gene for reflux. We are not hoping for gene therapy - we are hoping to understand the underlying cause of reflux better. This should allow researchers to invent a medication that attacks the cause, rather than masking the symptoms. " If you would like to donate to the cause or would like more info I encourage you to visit
