GERD Book Review:

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is one of the most common maladies of mankind. Approximately 40% of the adult population of the USA suffers from significant heartburn and the numerous antacids advertised incessantly on national television represents a $8 billion per year drug market. The ability to control acid secretion with the increasingly effective acid-suppressive agents such as the H2 blockers (pepcid, zantac) and proton pump inhibitors (nexium, prevacid) has given physicians an excellent method of treating the symptoms of acid reflux. Unfortunately, this has not eradicated reflux disease. It has just changed its nature. While heartburn, ulceration and strictures have become rare, reflux-induced adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is becoming increasingly common. Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and gastric cardia is now the most rapidly increasing cancer type in the Western world. The increasing incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma has created an enormous interest and stimulus for research in this area. GERD brings together a vast amount of disparate literature and presents the entire pathogenesis of reflux disease in one place. In addition to providing a new concept of how gastroesophageal reflux causes cellular changes in the esophagus, GERD also offers a complete solution to a problem that has confused physicians for over a century. Both clinical and pathological information about reflux disease and its treatment are presented. GERD is meant to be used as a comprehensive reference for gastroenterologists, esophageal surgeons, and pathologists alike. Outlines how gastroesophageal reflux causes cellular changes in the esophagus Brings together the pathogenesis of the disease in one source and applies it toward clinical treatment Tom DeMeester is THE leading international expert on reflux disease; Parakrama Chandrasoma is one of the leading pathologists in the area Book contains approximately 350 illustrations Ancillary web site features color illustrations: www.chandrasoma.com

Acid Reflux Diet Book Review:

If you're someone who is suffering from Gastroesophageal reflux disease, otherwise referred to as GERD for short, you know just how painful and aggravating this condition can be. The two primary common side effects present in those who are suffering from GERD include: * Persistent heartburn that never seems to let up * A burning feeling of discomfort in the upper chest as well as abdomen For some people this occurs only after eating a meal and on an occasional basis, while for others it's present each and every time they eat a meal and tends to last much longer in duration. The answer is NOT to depend on prescription and over-the-counter stomach acid drugs that can cause serious health complications. By transitioning over to a diet that's filled with the proper foods and focusing on eating slightly smaller meals more frequently throughout the day to reduce the amount of stress that's placed on the system, you can effectively control and combat GERD. In this book, we're going to cover all the main foods that you should be eating in your diet to effectively help treat the condition and free yourself from GERD symptoms for the time to come. If you stay consistent with your efforts and make sure that you are not letting the wrong foods enter your system, you should start to see significant improvements almost immediately. Includes a shopping list that conveniently organizes them as you would find them while shopping.

GERD Book Review:

GERD: A New Understanding of Pathology, Pathophysiology, and Treatment transforms the assessment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) from its present state, which is largely dependent on clinical definition and management, to a more objective scientific basis that depends on pathologic assessment. Sequential chapters in this single-author book describe the fetal development of the esophagus, the normal adult state, and the way exposure to gastric juice causes epithelial and lower esophageal sphincter damage at a cellular level. It allows recognition of the pathologic manifestations of lower esophageal sphincter damage and develops new histopathologic criteria for quantitating such damage. This understanding provides new pathologic criteria for definition and diagnosis of GERD from its earliest cellular stage. Algorithms based on measurement of sphincter damage can identify, even before the onset of clinical GERD, persons who will never develop GERD during life, those who develop GERD but remain with mild and easily controlled disease, and those who will progress to severe GERD with failure to control symptoms, Barrett esophagus and adenocarcinoma. Aggressive early intervention in the last group with the objective of preventing disease progression to its end points of uncontrolled symptoms and adenocarcinoma becomes feasible. Provides a new method of assessment of GERD that has never previously been presented, creating a pathway to control Describes a new pathologic test based on standard histology that can define lower esophageal sphincter damage Sequential chapters outline the way GERD progresses from the perspective of the amount of damage to the lower esophageal sphincter Provides new avenues of clinical research and technologic innovations in pathology and treatment aimed at preventing esophageal adenocarcinoma

The Clinical Relevance of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease and Laryngopharyngeal Reflux in Clinical Practice Book Review:

Gastric reflux may be considered a para-physiological event that may occur up to 50 times a day. It usually happens when gas (less commonly liquids) flow back from stomach into esophagus. However, when defense mechanisms leave, disease may progress. If the esophagus is the trigger, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) emerges. The prevalence of GERD in the primary care setting seems to be even more evident when one considers that, in the United States, 4.6 million office encounters annually are primarily for GERD, whereas 9.1 million encounters include GERD in the top 3 diagnoses for the encounter. GERD constitutes also the most frequently first-listed gastrointestinal diagnosis in ambulatory care visits. In addition, the extraesophageal manifestations of reflux, including LPR, asthma, and chronic cough, have been estimated to cost $5438 per patient in direct medical expenses in the first year after presentation and $13,700 for 5 years. Presently, the newest alginate compounds renowned the interest in this attracting and stimulating area. In this regard, a new medical device (Marial®), unique still now possessing the indication for both GERD and LPR, has been recently launched in the Italian market, two large surveys were conducted in Italy: RELIEF, involving 86 otolaryngologists, and EMERGE, involving 56 gastroenterologists. The aims of these surveys were: (1) to define clinical characteristics, including previous treatment, of the patients referred to consultation; (2) to evaluate the reliability of RFS, GIS, and RSI questionnaires in real-world settings, such as specialist office; and (3) to investigate the patients' perception of efficacy of the prescribed therapy, based on the best practice and considering also the new medical device Comparing the patients' perception of treatment efficacy, reduction in RSI values for each single symptom before and after a 4 week-treatment with Marial® alone or with PPI in add-on in EMERGE and RELIEF patients are reported. Marial® alone treatment induced a statistically significant higher reduction in each single symptom in RELIEF patients than in EMERGE patients, with the exception of heartburn, chest pain, indigestion, or stomach acid coming up. Similar results were obtained evaluating the reduction in RSI values in patients treated with PPI in add-on that was able to determine a higher statistically significant decrease in RELIEF than in EMERGE patients in each single symptom, with the exception of heartburn, chest pain, indigestion, or stomach acid coming up.

Heartburn Solved Book Review:

Heartburn leading to acid reflux disease, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) seems pretty simple, right? Just an issue of too much stomach acid, right? Not so fast. The mass media, internet and conventional medicine have largely mischaracterized this condition - affecting millions and growing each year - for decades. "Heartburn Solved" identifies the real causes for this condition and lays out simple and low-cost natural solutions that physicians and their patients can readily employ. "Heartburn Solved" is not an anecdotal essay of opinionated conjecture. The author's groundbreaking scientific findings are supported by nearly a thousand clinical studies and hundreds of references from traditional medicines around the world, forming the most comprehensive alternative health treatise on GERD available today.
