What is GERD?

GERD is gastroesophageal reflux disease and occurs when there is reflux of stomach contents into the esophagus that creates troublesome symptoms and/or complications. It may include erosion (visible injury to the mucosal lining) into the esophagus or not.

What tests does Index Health typically use to diagnose GERD?

We consider a variety of factors for the diagnosis, which may include:
check mark blue
GERD is often diagnosed clinically, i.e based on symptoms.
check mark blue
For symptoms that have been unusual, severe or prolonged, an upper endoscopy (EGD) may be necessary to determine if any erosion is present.

What is our approach to treating those diagnosed with GERD?

Our GERD treatment approach is entirely personalized to the individual. It may include:

Gut Health: focus on improving dysbiosis of the microbiome, restoring impaired digestive functions, healing the intestinal lining/barrier, and treating any fungal/bacterial/parasitic infections.

Nutrition: Evaluate for food sensitivities or allergies and remove these through carefully planned elimination diets. Remove potential toxins and aggravators like spicy foods, caffeine, alcohol, or chocolate while the stomach heals. Add in healing foods that contain polyphenols to help improve the intestinal wall, and promote normal digestion.

Gut-Brain connection: we work to rebalance and improve one’s stress resilience utilizing individualized programs. Without this focus on stress, all of the above can be undone.

A focus on nutrition plus exercise can help to improve weight, which is also a direct contributor towards GERD symptoms.

How long does it take to reduce and manage GERD symptoms? What are possible results?

Symptoms may improve quickly but often it takes 3-6 months to begin to see true healing. The longer the symptoms have been present, the longer it may take. We may, with time, be able to wean off antacid pharmaceuticals, however in some cases they are necessary chronically.

What happens if you don’t manage GERD properly?

Without addressing the underlying causes, symptoms may persist and progress. Erosion that occurs may cause permanent damage to the esophagus. It may progress to Barrett’s esophagitis, which predisposes to cancer (adenocarcinoma) of the esophagus.
