Gastroesophageal reflux disease
The most common symptoms of GERD are heartburn, regurgitation, trouble swallowing (dysphagia) and chest pain. Less common symptoms include pain with swallowing (odynophagia), excessive salivation and nausea.
GERD sometimes causes injury of the esophagus. These injuries may include:
Reflux esophagitis - necrosis of esophageal epithelium causing ulcers near the junction of the stomach and esophagus.
Esophageal strictures - the persistent narrowing of the esophagus caused by reflux-induced inflammation.
Barrett's esophagus - metaplasia (changes of the epithelial cells from squamous to columnar epithelium) of the distal esophagus.
Esophageal adenocarcinoma - a rare form of cancer.
Several other atypical symptoms are associated with GERD, but there is only good evidence for causation when they are accompanied by esophageal injury. These symptoms are chronic cough, laryngitis (hoarseness, throat clearing), asthma and erosion of dental enamel. Some have proposed that symptoms such as pharyngitis, sinusitis, recurrent ear infections and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis are due to GERD, however a causative role has not been established.
NO I MEANT G.U.R.D! do you know how that diease effects a persons digestive system? an further more could you tell ME what GERD is? or the other word gnupa? aint never herd niether one of them words THANK YOU.
OK SO COULD gerd affect your bac level? please.
Yes it can! Belching and acid reflux can alter the breathalizer to read incorrectly.
A blood test would be needed to determine the correct bac.
do you know by any chance what a differnce in . levels that it could make?
I am curious why you want to know?
because my boyfriend has gotten his 3rd drunk driving. is considerd a felony how ever were wondering if we are able to fight his breatlizer results with the fact that he has gerd.
Then he should consult an attorney.
