Your Heartburn May Not Be Harmless


Acid reflux. Chest pain. Chronic cough or sore throat. They may seem like harmless symptoms, but they could be a sign of a disease called gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.

Early detection and treatment of GERD is essential, as the disease can lead to serious health problems, including Barrett’s esophagus, a precancerous disease of the esophagus.

If you, or someone you love, have experienced these symptoms, take charge of your health and take the next step towards treatment.
