GERD Online Assessment

GERD campaign photo Maybe you find yourself avoiding a favorite food, or you take antacids when you get heartburn. You probably realize you are not alone. More than 60 million people in the U.S. experience heartburn, and 15 million of them have it every day. Treating heartburn with over-the-counter medications provides short-term relief, but if the symptoms persist, it can cause more harm than good. Heartburn is a common symptom of a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.

To learn if you are suffering from GERD, we developed a quick, easy way to rate your symptoms. Our GERD Online Assessment will lead you through some brief questions that help determine if reflux is causing your symptoms and what type of care you need. For some people, over-the-counter medications along with lifestyle modifications may be all that is necessary. For others, more comprehensive services may be needed.
