The Seriousness of Acid Reflux

blog-to-educate-on-the-seriousness-of-acid-refluxThis is the launch of our Educational Blog on the subject of Acid Reflux, the effects of which can range from minor pain and inconvenience to fatal cancer. My chief aim is to bring awareness and understanding of this condition to the attention of those who suffer from Chronic Acid Reflux.

One in four people suffer from acid reflux in one degree or another. Acid reflux is quite harmless in some cases, but can be life threatening in others. (Keep in mind that Esophageal cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the United States.) One of the virtues of your pain is that it may be telling you, “Stop what you are doing to your body!”

Sometimes acid reflux or heartburn can mask, or be caused by, other serious conditions and that is why, if you suffer from such a condition, you must put yourself under a doctor’s care. Any information you obtain here, or on our site, is not meant to be a substitute for seeing your doctor.

Now, the good news: there are things you can do to mitigate acid reflux. There are readily available medications, as well as easy or difficult life-style changes, which are effective. Some medications that can be used when the pain begins, while others can be utilized preemptively. Of course, many medications can cause serious side effects and should not be used long term without proper medical supervision.

Attacking the acid reflux problem early can prevent your mild condition from becoming a serious threat, which may require prolonged or drastic curative action later. (Even if you do not personally suffer from Acid Reflex symptoms, I suggest that you pass this on to family or friends who may have this problem.)

Next week we will discuss some symptoms of acid reflux, and the progression of acid reflux disease. I will attempt to explain why it is important to treat this common condition as early as possible.
