At Tampa Bay Reflux Center, we approach the treatment of GERD by correcting the cause of GERD, rather than by just managing or treating its symptoms. That is why we seriously discourage the use of short-term treatments that qualm the symptoms while increasing the risk of complications. These methods are sometimes necessary, such as when weaning from a PPI or while awaiting surgery for GERD, yet these remedies should never be considered a long-term solution. Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t settle for just managing your symptoms of GERD.

If you or someone you know are presenting any of these symptoms, then it may be time to test for chronic acid reflux. Learn all about how the Esophageal pH Monitoring exam diagnoses GERD.
