The LESS GERD Trial For Adults Living with Severe Reflux

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic digestive disease that affects nearly 65 million people in the United States.1 It occurs when stomach acid or stomach contents flow back into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash (reflux) irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD.2 Frequent and troublesome symptoms may include one or more of the following: heartburn, regurgitation, sleep disruption, vocal impairment, and respiratory complications.
