Acid Reflux

– [Man] This Medical Minute is brought to
you by Indian River Medical Center with medical information
that’s important to you. – [Dr. Grossman] Hello. I’m Dr.
Bruce Grossman, board certified Gastroenterologist at Indian River Medical
Center. Many patients complain about heartburn. However, acid reflux is often
more than heartburn. Symptoms can include cough, loss of voice, trouble
swallowing, non-cardiac chest pain, adult-onset asthma, and even
premature loss of tooth enamel. Acid reflux is more than just heartburn
and may predispose you to esophageal cancer. If you suffer from acid reflux
more than three times per week, ask your primary care provider to
consider an upper endoscopic evaluation by a gastroenterologist. ♪ [music] ♪
