Diagnosis

Diagnosis of GERD

A diagnosis of GERD should be made by your physician. Diagnoses can often be made based on the presentation of common symptoms, especially in patients with more mild cases of GERD. However, the diagnosis of more complicated GERD can be tricky given the variety of symptoms and manifestations. There are a number of diagnostic tools a physician may use to diagnose GERD:

  • +-EGD (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy or Endoscopy):
  • +-Upper GI Series (Barium Swallow or Esophagram):
  • +-Manometry:
  • +-pH Monitoring:
  • +-Impedance:
  • +-Patient history surveys:

    Inherent risks associated with the diagnostic procedures described should be discussed with your physician.
