Gerd

GERD Acid Reflux Anchorage, AKDo you have symptoms of GERD, or acid reflux, that make the moments after each meal something to be wary about? If so, you’re not alone, as many Americans today are afflicted with GERD and its many painful symptoms.


GERD, also known as acid reflux, is characterized typically by heartburn, which is the irritated feeling in your esophagus created by acid jumping back up into it from your stomach. Acid reflux also includes regurgitation, the physical manifestation of that stomach acid flowing up into your esophagus. These symptoms are not something that should be ignored– particularly because it’s often a sign of an underlying condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This can lead to various health complications including:

  • Heartburn
  • Esophagitis
  • Ulcers
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Esophageal spasms
  • Greater risk of esophageal cancer

At Alaska Digestive and Liver Disease, your gastrointestinal health can find the full effects of consistent, long-term care under the trusted techniques of the helpful physicians on site. They understand the causes and cures of acid reflux and GERD as a whole.

While the severity of patients’ GERD symptoms has to do with their lower esophageal sphincter dysfunctions, treating this surprisingly common condition can be accomplished in most cases through diet modifications and healthy eating.

  • "From my first phone call to his office and subsequent video conferencing with Dr. McClendon did I realize that I had got the right Doctor. My interaction with his staff and him were amazing. For a person that is anxious and reluctant to go to doctors, they made me feel at ease."
