What is Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease?


Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the ring of muscle between your esophagus and your stomach. This ring is called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). If you have it, you may get heartburn or acid indigestion. You can ease your GERD symptoms through diet and lifestyle changes, medication, or surgery. #GERDAwarenessWeek
