NERD (Heartburn)
Nonerosive Reflux Disease

Nonerosive reflux disease (NERD) is a disease that causes heartburn, (a burning sensation in your chest and throat) without erosions wearing away of the inner lining of the esophagus. Currently the standard treatment for NERD is proton pump inhibitors such as Omeprazole, Dexilent, Nexium, etc.

NERD presents itself with GERD-like symptoms but doesn't show any signs of damage to the esophagus when an upper endoscopy is performed. If you aren't sure whether you suffer from NERD or GERD but you experience heartburn as your main symptom give us a call.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Experiencing heartburn 4 or more days a week
  • At least 18 years of age

Participants in this study will receive all study related medical care, examinations, and potential endoscopies (EGD) at no cost to them or their insurance.
