Many people have heartburn every now and again after eating a huge meal - leaving an unpleasant burning feeling in the chest. But if you have very frequent or severe heartburn, you may have reflux disease.

Reflux is when the contents of the stomach escapes through a valve at the top of the stomach into the oesophagus (the tube that carries food to the stomach) and even into the airways.

The Peptest kit is an immunological in-vitro diagnostic medical device that contains two pepsin monoclonal antibodies; it allows you to identify pepsin in a clinical sample quickly and easy. No specific training is required to use the test but to obtain the test results healthcare professionals can follow this instructional video.

Medication, such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), suppresses stomach acid and helps relieve those 'classic reflux symptoms', such as heartburn and regurgitation. However, PPIs generally give little benefit when symptoms arise away from the oesophagus.

Barrett’s oesophagus is when cells in the lining of the oesophagus appear abnormal & have the potential to turn cancerous. One way that it is treated is using a medical procedure called Radiofrequency ablation.

Making changes to the diet and adopting a more Mediterranean-style diet is one way that could help manage reflux.
