There are two mechanisms by which one can target pepsin – irreversibly inactivate the enzyme to prevent it from becoming reactivated and via a receptor antagonist to prevent receptor-mediated uptake of pepsin.

Dyspepsia is a common problem seen by GPs, thought to affect 20% of adults and costing the UK economy £1 billion per year. This interesting article looks at managing symptoms.

The lower oesophageal sphincter (LOS) is the ring of muscle between the oesophagus and stomach. Normally, this stomach valve opens to allow food to pass into the stomach and closes to prevent contents flowing back into the oesophagus. Reflux disease often results from a weak or damaged LOS which causes stomach contents to reflux inappropriately. https://www.peptest.co.uk/reflux/

Continuous, untreated #reflux symptoms can lead to a very poor quality of life and may also lead to serious problems, such as inflammation of the #oesophagus (known as oesophagitis), which in turn can lead to the formation of ulcers. https://www.peptest.co.uk/reflux-oesophageal-ulcers/

"I began to notice the difference in how I felt running if I was consistent about avoiding my [reflux] triggers at least 24 to 48 hours before a run."

An interesting article on gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and exercise.

Hoarseness and discomfort when speaking are symptoms of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR).

When you swallow food, the walls of the oesophagus squeeze together and moves food down the oesophagus to the stomach.

Reflux is when stomach contents leaks up into the oesophagus.

It usually occurs as a result of the ring of muscle at the bottom of the oesophagus becoming weakened.
