RÉSUMÉ

Considered as a chronic illness, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has manifested itself as a widespread condition throughout the adult population. As a growing epidemic, GERD has reached a staggering prevalence of 10% to 20% in the Western world, by affecting up to 30 million people in the United States alone. Sixty percent of individuals in an adult population will experience symptoms and the impact of GERD over a period of 12 months, whereas a remarkable 20% to 30% of individuals will have weekly symptoms. This rapid increase in the prevalence of the disease requires equally rapid management techniques. Although the disease itself has no cure, management of symptoms and certain pharmacological and surgical advancements have allowed for individuals affected by GERD to receive specific treatment options sufficient for them to live a healthy life. In this paper, such management options will be examined and discussed in reference to their effectiveness in treating the symptoms presented in GERD patients.
