GERD Management

The Case for Lifestyle in an Era of PPIs

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common condition in the United States, routinely treated with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). While effective and generally well tolerated, PPIs have been associated with undesirable long-term side effects and are often used inappropriately. Lifestyle medicine can be effective in reducing GERD symptoms in many patients without the untoward side effects of pharmacotherapy. This article will describe relevant emerging and established side effects of long-term PPI use, the efficacy of lifestyle modifications in the management of GERD, and discuss the importance of advocating for lifestyle when PPIs are not otherwise indicated.
