Sept. 20, 2012

Between 1995–1997 and 2006–2009, the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux symptoms increased substantially. At least weekly gastroesophageal reflux symptoms increased by 47 percent.

Changes in the occurrence of gastroesophageal reflux symptoms in the population remain uncertain. A study in Gut suggests that between 1995–1997 and 2006–2009, the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux symptoms increased substantially. At least weekly gastroesophageal reflux symptoms increased by 47 percent. The average annual incidence of severe gastroesophageal reflux symptoms was 0.23 percent, and the corresponding spontaneous loss was 1.2 percent. The incidence and spontaneous loss of gastroesophageal reflux symptoms were influenced by gender and age.
