GORD is one of the most common gastrointestinal conditions in Australia. It is estimated to occur in 10–15% of the population, with a rising prevalence, most likely due to obesity.
Heartburn – the predominant symptom, affects approximately 1 out of 5 people in Australia and the incidence of GORD (gastro-oesophageal reflux disease – non-ulcer acid dyspepsia – NAD) has been noted to be rising worldwide.
Many of the factors known to be involved in GORD and NAD are not fully understood and thus, the orthodox treatment is often symptomatic and unsatisfactory. risk factors include older age, male gender, caucasian ethnicity, diets high in fats, sugars and salt, and smoking.
