Gastroesophageal reflux disease

GastoesophagealPhoto_LargeGastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common problem which occurs in infants and children with respiratory diseases, neurological problems, feeding disorders, and otherwise healthy children. In infants GERD can result in spitting, irritability, vomiting, or coughing, in an otherwise healthy child. The older child might also complain of heartburn. GERD may cause mild symptoms but in some children, GERD can cause significant complications like esophagitis or breathing problems.
