Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) was recognized as a clinical entity in the mid-1930s and now is the most prevalent upper gastrointestinal (GI) disorder in clinical practice. Around the same time, in 1934, Bray suggested a link between gut symptoms and airway disease. Acid-related laryngeal ulcerations and granulomas were first reported by Chery in 1968. Subsequent studies suggested that acid reflux might be a contributory factor in other laryngeal and respiratory conditions. In 1979, Pellegrini and DeMeester were the first to document the link between these airway symptoms and reflux of gastric contents. They also proved that treatment of reflux disease results in elimination of these airway symptoms.

The real danger of GERD is that over time, refluxed stomach acid can erode or cause ulcerations in the lining of the esophagus. Some GERD sufferers develop scar tissue, which narrows the esophagus and can make swallowing food difficult. People with GERD also are at higher risk of developing Barrett’s esophagus—severe damage to the esophageal lining, which is linked to an increased risk of developing esophageal cancer
