Managing GORD

Managing Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD)

This page was previously called “Managing Silent Reflux”.  Silent Reflux is a term that we are no longer using – Laryngopharyngeal Reflux is the correct term.

GORD causes stomach acids to be “refluxed” into the oesophagus/throat and cause inflammation and discomfort/pain, or other complications such as feeding or breathing problems.  There may or may not be spilling or vomiting.
