- Conditions that co-exist with GOR. It is hard to know which ones come first, or if they truly just co-exist e.g. allergies, food intolerance, coeliac disease.
- Disorders that affect the functioning of the palate, oesophagus or the gastrointestinal tract in some way e.g. cleft palate, laryngomalacia, cerebral palsy, any neurological condition.
- Diseases that mimic GOR e.g. eosinophillic oesophagitis (EoE) or eosinophillic gastrointestinal disorder (EGID). Eosinophillic oesophagitis (EoE) or eosinophillic gastrointestinal disorder (EGID) are distinct from gastro-oesophageal reflux, but may co-exist or may mimic GOR. There may, however, be no symptoms of GOR at all.
Gastric Reflux Support Network NZ provides support for EGID and Laryngomalacia, and have Private Facebook Groups for these Networks. All our Support Network groups are private and available to GRSNNZ members only.
