ABSTRACT
Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) has significant impact on health and quality of life. An ideal treatment for GORD should improve reflux symptoms and the health related quality of life. Several studies exploring the causal factors of GORD have yielded conflicting reports. The rise of the scores by more than 9, indicates a positive response at the third month stage. The achievement of the protected rise in the sixth month follow up GORD symptom frequency and GORD symptom bothersomeness scores, by the third month itself indicates the interim success of the study. The sixth month data will indicate the sustainability of the improved scores.
