Abstract

It is widely accepted that proton pump inhibitors are the most effective therapy for management of gastroesophageal reflux disease. H2-receptor antagonists, prokinetic agents, and antacids are used in treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. In addition to these medical treatments, beneficial effects of simple anti-reflux measures on management of gastroesophageal disease are evaluated. Simple anti-reflux measures include elevation of the head of the bed, weight loss, reduced food intake, and the avoidance of precipitating foods and drugs. In this chapter, we summarized the utility of these simple anti-reflux measures for management of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
