pH Studies

 These are performed for the investigation of acid reflux into the oesophagus 

Common symptoms of pH imbalance include heartburn or acid reflux, particularly after meals, persistent cough or sore throat, difficulty swallowing, regurgitation of food or sour liquid, chest pain, chronic hoarseness or voice changes, and asthma-like symptoms such as wheezing or trouble breathing.

Treatment Options:

  • Lifestyle changes: Avoiding trigger foods, eating smaller meals, and maintaining a healthy weight.
  • Medications: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), H2 blockers, or antacids to reduce stomach acid production.
  • Dietary adjustments: Limiting acidic or spicy foods, caffeine, and alcohol.
  • Elevating the head of the bed while sleeping to prevent nighttime reflux.
  • Surgery: In severe cases, surgery (laparoscopic fundoplication) may be recommended to strengthen the lower esophageal sphincter.
