Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has been found to decrease work productivity in sufferers due to disturbed sleep from their symptoms (i.e. epigastric pain, waterbrash, burping, burning). It can also affect their personal life, and lead to depression and anxiety. Use of medication, for example, a proton pump inhibitor can reduce reflux symptoms and therefore bring about an improvement in quality of life.
