Can GERD be cured, or is it a lifelong condition?

GERD is typically a chronic condition, and while there is no absolute cure, it can be effectively managed with a combination of lifestyle changes, medications, and in some cases, surgery.

Treatment aims to control symptoms, prevent complications, and improve quality of life. Many individuals find relief through dietary modifications, weight management, and medications that reduce stomach acid production.

In severe cases or when complications arise, surgical intervention like fundoplication may be considered. Continuous management and periodic reassessment with healthcare professionals are essential to optimize treatment strategies and ensure long-term well-being for those with GERD.
