PPI Takes a Back Seat to Novel Options for Treating LPR

Integrative Approaches to Reflux Disease: Beyond Proton-Pump Inhibitors
8:45 – 9:45 am
Room N230

The use of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) for the treatment of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) disease has become common because they are effective, but the long-term use of PPIs are associated with adverse effects. A Miniseminar will explore diagnosis and alterative treatments for LPR.

Five speakers will review evaluation methods and tests for LPR, including how to recognize signs and symptoms, the use of questionnaires about reflux, symptoms, and pharyngeal pH-metry.

The speakers also will explore novel treatments for LPR, including voice therapy, probiotics, herbal therapies, and integrative East-West medicine approaches.
