ratings and reviews)
Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) is a rare condition in which the sphincter (a ring of muscle at the end of the esophagus), which essentially keeps the contents of the stomach in the right place, doesn’t work right. Therefore, in Laryngopharyngeal Reflux, the acid of the stomach backs up into the back of the throat causing inflammation in areas that are not protected against gastric acid exposure. Some of the symptoms of Laryngopharyngeal Reflux include hoarseness, chronic cough, trouble feeding, trouble gaining weight, and noisy breathing.
HOW IS LARYNGOPHARYNGEAL REFLUX DIAGNOSED?
A general physician would examine these symptoms and do a physical examination. Laryngoscopy along with some stool testing may also be done.
HOW IS LARYNGOPHARYNGEAL REFLUX TREATED?

• Smaller and more frequent feedings
• Keeping an infant in a vertical position for at least 30 minutes after feeding
• Medications such as H2 blockers or proton pump inhibitors, as directed by the pediatrician
