Re: Repeated pH testing?
I had my 24 hour impedance/pH reflux monitoring test yesterday. As I said before, this was my forth one.
The first 2 tests by my GI doc were traditional pH monitoring tests.
The 3rd test by my ENT was an upper pH probe by ResTech that measured gaseous acid coming up into my throat. That was 2 years ago.
This time, my GI doc had a new pH test. This one was called ZepHr. It actually measures both acid and non-acid reflux events. I researched it and it looks like it is more effective for identifying problems in people who have continued reflux symptoms despite acid suppression therapy.
I get the results in a couple weeks. I think it will be interesting to see how the results come out.
