Kids Get Acid Reflux, Too

(NAPSI)-Did you know that 7 million babies and children in the U.S. have acid reflux?

Although a proper diagnosis is sometimes missed, some clues include a burning sensation in the throat or chest, tummy aches, spitting up, a sensation of food coming up, poor appetite, trouble swallowing, night waking, ear infections, sinus problems, asthma, wheezing, excessive crying, colic, tooth decay and bad breath. Untreated reflux can cause serious health problems.

The nonprofit Web site has been providing information about acid reflux for 17 years. The site has now been translated into Spanish at Patients, clinics and doctors can download free booklets and brochures in English and Spanish. The sites are supported by public donations and grants.
