Why Would My Gastroenterologist Decide to Preform a 24 Hour pH Monitoring Test?
The ambulatory pH monitoring study is done to determine if acid is present in the esophagus for an abnormal amount of time and whether the occurrence of a specific symptom is associated with a period of acid reflux. This relationship is valuable in determining the source and the possible treatment of your symptoms. At times this test is performed to determine if a patient has gastroesophageal reflux disease. At Blair Gastroenterology Associates, we specialize in the education, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and disorders of the digestive system.
