IBD is a chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.
Acid reflux occurs when the acidic contents of the stomach reflux up into the esophagus, causing burning in the chest or throat. If you have chronic acid reflux, you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Barrett’s esophagus is common in people with GERD and occurs when there are abnormal cells lining the lower part of your esophagus.
