LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux), often referred to by a number of other names including “silent reflux” and “reflux laryngitis”, is very common, uncomfortable, and can seriously interfere with one’s quality of life. It can trigger complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Its numerous symptoms commonly include constant throat clearing, a feeling of a lump in the throat, coughing, and hoarseness. There is widespread controversy in the medical community over the methods of diagnosis and management of LPR. The few books that include any extended description of LPR are written for health care professionals. This book is the first and only comprehensive source of detailed facts about the disorder written for the layperson. It is based on a comprehensive review of the medical literature. The author’s years of teaching and research enable him to translate technical jargon into clear language for the average reader. If you have been diagnosed as having LPR, or know someone who has been, this book will be a valuable aid in understanding all aspects of the disease. It will help the reader to become a better-informed and effective advocate for the best plan of care.
