Each step of the way, my son’s Pediatric Gastroenterologist assured me that he’d outgrow his silent GERD at 6 months, then 12 months, then 1.5 years. This reassurance was given despite our many failed attempts to wean him off of a very high dose of omeprazole.
She mentioned that “most” (she would not commit to a statistic) little ones outgrown anatomical GERD by 1.5 years and 98% outgrow it 2 yrs. As he turned 1.5 years old, and still wasn’t able to tolerate reducing one, of three, daily doses of ppi (proton pump inhibitor) by just 2-3 mgs, I started questioning the treatment he was receiving from his allopathic doctors.
