Reflux disease – often called acid reflux – is a condition where stomach contents flow back into the oesophagus, causing heartburn, regurgitation, and other related symptoms.
We know that certain foods and beverages can trigger reflux, but there is still much to learn about how these triggers affect individuals.
That’s where Katie Boulton, our research scientist and PhD student, comes in.
If you live in the UK, have experienced several reflux and/or its related symptoms, and have previously purchased Peptest, we would love you to participate in Katie’s interview study. By sharing your experiences, you can contribute to a better understanding of this debilitating condition.
The aim of the study is to gain more information about which foods and beverages trigger gastric reflux and/or its related symptoms. A series of questions will be asked to gauge an understanding of what you experience regarding your symptoms and the severity and frequency of the reflux events.
The interview involves one phone call which will last approximately 45 minutes. If you finish the full interview, you will receive a £10 love2shop voucher.
To participate, you must be 18 years old or over, have experienced several reflux and/or its related symptoms, and live in the UK. You will also need to provide details of your previous Peptest order.
If you meet the above criteria and would like to participate, get in touch with Katie at email@example.com with your details. Katie will then arrange an interview to your preferred needs.
Participating in the study can not only help you gain a better understanding of your reflux triggers but also contribute to scientific research on the topic.
