About Pediatric/Adolescent Gastroesophageal Reflux Association, Inc.
Children with many disabilities and rare disorders suffer from acid reflux in addition to their primary diagnosis. Clues are sour breath, spitting up, web burps, drooling, crying or other pain behavior, night waking, picky eating or food refusal, and characteristic tooth damage from stomach acid. The Pediatric/Adolescent Gastroesophageal Reflux Association, Inc., (PAGER) is a non-profit, parent-led organization dedicated to offering support and information to parents of children with gastroesophageal reflux and related disorders. Founded in 1992, PAGER disseminates information on pediatric gastroesophageal reflux and related disorders, provides support and education to individuals and families affected by GER, and promotes public awareness of the condition. PAGER publishes a newsletter containing stories from families, research updates, practical ideas for affected individuals and families, and a list of new members.
