I know this is an old thread but i thought i'd jump on with some info about
peptest and its acceptance with medical professionals.
You can see testimonials and case studies from physicians and healthcare professionals who use Peptest on their website - www.peptest.co.uk/people/
and RD Biomed can always recommend clinicians who are familiar with the test.
Reflux and especially extra oesophageal reflux and LPR has received wide spread attention over the past 20 years. The acceptance of reflux causing symptoms other that heartburn and regurgitation such as chronic cough, sore throat, throat clearing, hoarseness, voice disorders, swallowing disorders, asthma, and respiratory distress is well accepted in the USA, EU and in many countries.
In the UK there are still some gastroenterologists and ENTs who have been slow to learn and accept all the new information available in the clinical and scientific literature. This also means that there are many GPs who have not been exposed to the new literature and also do not have the experience of dealing with patients with extra oesophageal reflux and LPR. As knowledge spreads the pattern of acceptance of these conditions and the symptom association in particular with LPR are becoming recognised by physicians and the UK is fast catching up in this area
