I spoke to a private clinic today about possibly doing a new 24hr Ph test. I was asked if I had had an Impedence test and I said I just had the 24hr test.
They said it would be better to get an Impedence test done as it gives a more accurate picture of what's going on.

Does anyone know the difference between the 24hrPH test and a 24hr Impedence one? Is there any?

IIRC the impedence test shows bile and acid along with having sensors higher up as well as at the bottom.

Take care,

Hi Bill,

Thank you for making that clear. So it may well be worth my while doing this test as most of my symptoms are higher up i.e sore burning throat.
