Esophageal Ph test.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing HeatlcareMagic for your query.

The esophageal pH test is an outpatient procedure performed to measure the pH or amount of acid that flows into the esophagus from the stomach during a 24-hour period.So as per your query its the best test to see the amount of acid thet is regurgitating.

Thanks
