Brief Answer:
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

I have a client who is suffering from Barrett s Esophagus and am prescribing him dietary and lifestyle changes in order to reduce his GERD and improve his health overall. He is 275 lbs (125 kilos) and is about 80 lbs overweight. His diet is poor but he excersises regularly.
