Core Tip Among residents of S?o Paulo responding to our survey, approximately 21% reported that they experienced highly frequent symptoms consistent with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or dyspepsia at least once per month in the prior 3 mo. Prevalences of these symptoms were significantly (about 1.5- to 2.0-fold) higher among women than men but did not vary significantly as a function of advancing age. Despite frequent manifestations of GERD or dyspepsia, most (≥ 90%) respondents reported that they neither received prescription medications from physicians, nor took behavioral measures (e.g., dietary modifications), to manage symptoms.
