Laryngopharyngeal reflux is defined as the reflux of gastric content into larynx and pharynx. LPR is a condition that takes place in a person who has gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Acid made in the stomach travels up the esophagus in this condition. When that stomach acid gets up to the throat, it is called laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). LPR is caused by acid present in stomach which bubbles up into the throat as a result of (Gastroesophageal reflex disease) GERD. Fortunately, most cases do not require medical care. They can be managed with change in their lifestyle. People who have certain dietary habits, people who regularly wear tighter fitting or binding clothing, people who are obese, and people who are overstressed are more likely to have laryngopharyngeal reflux.
