Gastroesophageal events remain an important factor in the pathogenesis of patients with asthma with the reported prevalance ranging from 32-82%. The esophageal bronchial reflux plays a greater role in the pathophysiology of reflex associated cough. Gastroesophageal reflux either singly or in association with postnasal drip and or asthma is a thought to be a cause of chronic cough. People with asthma are twice as likely to have GERD as those people who don’t have asthma. GERD may worsen asthma symptoms, however asthma and some asthma medications may worsen GERD symptoms. Although these two disorders often occur together, the relationship between GERD and asthma remains unclear.
