What mystery condition of the throat cannot be felt, but only seen through endoscopy with biopsy? It is Barrett’s esophagus.


Help your patients better understand their risk by sharing the AGA Patient Education Section from the October 2018 issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, which helps explain the lifestyle changes they can make to lower their chances of developing the condition.


More information about Barrett’s esophagus can also be found in the AGA GI Patient Center, along with the full patient library with information on GI conditions.
