TJL Enterprises Inc. Releases New Infographic That Illustrates Explosive Increase in Acid Blockers Prescribed to Infants
April 09, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsLong Beach, Calif., April 9, 2013 — Babies spit up and babies cry. Though medical experts consider this normal behavior, studies reveal an escalating percentage of infants are being prescribed reflux medications without the proper diagnostic testing.
TJL Enterprises' infographic reveals the dramatic rise in infant reflux and GERD diagnoses in recent years, as well as the risks and long-term health effects for babies who are taking prescription reflux drugs to treat "colic" and GERD.
"Some pediatricians are growing concerned that the 'epidemic' of infant GERD cases is actually due to over-diagnosis, especially since clinical trials show acid blockers work no better than a placebo, and can actually may have short term and long term side effects," said TJL Enterprises President Jacqueline Lawrence.
"For parents who may be thinking about reflux drugs for their baby, we are hoping to help them to understand the whole picture. This information took months to research and it wasn't widely available," Lawrence added.
