A 40-year-old female asked:
Does 24 hr ph impedance test identify bile in esophagus or just acid? if only acid, what if you have bile? i have bile in stomach. meds don't work.

Test: Typically the test only identifies acid or not by measuring Ph. Sounds like you have reflux. Improve your digestion and you can improve your reflux. Consider food allergy testing. This can often lead to positive dietary changes that improve digestion and improvement with reflux symptoms.
