Frequently Asked Questions
When first diagnosed, most people have never heard of Barrett's Oesophagus and will have many questions.
Our 00 General Information leaflet will provide an overview of the condition.
To answer some of the most frequently asked questions in layman's terms - written by a non-specialist, we have prepared a few fact sheets entitled "Burning Questions". Click on the links to read them. They should open in a new window.
These single sided A4 sheets in black and white, which may be easily photocopied, are also downloadable below.
(We gather the Word document format of these leaflets previously offered was not opening properly on some browsers. We have therefore replaced them with pdf files. If you particularly require them in Word format, so they may be edited to your needs (subject to our consent) please email email@example.com with your requirements.)
More downloadable support material may be found on the downloads page under the LINKS tab above.

A pdf file of "Cool Food", our popular cookbook for acid reflux sufferers is downloadable below.
Our chairman, Chris Robinson, has compiled an encyclopaedia about acid reflux, its complications and management. Called "Down With Acid", it may be downloaded as a pdf file "DWA book" below. N.B. it is a large file. The associated website www.DownWithAcid.org.uk carries the same content.
