PPI's also known as proton pump inhibitors is a term used to refer to an assortment of drugs used to treat patients with gastric acid related problems such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), recurring stomach ulcers and gastritis.

Acid Reflux is the other generally used name of Gastro-esophageal reflux disease, also more often referred as GERD. The disease causes damage to the esophagus as the acidic contents from the stomach, containing acids and pepsin, pushes back to the esophagus since the sphincter becomes weak and can no-more prevent the contents from stomach from gushing back in esophagus. The acidic contents burn the esophagus and causes irritation in the esophagus. This is a chronic disease, which has life long repercussions. The treatment in this case can only help temporarily, i.e., as well as one continues with the medication.

Young adults often make it through their entire lives without ever being diagnosed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, even though they sense they are different from their peers. Parents fear talking to their children's doctor about it because they do not want their kids put on Ritalin or other strong medication. Then, later in life, these special needs adults suffer quietly because they fear stigmas from their classmates, coworkers, family members and friends. They don't want it to seem like something is "wrong" with them, so they internalize their emotions into depression, aggression or anxiety. Studies show that, with a little understanding and resources, ADHD adults can live meaningful and successful lives, despite their unique challenges.

At a young age children can sometimes tear through the house like a tornado, leaving a wake of destruction in their path. Especially young boys enjoy roughhousing, climbing on furniture and seemingly lose interest in their toys after only several minutes. For many parents these years are exhausting but time limited.

These are the facts but how many adults have never had at least one acne flare up in their adult life? Adults can develop acne well into adulthood- twenties, thirties and forties and beyond that even. No acne is pleasant but somehow adult acne seems worse as acne is typically thought of as an adolescence problem.
