Summary:

Aim: to study the clinical course of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in patients with type 2 diabetes and evaluation of the parameters of the esophagus 24-hour pH-metry. Material and Methods. In the examination of patients with GERD, three groups of patients were selected for 50 people each. The first group includes patients with GERD with combined course of obesity and type 2 diabetes (mean age 54.6±2.73 year; 32 females and 18 males). The second group included patients with GERD against obesity (mean age 42.3±2.11 year; 30 females and 20 males). The control group consisted of patients with GERD without excess body weight and concomitant pathology (average age43.6±2.11 year; 29 females and 21 males). In addition to collecting complaints and anamnesis, the patients and the control group underwent a 24-hour pH-metric study of the esophagus according to a conventional method. Results. Patients suffering from GERD in the background of type 2 diabetes have a clinically asymptomatic or asymptomatic course; there is a significant increase in the daily pH-metry, indicating a more pronounced nature of the changes. Conclusion. Patients suffering from GERD in the background of type 2 diabetes require a comprehensive examination of the upper digestive tract to identify GERD, even if there are no complaints characteristic of the disease.
