Can GERD be diagnosed on endoscopy?

Q: Will the presence of GERD be known from the endoscopy test?

A:GERD can be seen on endoscopy only if there is oesophagitis (inflammation of the mucosal lining of the oesophagus). A person can have GERD without oesophagitis in which case endoscopy will be normal.
