Melika Kalantari MPharm(Hons), MSc

Summary: This study aimed to understand the experiences of people living with Achalasia, from the initial onset of symptoms to long‐term management. Achalasia is a rare motility disorder affecting the oesophagus, which is associated with a range of symptoms and different treatment strategies. Currently, little is known about people's experiences with achalasia and its management.

What is Achalasia?

Rapid weight-loss is fairly common whilst waiting for Achalasia treatment. If weight loss is a concern please visit our New Emergency Diet Page.

Achalasia Action strives to provide useful, up-to-date information on matters of concern to individuals with achalasia and other members of the achalasia community. The information we give should not be used as a means of diagnosis, determining treatment, nor replace the relationship between you, your doctors and other healthcare professionals. For diagnosis and treatment options, you are urged to consult your physician.
