Nobody denies that there may be bias against female physicians in some setting but statement like this are BS:    Almost half of female interventional radiologists experience workplace sexual harassment,   Half is a lot to me.  Anyway, in the last 20 years OB-Gyn has changed from a boys club to a girls club specialty which seems totally fine to me (female patients prefer female physician). However, if the industry pushes for a 50-50 split in all fields, how come nobody bothers about the opposite?   Our society has become a sexist society with apparent and covert biases against men and it seems guys should "play it cool" in these situations.  What is next? Probably once the push for more female IR physicians, they will complain about discrepancy in pay.         10/17/2018 7:28:53 PMVoxel77 There is a strong push for diversity, equality and fairness with respect to gender, race, nationality and religion.   ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) frequently report symptoms like dyspepsia or/and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of symptom overlap on GERD symptom burden. We also investigate whether GERD overlapping dyspepsia or/and IBS would have different clinical and psychological features as compared with GERD alone. METHODS: A total of 2752 subjects were screened from a health check-up population. We compared the clinical and psychological factors among subjects with GERD alone and with overlap of two or all three diseases. All...

Authors: Chuah KH, Mahadeva S Abstract Culture forms an integral aspect of environmental factors which influences disease presentation and clinical outcomes in functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). In this review, the role of culture in FGIDs in the East is briefly explored with regards to symptom presentation and diagnostic issues, lifestyle and cultural habits, epidemiology, and healthcare seeking behavior. In both functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome, symptom presentation and disease sub-typing in Asians are known to differ from their Western counterparts, possibly relating to cultural diet...

Functional gastrointestinal disorder (FGID) is a group of diseases characterized by symptoms such as dyspepsia and intestinal motility changes that cannot be explained by the presence of organic abnormalities. Individuals with FGID experience periods of exacerbation and relapse of symptoms (Drossman, 2006a). FGID is a heterogeneous group of diseases that includes dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and constipation (Drossman, 2007). The most common FGID are functional dyspepsia (FD) (14.6%) and IBS (31.7%) (Nakajima et al., 2010).
