They found 8 distinct symptom groupings (constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome [IBS], abdominal pain, heartburn, nausea/vomiting, globus, and other upper gastrointestinal [GI] symptoms) and reported that these results were consistent with the Rome IV classification for separate upper and lower GI symptoms groups.

Abstract There is overwhelming evidence that functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) are associated with specific mechanisms that constitute important targets for personalized treatment. There are specific mechanisms in patients presenting with functional upper gastrointestinal symptoms (UGI Sx). Among patients with UGI Sx, approximately equal proportions (25%) of patients have delayed gastric emptying (GE), reduced gastric accommodation (GA), both impaired GE and GA, or neither, presumably due to increased gastric or duodenal sensitivity. Treatments targeted to the underlying pathophysiology utilize prokine...

Most of the patients with Crohn’s disease are treated conservatively, and a few may require surgical intervention, especially those presenting wi ...
