Welcome to the monthly eNewsletter of the 
International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD)

Digestive Health Monthly - June 2017

Did you know that IFFGD offers a wide range of tools and resources to help you better understand and manage the symptoms of a functional gastrointestinal or motility disorder (FGIMD)?

While they are some of the most common gastrointestinal disorders seen by gastroenterologists, FGIMDs are complex conditions that require long-term care and are often misdiagnosed and mistreated. To help bridge the information gap, IFFGD provides a range of tools and topics aimed at giving patients and their families, healthcare providers, employers, and all others access to reliable information on all aspects of life with a chronic digestive condition.  

We invite you to check out some of IFFGD's tools and resources.
