Functional gastrointestinal disorder
|Classification and external resources|
The Rome process has helped to define the functional gastrointestinal disorders. Successively, the Rome I, Rome II and the Rome III meetings have proposed a consensual classification system and terminology, as recommended by the Rome Coordinating Committee.
- Functional esophageal disorders
- Functional colonic disease. In medicine, the term functional colonic disease (or functional bowel disorder) refers to a group of bowel disorders which are characterised by chronic abdominal complaints without a structural or biochemical cause that could explain symptoms.
- Functional dyspepsia
- Non-cardiac chest pain (NCCP)
- Chronic functional abdominal pain (CFAP)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Functional gastrointestinal disorders have been found in 60-70% of both Canadian and America populations.
