Functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID) include a number of separate idiopathic disorders which affect different parts of the gastrointestinal tract.[1]


The Rome process has helped to define the functional gastrointestinal disorders.[2] 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 gastrointestinal disorders have been found in 60-70% of both Canadian and American populations.[1]
