The Thanksgiving season seems to get shorter and shorter each year. Holiday music and festive decorations come out sooner than before, and the day itself ends up sandwiched between mega-shopping sales. It's easy to forget to carve out a few moments in the madness to be thankful for things that we have, like the kindness and understanding of friends and family. Wherever you may be, please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your support of our mission and those we work so hard to serve. 
Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at IFFGD


GERD Awareness Week -
15 Tips to Manage Symptoms

GERD Awareness Week is November 24-30. In recognition of the 15th year of this special annual event, we've got 15 tips to help keep your symptoms at bay as you make your way through the Thanksgiving holiday.  

Focusing on FODMAPs

Several members of the DHA online community have asked about low FODMAP diets to manage IBS symptoms. Has anyone tried it? Are these plans successful? If you've tried the Low FODMAP approach, we invite you to share your experience with others at DHA.org. If you're unfamiliar with FODMAPs, here is some information to help you learn about the drug-free management tactic.  
Gulf War Illness Research Program Supports FGIDs

You can help make FGID research happen. Right now Congress has the chance to fund research into functional GI disorders through the Gulf War Illness Research Program. FGIDs are under study in the program because there is a connection between these conditions and deployment in the Gulf War Region. This research can benefit everyone - veterans, active military, and civilians. Tell Congress how important this research is to you.


Forward this to your Friends

About one in four people have a functional GI disorder. Do you know someone who could benefit from additional information about these conditions and would like to join the digestive health community?  Do you know more people that would like to advocate for research of functional GI and motility disorders? Forward them a copy of this enewsletter!

IFFGD, a nonprofit organization, and its grassroots arm, the Digestive Health Alliance (DHA), rely on donor support to fund research and to provide reliable information and support to those affected by functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders.
