This month in Digestive Health Monthly you'll find an inspiring update from one member of the community who recently completed her third fundraiser for gastroparesis research, as well as an open discussion to help others figure out what to eat or not eat to affect their GI symptoms. The digestive health community can come together in many ways to make a real difference for one another. Thank you to all of you who have shown your support! 

Medications that can affect colonic function


Sometimes medications can be the cause of slowed colonic function, resulting in uncomfortable symptoms and constipation. It's important to talk to your pharmacist and your healthcare provider about the side effects of any prescriptions and other medications you are taking, and to educate yourself about certain drugs that can affect the workings of your lower digestive system. 

3rd Annual Walk for Gastroparesis & Digestive Health
Surrounded by people affected by gastroparesis, Stephanie hosted her annual event to bring much needed awareness to this condition and raise funds for research.  Read all about it in her blog!

Challenges of determining what to eat with a FGIMD


We hear from many people about the challenges of figuring out what to eat and what not to eat when you have a functional GI or motility disorder. This is a hard thing to do, and is often very overwhelming. Tell us about your experience in figuring out what does and doesn't work for you - maybe it will help someone else who doesn't know where to begin.      

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.
