Living with a functional GI or motility disorder is a challenge that can be very difficult for someone who doesn't have the condition to understand. However, increased education and awareness about the effects of these disorders are important steps to making progress in this field. We invite you all to take these steps with us to work for improved outcomes for those living with these conditions. With your help we can share these important messages with key stake holders and continue our work to support the digestive health community.  

Help the FDA learn more about the impact of FGIDs 

Are you someone whose life is impacted by a functional GI disorder like IBS, gastroparesis, GERD symptoms despite standard therapy, or chronic constipation? If so, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wants to hear from you. On May 11, 2015, the FDA is holding a public meeting on Functional GI Patient-Focused Drug Development. You can join them in person, via live meeting webcast, or by sharing comments through a public docket. Let your voice be heard by sharing your input on daily life with a functional GI disorder, as well as views on current available therapies. 

CVS Awareness Day: March 5, 2015
Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS) is a condition where a person experiences recurrent, severe episodes of nausea and vomiting. The symptoms tend to occur within a pattern, making awareness of the disorder key to helping find a diagnosis. March 5 is CVS Awareness Day. Learn more about the disorder in our commonly asked questions series.    

Gastroparesis Survey  
Calling All Gastroparesis Ambassadors!

Do you have gastroparesis? If so, you can help educate clinicians, researchers, and policy makers about the effects of this disorder and treatment needs by taking our confidential online survey. The more people who participate, the better the picture to share about the impact of gastroparesis!

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.
