Thank you for your support of IFFGD and the digestive health community. It is increasingly important for us all to continue to raise awareness and support research into chronic digestive disorders. With the reintroduction of The Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act, we can all work together to bring information about these conditions to the forefront to help our community as they live each day with their symptoms. 
FGIMD Research Enhancement Act Reintroduced in the House!
Great News! The Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act (HR 2311)  has been reintroduced in the 114th Congress! Representative F. James Sensenbrenner has once again introduced the bill in the House of Representatives. Help make this important piece of legislation a reality by asking your Congressional Representative to cosponsor it today!

About Stomach Emptying Tests 

An accurate diagnosis is key to the best possible treatment for a functional GI or motility disorder. For gastroparesis, a physician may call for a stomach emptying test after a review of symptoms, history, and an initial exam in order to confirm a diagnosis. Learn more about stomach emptying tests so that you can be prepared when talking to your healthcare provider. 

IFFGD Statement at the FDA Meeting
Earlier this month we presented a statement at the Food and Drug Administration's Patient Perspective Initiative public meeting on functional GI disorders. We hope that many of you were able to take part in the meeting, either in person or online, but if you weren't able to join, the FDA still wants to hear from you. You can provide your comments on current treatments and symptom experiences with chronic digestive conditions. Read the comments provided by IFFGD and share your own views by following the link below.

"I don't let this condition stop me from living my life..."

Just as people's digestive symptoms differ, their strategies for managing their symptoms are not the same. For Shirley, who recently shared her experiences with 20 years of IBS symptoms on DHA.org, she manages her symptoms by learning what her food triggers are and always being prepared for the unexpected. She also arms herself with a positive attitude and doesn't let her IBS run her life. 
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.
