Dyspepsia - ECAB

Dyspepsia is a disorder which affects a large portion of the population. However, it is very important to differentiate between commonly presenting symptoms like gastroesophageal reflux disease, functional dyspepsia, and irritable bowel syndrome. Also various classifications and treatment protocols have been developed and revised to provide a rational platform for the clinicians. The ROME III classification has to a large extent given a direction to the clinicians to base their practice on, however, is a classification based on clinical trials and is really helpful in daily practice. In this issue we have tried to focus on the need for classification and approach to the patient with dyspepsia.
