Digestive disorders affect millions of people of all ages – from children and teens to young and mature adults. Whether you or someone you know suffers from a chronic digestive disorder, you know the affects the symptoms can have on daily life. Symptoms can range from mild to debilitating. The social and economic consequences are immense; the loss of human potential immeasurable.
