Functional GI disorders, for the most part, lack structural or biochemical markers that identify the disorders. Thus, they have long been difficult for physicians to understand, diagnose, and treat.
The prevalence of fecal incontinence has long been underestimated and that population underserved. As a part of our mission of serving patients, IFFGD also conducts education initiatives for physicians and caregivers of these specialized GI topics.
