Tips & Daily Living with GI and Motility Disorders

Tips & Daily Living tips & daily living with GI and motility disorders

Functional gastrointestinal (GI) and motility disorders are long-term conditions that can impair quality of life and well-being.

Living with these conditions affect not only those who suffer but also many others, especially family members and friends.

It also touches on relationships in the classroom, in the workplace, or in social interactions.

Having a functional GI or motility disorder gives you something in common with literally millions of other people who live with their disorder every day.

There is no cure, yet, but there are ways to manage though not always simple or straightforward.

It takes skills and strength to deal with a challenging digestive condition. It means being a kind of active researcher, always looking for what does and does not help, hurt, and work best.

It is important to understand the condition and to advocate for better health.

If you or a friend or loved one has a functional GI or motility disorder, it is also important to understand that you are not alone with this diagnosis.
