Medical News / Directly from DDW 2023: Meal-Related Gastrointestinal Symptoms Common in Patients With Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction

In an international cohort, patients with disorders of the gut-brain interaction (DGBI) experienced meal-related symptoms in all anatomical regions of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, according to data presented at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2023.1 Investigators noted that the nature of these symptoms should be considered for DGBI diagnostic criteria in the future and evaluating meal association of DGBI symptoms may be an important factor to individualize treatment in clinical practice. “Meal-related symptoms in patients with DGBI are an important medical challenge,” wrote Esther Colomier, PhD Student, a joint PhD researcher at KU Leuven, Belgium, and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and colleagues. “To examine the role of meal intake in symptom generation, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of GI symptoms, how often they are meal-related, and how soon after meal intake symptoms arise in an international DGBI cohort.” Source: MDMag.
