Functional abdominal disorders are predominantly diagnosed on the basis of a thorough history and clinical examination. It is a challenge to clinicians to define the adequate place of imaging studies in order to rule out relevant organic disease. In functional dyspepsia, oesphago-gastroduodensoscopy and abdominal ultrasound are widely used as first line studies.

BACKGROUND: IBS is a complex disorder that encompasses a wide profile of symptoms. The symptoms of chronic constipation frequently resemble those of constipation-predominant IBS. Current drug treatments for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are of limited value. Many target specific symptoms only. Tegaserod, a 5HT(4) partial agonist, represents a novel mechanism of action in the treatment of IBS and chronic constipation.

Current and Emerging Therapies for Functional Dyspepsia

by R. J. Saad; W. D. Chey, Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics

Summary. Functional dyspepsia represents a heterogeneous group of gastrointestinal disorders marked by the presence of upper abdominal pain or discomfort. Although its precise definition has evolved over the last several decades, this disorder remains shrouded in controversy. The symptoms of functional dyspepsia may overlap with those of other functional bowel disorders including irritable bowel syndrome and non-erosive reflux disease.

Abdominal Pain

The precise location of pain is one of the main reasons for proper diagnosis of patient’s conditions. The abdominal cavity has several organs; one on top the other in the lower abdomen, on the right or left side, so knowing their location can help to pre-determine what hurts.

Also, the nature of the pain may indicate the cause. Knowing characteristics of various diseases, physician concludes what could be the reason for dull, circular, acute pain, which started suddenly (such as gastric ulcer rapture of abdominal aorta,) or pain which increase gradually and slowly. The pain may have other specific characteristics, for example, it may radiate into the right shoulder suggesting bile stones, pain reaching the flank as spikes in the kidney or circular as chronic pancreatitis.

Brief description of the digestive system

Brief description of the digestive system

Digestive system consists of several organs responsible for the break down and elimination of chemical components of foods: Stomach, Pancreas, Liver, Gallbladder, Small Intestine, and Large Intestine.


Symptoms such as bloating, gas, chronic constipation, and diarrhea, are mostly attributed to poor digestion.

IBS (IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME), is a functional disorder characterized by abdominal pain and alteration in bowel habits. "Up to 20% of the adult population has symptoms compatible with the diagnosis, but most never seek medical attention. It is a common problem presenting to both the gastroenterologist and the primary physician." (Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment, 37th Edition, chapter 14, p602).

Some of the reasons causing digestive disorders are:

Chronic Constipation

Activity of the gastrointestinal tracts can vary widely. Established criteria identify chronic constipation when infrequent bowel movements are three times or fewer per week. However, people who eliminate stool no more than 3 times a week - suffer from chronic constipation. Those, who have to use a lot of energy to evacuate, should start to exercise and take natural supplements which regulate movement without damaging the flora.

Constipation is one of the most common complaints of many people, especially the elderly. Problems associated with emptying the colon are encountered by large percentage of people. In most cases, it is due to improper lifestyle and health conditions.
