Abstract
Background & Aims The Rome III criteria for functional dyspepsia have been changed to include 2 distinct syndromes: postprandial distress syndrome and epigastric pain syndrome. We investigated risk factors for functional dyspepsia among the functional dyspepsia subgroups defined by the Rome III criteria. Methods We performed a cross-sectional population-based study in a primary care setting (the Kalixanda study). A random sample (n = 2860) of the adult population from 2 northern Swedish municipalities (n = 21,610) was surveyed using a validated postal questionnaire to assess gastrointestinal symptoms (response rate, 74.2%; n=2122). A randomly selected subgroup (n = 1001) of responders was invited to undergo an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (participation rate, 73.3%) including biopsy specimen collection, Helicobacter pylori culture and serology, and symptom assessments. Results Of the 1001 subjects examined by endoscopy, 202 (20.2%; 95% confidence interval [CI], 17.7–22.7) were classified as having uninvestigated dyspepsia and 157 (15.7%; 95% CI, 13.4–18.0) as having functional dyspepsia. Major anxiety (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale score ≥11) was associated with uninvestigated dyspepsia (odds ratio [OR], 3.01; 95% CI, 1.39–6.54), as was obesity (body mass index ≥30 kg/m 2 ) (OR, 1.86; 95% CI, 1.15–3.01). Major anxiety was associated with functional dyspepsia and postprandial distress syndrome (OR of 2.56 [95% CI, 1.06–6.19] and 4.35 [95% CI, 1.81–10.46], respectively), as was use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (OR, 2.49 [95% CI, 1.29–4.78] and 2.75 [95% CI, 1.38–5.50], respectively). Depression was not associated with any dyspepsia group. Conclusions Anxiety but not depression is linked to uninvestigated dyspepsia, functional dyspepsia, and postprandial distress syndrome but not to epigastric pain syndrome.

Background & Aims: Functional abnormalities of the duodenum have been observed in non-ulcer dyspepsia. We aimed to identify whether eosinophils in the upper gastrointestinal tract are a biomarker for non-ulcer dyspepsia. Methods: A random sample of an adult Swedish population (n = 1001; mean age, 54 y; 51% female) underwent upper endoscopy. Non-ulcer dyspepsia cases (n = 51, Rome II) and randomly selected controls (n = 48) were identified. Two blinded independent observers assessed the gastroduo...

Background: Numerous studies examining the prevalence and natural history of dyspepsia in the general population have been conducted. However, few have reported the effect of quality of life on the development of dyspepsia. A 10-year longitudinal follow-up study examining the effect of quality of life on subsequent dyspepsia was performed. Methods: Individuals originally enrolled in a population-screening programme for Helicobacter pylori were contacted through a validated postal dyspepsia quest...

When it was first convened in 1990, the Rome committee sought to bring order to the largely amorphous world of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). Sixteen years later, in the third edition of the Rome criteria, the authors continue their quest to update and refine the classification of FGIDs. The first 6 chapters are dedicated to neurogastroenterology, pharmacology, the role of gender and culture, and the psychologic aspects of FGIDs. Although a basic understanding of these aspects of...

Summary Background Psychosocial factors are common among patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). Whether they affect the course of the disease remains unresolved. Aim To evaluate whether reassuring investigations of primary care patients with functional dyspepsia (FD) and organic dyspepsia (OD) influence gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and psychological factors, and to assess whether these changes are correlated. Methods Four hundred consecutive patients with dyspepsia were r...

Background: It remains controversial as to whether delayed gastric emptying in functional dyspepsia is associated with a specific symptom pattern, and it is unknown if gastric emptying in functional dyspepsia is a driver of impaired health related quality of life (HRQOL). We aimed to evaluate the relationship between functional dyspepsia symptoms, gastric emptying, and HRQOL. Methods: US patients (n = 864; mean age 44 years (range 18–82); 74% female) with functional dyspepsia, as defined by Rome...

Background Overweight and obese persons are at increased risk for gastroesophageal reflux disease. An association between body-mass index (BMI) — the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters — and symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease in persons of normal weight has not been demonstrated. Methods In 2000, we used a supplemental questionnaire to determine the frequency, severity, and duration of symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease among randomly selected par...

Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are integral to determining the success of foregut surgical interventions and psychoemotional factors have been hypothesized to impact the quality of life of patients. This study evaluates the correlation between PROs—specifically the Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease-Health-Related Quality of Life (GERD-HRQL) and the Laryngopharangeal Reflux Symptom Index (LPR-RSI)—and the recently validated Esophageal Hypervigilance Anxiety Scale (EHAS). We hypothesize that patie...

The study of the interaction between gastrointestinal (GI) function and psychological features is a complex and developing field. The bidirectional communication between the gut and the brain or gut-brain axis is considered as a pivotal player in the pathogenesis of the highly prevalent functional GI disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia (FD), which have been redefined as disorders of gut-brain interaction. However, the mechanisms through which changes in the gut...

BACKGROUND Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common gastrointestinal condition of poorly understood pathophysiology. While symptoms' overlap with other conditions may indicate common pathogenetic mechanisms, genetic predisposition is suspected but has not been adequately investigated. METHODS Using healthcare, questionnaire, and genetic data from three large population-based biobanks (UK Biobank, EGCUT, and MGI), we surveyed FD comorbidities, heritability, and genetic correlations across a wide spe...
