iffgd resource

IFFGD, the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, is a place you can go to find help and support.

We provide a wide range of topics and tools dedicated to providing patients, families, health providers, employers, the public and anyone interested with access to information about chronic disorders of the digestive tract and ways to improve lives.

You'll find our own Publications Library (Brochures, Fact Sheets, and Articles), which is uniquely devoted to providing reliable information about gastrointestinal disorders and digestive health. Most of the information in our library is written by medical thought leaders from around the world. Most of the items in our Library are free.

Topics in our Library are addressed specifically for IFFGD readers and often not readily available through other sources. We work closely with the authors so that you can learn about causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of many disorders.

You'll find links to other groups, meetings, and institutions that work with GI and related disorders. Our Glossary will help you understand medical terms and concepts.
