What Do Surveys Tell Us?

Surveys are an important way to learn more about the experience of living with a digestive disorder. View results of surveys conducted by IFFGD and learn what investigators are finding as they search for answers to help those with digestive disorders.


IFFGD's 2020 IBS Patients' Illness Experience and Unmet Needs Survey

IFFGD is conducting a survey to asses the illness experience and unmet needs of IBS patients. This survey will take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. The variation in time is dependent on each participant due to certain responses triggering additional follow-up questions. Participants must be diagnosed with IBS by a healthcare provider.
