Dear Colleagues,

For some time the public have been asking us about the relationship between what we eat and the subsequent development of gastrointestinal symptoms. One good example of this is coeliac disease, which affects 1% of the population with the damage occurring in the gut as a result of eating gluten, a protein present in the wheat. More recently a new entity is emerging termed non-coeliac gluten sensitivity which may affect more than 10% of the population.

Food intolerances are reported to be very common affecting up to 40% of individuals who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) type symptoms. A further exciting development is the dietary interventions studies showing benefit to patients with IBS when trying a FODMAP (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols) diet, gluten free diet or probiotics. However one area of confusion for both clinicians and the public alike are the entities of Food Allergy and Food Intolerance.....

World Digestive Health Week 2015 " HEARTBURN

Iranian Association of Gastroenterology and Hepatology celebrate World Digestive Health Week from 22 up to 29 May, 2015 (Khordad 1-8, 1394).

Dear Colleagues,

Heartburn has been identified, in numerous high-impact guidelines, as one of the cardinal symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Indeed, for practical purposes, heartburn, with or without regurgitation, is considered to be diagnostic of GERD, at least as a basis for initial management.

The prevalence of GERD is increasing worldwide although there are marked differences in the reported prevalence, ranging from 2.5% to 6.6% in Eastern Asia up to 13.8% to 25.8% in North America. The reason for the increasing prevalence of GERD is not entirely clear, but it appears to be correlated with the increasing prevalence of obesity in many countries and, perhaps, to other dietary factors. GERD is associated with a significant impact on health-related quality of life and reduction in personal and work-related productivity; it is, also, associated with a greater risk of Barrett’s esophagus, a pre-malignant condition that may progress to esophageal adenocarcinoma. Fortunately, GERD can, generally, be treated safely and effectively with acid suppression medications whilst surgical anti-reflux therapy is, also, effective. However, the investigation and treatment of GERD can be costly and the management of GERD patients has to be optimized, in many jurisdictions, in the context of the many other pressures on the healthcare system.


Available WGO Global Guidelines! In support of this year's campaign, WGO will be releasing a Global Guideline on GERD. Further information will be made available soon! Stay tuned! To access the Global Guideline on Common GI Symptoms, please visit the Guidelines and Cascades page!

Basing on UNICEF/WHO (2009) „Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year – is due to diarrhea. Today, only 39 per cent of children with diarrhea in developing countries receive the recommended treatment, and limited trend data suggest that there has been little progress since 2000.“ Enteric infections, however, are not only occurring only in developing countries. In the United States it is estimated that children less than 5 years old will have 2.2 episodes of diarrhea per year, in those above the age of 16 years this rate is still 1.7. German sources describe that one third of the total population will have diarrhea at least once annually. There were some 16,000 deaths from diarrhea recorded in Europe in 2002. Lastly, travelers originating in industrialized countries must expect an incidence rate of travelers’ diarrhea exceeding 20%, sometimes even exceeding 50%, during a two weeks’ stay in a developing country.

The objective of the WDHD 2011 is to focus attention on the prevention and management of diarrheal diseases to improve child survival in developing countries and also to reduce morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world. Special attention will be given to at risk travelers. Obviously the strategies will vary in different parts of the world.

For instance clean water, clean food and clean environment initiatives will play a greater role in low resource countries. Improvement of the infrastructure will reduce the risk of children developing the disease in the first place. The World Gastroenterology Organisation selection of the topic for the WDHD is timely: On July 28, 2010 the United Nations General Assembly declared access to clean water and sanitation a human right. Also vaccines will increasingly play a role in prevention. Still, reducing deaths “depends largely on delivering life-saving treatment of low-osmolarity oral rehydration salts and zinc tablets” (UNICEF/WHO, 2009).

While sanitation is not perfect everywhere in industrialized countries, even greater emphasis will be given here on the option of diarrheal prevention by vaccines, sometimes also by medication. Therapeutic guidelines will be propagated, and appropriate travel kits will be recommended to those planning to visit high-risk countries.

Thus, gastroenterologists worldwide as ‘Global Guardians of Digestive Health’ are expected to greatly contribute in the global fight against enteric infections on May 29 and throughout this year.

"Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a group of inflammatory conditions of the colon and small intestine. The two main types of IBD are Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease. IBD affects young people and its peak age of onset is typically the third decade, during a time while young adults are finishing their education, starting a family, or building a career. Some patients suffer from progressive courses while for others the course is more waxing and waning. Hospitalization and surgery are often necessary and can greatly impact on quality of life. However, with individually tailored medical and surgical therapy patients with IBD can lead full and productive lives and many can have their disease in long lasting remission. While IBD was predominately a disease of developed countries from the middle of the twentieth century, in recent years there have been rising incidence rates in developing countries. During 2010 WGO wishes to underscore the emergence and complexities of IBD to doctors in developed and developing countries. Our focus is on optimizing diagnostic approaches and maximizing patient care to enhance the quality of life of IBD patients and to help inform their health care providers worldwide."

It is now recognized that irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a truly global problem reportedly affecting millions of individuals (ca. 1 in 10) worldwide and exerting a significant influence on the quality of life both for the many reported and unreported (ca. 5 in 10) cases. Yet, despite volumes of research highlighting the prevalence and impact of IBS worldwide, IBS remains poorly understood by the medical community and the general public alike.

WGO recognises therefore, that there exists a very significant "knowledge gap" with regard to all aspects of IBS and there is a real unmet need to bring the very latest information on IBS to medical practitioners, other health care workers and the general public. For this reason, WGO, in partnership with industry sponsors, focused the attention of the global gastroenterology community on May 29, 2009 and throughout 2009 on IBS.

The response from both national societies and industry partners to World Digestive Health Day 2009 surpassed all expectations. A showcase of the World Digestive Health Day 2009 Success Stories has now been published. WGO invites everyone to visit the updated events calendar and explore the spectacular success of World Digestive Health Day 2009.
