The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) is a non-profit, educational and research organization dedicated to addressing the issues affecting individuals with functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. These disorders include irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), incontinence, diarrhea, constipation, pelvic floor pain, anorectal pain, abdominal bloating or pain, esophageal disorders, gastroduodenal disorders, and biliary disorders. Founded in 1990, IFFGD offers support to affected individuals and their families. The foundation also works with the medical, healthcare, and research communities to increase awareness of these disorders and to promote research efforts to improve diagnosis and treatment. Educational materials include a quarterly newsletter entitled "Digestive Health Matters: Participate in Your Health" and several fact sheets on various gastrointestinal disorders and their treatment alternatives. IFFGD also distributes a "Personal Daily Diary" that is designed to help individuals with gastrointestinal disorders gain a more complete understanding of their condition through the regular recording of important details.
