  1. DDW Study Sees Better Outcomes With Multidisciplinary Approach to Functional GI Disorders Many patients say their functional gastrointestinal disorders improve with a combination of adjunctive strategies, including dietary changes and biofeedback. Now they have some rigorous evidence to back up those beliefs. A prospective randomized trial found that a multidisciplinary approach “was superior for global symptoms, improvement in specific functional symptoms, psychological state, quality of life, and cost” to care from a gastroenterologist alone, said Chamara Basnayake, MBBS, a consult
