Research on functional GI clustering

A recent article co-authored by Prof. Yang identifies latent symptom clusters in Asian patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). The study shows that the broad categorization used both in clinical practice and in the Rome system are still valid in the Asian societies. In addition,  a bowel symptom cluster with meal trigger and a gas cluster was found, which suggests a different emphasis in Asian populations.
