The article discusses the concept of functional dyspepsia (FD). It explores the meanings and symptoms in diagnosing dyspepsia and its difference from gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) based from several studies. It also analyzes the common definition of dyspepsia as group of symptoms when food digestion was disordered. It cites that it remains a lack of global consensus in understanding the symptoms that comprise FD despite the Rome working team reports.
