Abstract

Background. Although the exact pathophysiology of functional gastrointestinal diseases remains unclear, numerous etiologies have been blamed, including visceral hypersensitivity, gastrointestinal motility disorders, psychological factors, intestinal mucosal inflammation, intestinal microbiota, and post-infectious syndromes. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate pancreatic insufficient patients diagnosed withfiinctional abdominal pain-not otherwise specified (FAP-NOS) according to Rome IV criteria.
