Racial differences in epidemiology of irritable bowel syndrome alone, un-investigated dyspepsia alone, and "overlap syndrome" among african americans compared to Caucasians: a population-based study



Racial differences in epidemiology of irritable bowel syndrome alone, un-investigated dyspepsia alone, and "overlap syndrome" among african americans compared to Caucasians: a population-based study



Digestive Diseases and Sciences 51(1): 218-226



There is A paucity of data on racial differences in epidemiology of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) alone and uninvestigated dyspepsia (UD) alone compared to "overlap syndrome" (OS). We conducted a random survey (n=990). Subjects completed a questionnaire which included Rome II criteria for IBS and functional dyspepsia (FD). Among African Americans, the prevalence of IBS alone, UD alone, and OS was 0.6%, 17%, and 7.3%, respectively. It was 0%, 13%, and 13% among Caucasian Americans.
