These symptoms can originate from organic diseases, but most are functional in nature, which is defined as absence of an organic etiology. Dyspepsia is a common clinical symptom, incidence ranges from 20 to 50%. Approximately 1/3 patients reported interference with their normal daily activities and quality of life.
