    Sammanfattning : BackgroundGastrointestinal (GI) symptoms are commonly reported in a normal population. Mostly, the symptoms are of benign cause but occasionally the symptoms can be signs of a more harmful disease. In general, it is difficult to distinguish whether the reported symptoms are caused by a benign (functional) or organic (i.e. LÄS MER
