Globally there are about 15-40% people with dyspepsia. Every year a nuisance it's
about 25% of the world's population. Prevalence dyspepsia in Asia ranges from 8-30%.
Modern lifestyle (fatty foods, cigarettes, NSAIDs, less physical activity) may contribute.
Dyspepsia is a complex disorder, referring to the collection of symptoms such as painful
or uncomfortable sensations in the upper abdomen, burning, nausea, vomiting, full and
bloated. A variety of mechanisms may underlie cover interference intestinal motility,
hypersensitivity, infection, or psychosocial factors. Although not fatal, this disorder can
degrade the quality of life and become a social burden of society.

The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) states that the term 'dyspepsia' is
not a diagnosis, but rather a collection of symptoms that lead to upper gastrointestinal
diseases / disorders. The definition of dyspepsia is upper gastrointestinal tract infections
include pain or discomfort in the gastro-duodenal (epigastric) area, burning, fullness, full
satiation, nausea or vomiting.

Dyspepsia is classified into two, organic (structural) and functional (nonorganic).
In organic dyspepsia there is an underlying cause, such as peptic ulcer disease (PUD),
GERD (GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease), cancer, alcohol use or chronic drugs. Non-
organic (functional) is characterized by pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen chronic
or recurrent, with no abnormalities on physical examination and endoscopy.

It is estimated that about 15-40% of the world's population have complaints of
chronic or recurrent dyspepsia; half of which is organic (structural) dyspepsia. The
highest etiology of organic dyspepsia is gastric / duodenal peptic ulcer, gastroesophageal
reflux disease, and gastric cancer. However, most of the etiology of dyspepsia is
unknown (functional).

Idiopathic / functional dyspepsia (50-70%)
Peptic ulcer (10%)
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) (5-20%)
Gastric cancer (2%)
Helicobacter pylori infection
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

Dietary factors (burnt food, fast food, fatty, spicy, coffee, tea) and lifestyle (smoking,
alcohol, NSAID / aspirin drugs, lack of exercise) are believed to contribute to dyspepsia.
Cigarettes are thought to decrease the protective effect of gastric mucosa, while alcohol
and anti-inflammatory drugs play a role in increasing stomach acid production.
Study in India in people with dyspepsia with an average age of 20 years,
significantly related to lifestyle factors such as the consumption of fatty foods, cigarettes,
NSAIDs, and low physical activity. Studies in Arabic analyzed the relationship between
lifestyle and diet in dyspepsia. Approximately 77 (43.8%) of 176 students with a mean
age of 20 years suffered from dyspepsia, and there was a significant correlation of
dyspepsia with smoking, sleep deprivation, stress, academic factors (p <0.05), while
alcohol, fast food, salty food, spicy food, coffee, and the level of physical activity has no
significant relationship with dyspepsia.
Risk factors for organic dyspepsia include age> 50 years, family history of gastric cancer,
history of peptic ulcer, treatment failure, history of gastrointestinal bleeding, anemia,
weight loss, persistent vomiting, changes in bowel habits, high or long-term use of
NSAIDs , and alcohol consumption. Study in Taiwan in 2,062 people with Chinese
dyspepsia obtained normal endoscopic results of 1174 (56.9%), gastritis 215 (10.4%),
gastric ulcer 254 (12.3%), duodenal ulcer 194 (9, 4%), reflux esophagitis as much as 182
(8.8%), and esophageal / gastric cancer as much as 43 (2.1%). Organic dyspepsia patients
in the study tended to be found at older age, more likely to be infected with H. pylori, and
drug users (aspirin, NSAIDs) than functional dyspepsia.

Characteristics of dyspepsia generally include full post-eating, full satiety, burning in the
epigastrium (associated with GERD), epigastric pain, non-cardiac chest pain, and less
specific symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, bloating, belching, abdominal distension.
Functional dyspepsia patients usually experience intermittent symptoms in the long-term
interspersed with remission periods.

Distinguishing organic dyspepsia by function requires an accurate history and physical

examination. Investigations such as blood tests, endoscopy, and radiology are required in
certain cases. Indication of endoscopy when there are symptoms or alarm signs. Age> 55
years is one indication due to age of onset of stomach cancer in Southeast Asian
countries. When in upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and hepatobiliary ultrasound (if
indicated) there is no organic lesion called functional dyspepsia. H. pylori infection
detection may use non-invasive methods such as urea breath test, stool antigen, or
Symptoms and alarm signs
 Age> 55 years
 Gastrointestinal haemorrhage (hematemesis, melena)
 Anemia
 Quickly full / full
 Dysphagia (difficult to swallow) or odinofagia (painful swallowing)
 Weight loss (> 10% normal weight)
 Vomiting over and over
 Lymphadenopathy
 Family history of stomach / esophageal cancer
 Palpable abdominal mass
According to Rome III Criteria, the definition of functional dyspepsia is the presence of
symptoms that are thought to originate in the upper gastrointestinal tract, in the absence
of organic, systemic, or metabolic diseases.
* Diagnostic criteria should include
One or more of the following:
 a disruptive post-meal feeling
 fast satiety
 epigastric pain
 burning sensation in the epigastrium
There is no evidence of structural disease (from endoscopy) that may explain the
(*) Criteria are met the last 3 months with atset at least 6 months before diagnosis

Initially functional dyspepsia is divided into 3 types of dominant symptoms, namely

'ulcer-like', 'reflux-like', and 'dysmotility-like'. Considering more symptoms induced by
food consumption (± 80%), it is currently divided into two subtypes: Epigastric Pain
Syndrome (epigastric pain or burning) and Postprandial Distress Syndrome (full post-
meal and full satiety).

Functional dyspepsia criteria of epigastric pain type.

The diagnosis should include all of the following:
 Pain / burn in epigastrium, minimal intensity, at least once a week
 Pain should not be generalized to the abdominal or chest area, or in other
abdominal areas.
 Pain is not lost with bowel movements or flatus
 Pain does not meet the criteria of gallbladder pain or the Oddi sphincter.

Functional dyspepsia criteria of postprandial distress type.

One of:
 Full taste of post-meal in regular portions, several times a week
 Quickly satied so that the usual portion of food reduced, several times a week
Functional dyspepsia therapy needs to be differentiated for the subtype of pain or
postprandial distress. In the epigastric pain type, first-line therapy aims to suppress
stomach acid (H2-blocker, PPI). In the postprandial type of distress, the first line with
prokinetics, such as metoclopramide / domperidone (dopamine antagonists), acotiamide
(acetylcholinesterase inhibitors), cisapride, tegaserod, buspiron. If the first line fails, PPI
may be used for postprandial and prokinetic types of pain for the type of pain. The
combination of gastric acid and prokinetic acid is useful in some patients. There is no
effective therapy for all patients; various therapies may be used sequentially or in
In cases not responding to these drugs, antidepressants are used. Tricyclic
antidepressants (amitriptyline 50 mg / day, nortriptyline 10 mg / day, imipramin 50 mg /
day) for 8-12 weeks are effective for functional dyspepsia therapy, SSRI or SNRI no
more effective than placebo. Although still controversial, H. pylori can be tested in cases
of functional dyspepsia since the infection is generally asymptomatic. Therapy of
psychological conditions such as anxiety or depression may be helpful in cases of
difficult / resistant dyspepsia. Psychological therapy, acupuncture, herbal supplements,
psychological probiotics in functional dyspepsia have not been proven. Patient education
is important to avoid precipitating factors such as reducing stress / anxiety, start eating
fewer regular meals and avoid triggering foods.
GERD therapy aims to reduce the amount of stomach acid that enters the distal
esophagus by neutralizing gastric acid, reducing production, and increasing gastric
emptying into the duodenum, and relieving discomfort from burning. The preferred
therapy, ie PPI or H2-blocker, may be supported by administration of antacids, 5-HT4
agonists, or prostaglandin analogues (sucralfat, misoprostol). Patient education to reduce
dyspepsia (spicy, fatty acid, coffee, and alcohol) triggers eating a small portion of
frequent frequent frequencies, indirectly lying down after meals, upper body elevation
during sleep and weight loss is recommended.
H. pylori ulcer therapy aims to eradicate germs and cure ulcers, through 3
regimens, namely: PPI (omeprazole 2x20-40 mg) or H2-blocker (co-ranitidine 2x150 mg
or 300 mg before bed), plus the following two antibiotics: clarithomycin 2x500 mg, 2x1 g
amoxicillin, or metronidazole 2x400-500 mg for 7-14 days. If allergic to penicillin, given
4 kinds of therapy, namely: PPI (omeprazole 2x20-40 mg), bismuth 4x120 mg,
metronidazole 4x250 mg, and tetracycline 4x500 mg for 10-14 days. H. pylori
eradication needs to be verified by non-invasive tests (urea breath test, stool antigen test)
4 weeks after completion of therapy.
NSAID-related peptic ulcer therapy is by discontinuing the use of NSAIDs or
replacing with selective COX-2 antagonist inhibitors. Treatment with PPIs is quite
effective in NSAID-related ulcers (superior to H2-blockers). Continuous 72-hour PPI
infusion is recommended in cases of severe peptic ulcer bleeding, to maintain gastric pH>
The pathogenesis of multifactorial functional dyspepsia. Several pharmacologic
treatments are recommended according to pathogenesis, namely: (1) gastric acid
suppression controls gastric hypersentivity, (2) prokinetics improves gastric motility
disorders, (3) antidepressants overcomes psychological disorders, accelerates gastric
emptying and manipulates pain perception. The efficacy of acid suppressant drugs (H2-
blockers, PPIs) in functional dyspepsia is moderate. Antacids, bismuths, and sucralfates
are not effective in functional dyspepsia. Prokinetics are more effective than placebo.

Most patients with chronic and recurrent functional dyspepsia, with asymptomatic
periods followed by episodes of relapse. Based on population study of functional
dyspepsia patients, 15-20% had persistent symptoms, 50% had symptom improvement,
and 30-35% had fluctuating symptoms. Although functional dyspepsia is chronic and
affects the quality of life, it is not proven to decrease life expectancy.

Dyspepsia many experienced and disrupt the quality of life of patients. Classification
based on the presence or absence of organic lesions from physical and supporting
examinations (laboratory, endoscopy). Consideration of possible non-gastrointestinal
causes should be considered. Recommended avoidance of risk factors for triggers and
pharmacological therapy.
