Dyspepsia is epigastric pain that does not have predominant reflux symptoms.1 Dyspepsia is common, affecting approximately 20% of the global population, and is frequently encountered in primary care.1 Given the prevalence of dyspepsia and the low prevalence of underlying serious disease, evidence-based guidelines could potentially better align evaluation and treatment interventions with disease morbidity.
