The Rome IV criterion for a diagnosis of NUD is chronic or recurrent epigastric pain within the last 3 months and an onset of symptoms at least 6 months prior to presentation. The term functional Dyspepsia and idiopathic dyspepsia are often used as well. Symptoms include ulcer-like dyspepsia; gastroparetic-like (nausea, early satiety, and post-prandial pain), and undifferentiated. Pathogenesis of NUD is not completely known yet. Several mechanisms have been proposed to be responsible for these symptoms. Although there is strong evidence of an association between H. pylori infection and NUD, Celiac Disease and NUD. Being a tropical country, the prevalence of infections is parasitic cause. Dyspepsia is likely to be more in India. However, the present data from India as scares in literature. Hence the present study was planned to decipher the clinical profile, prevalence of H. pylori, IgA tTG, spectrum of duodenal biopsy abnormalities in NUD patients.
