The NICE dyspepsia guideline covers how pharmacists and GPs can help people with dyspepsia to manage their symptoms: the role of lifestyle advice; which treatments to offer; when further diagnostic tests may be appropriate; and how to manage symptoms in the long term.
These recommendations apply to primary care, that is, treatment by a GP, pharmacist or practice nurse. They do not apply to hospital care. This guideline does not address rare but serious causes of indigestion that require hospital care.
This guidance replaces TA7 Dyspepsia - proton pump inhibitors.
