Dyspepsia: Management of dyspepsia in adults in primary care

NICE guidelines [CG17] Published date:

Consultation on review proposal with stakeholders: 01 June 2011 - 14 June 2011

Review decision date: July 2011

Review decision: 

The guideline should be updated at this time.

Following the recent review recommendation, an update of this guideline is currently in the process of being scheduled into the work programme.  Details of any update will be available on the guidelines in development webpage.

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.
