Gastrointestinal Dysfunction Scale for Parkinson’s Disease (GIDS-PD)
Authors: Marta Camacho, MS, Julia C. Greenland, MRes MRCP, Caroline H. Williams-Gray, MRCP PhD
The GIDS-PD is a novel, disease-specific self-report questionnaire to quantitatively assess features of gastrointestinal dysfunction (GID) symptoms in patients with PD. GID is an important non-motor feature of PD and there is increasing evidence that it may play a key role in the disease process. This Likert self-report scale consists of 12 items across 3 domains: Constipation, Bowel irritability, and Upper GI symptoms. The GIDS-PD is not a diagnostic tool, but rather a psychometric tool to assess GID severity over the past 6 months as a Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) measure.
