Gut Feelings is part of the IID2 Study (the Second Study of Infectious Intestinal Disease in the community) which took place in general practices across the UK.
This was a national study about infectious intestinal disease, also known as diarrhoea and vomiting (D&V), gastroenteritis, food poisoning or gastric flu. We wanted to find out exactly how many people have IID during a year, how many people go to their doctor when they have symptoms and what germs are causing the symptoms.
