Social media, newspapers, radio and TV stations can help spread the word about this complicated illness

More than 25 Countries will participate

MILWAUKEE, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — On March 5, 2017, CVSA USA/Canada will be joining forces with CVSA Organizations throughout the world to promote awareness of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS).  CVS is a debilitating condition characterized by episodes of severe nausea and persistent vomiting, interspersed with periods of wellness.  Estimates show CVS affects about 2 percent of school-aged children.  Many of these children are misdiagnosed, and many adults are undiagnosed or wrongly diagnosed as having eating disorders.  Treatment often requires hospitalization, IV fluids, a number of medications, and sedation.  At it’s worst the disease can result in serious complications like tearing of the esophagus and even death.  CVS affects people young and old, all over the world.  CVS often prevents individuals and their families from enjoying normal lives.

Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom, and the USA along with more than 20 other countries are joining together to make sure that there’s a global, cohesive effort to make sure this condition is understood.  By working together with a cohesive, worldwide message we can make sure people know this a more common syndrome than they might think.  By sharing information and resources with one another we can reach both sufferers and those who still may be undiagnosed.

Treatment of CVS in Adults

Developing Formal Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of CVS in Adults

When CVSA  was founded in 1993, it was thought that CVS was a condition of childhood and adolescence. Now we know that adults also suffer from CVS. There is CVS that begins in childhood and may extend into adulthood and adult onset CVS. As so many adults can attest, the condition causes untold suffering and disability, and often leads to family, school, and career upheaval.

With children’s guidelines already in place thanks to CVSA fundraising and our strong medical team, we are embarking on a partnership project that will help adult sufferers around the world. Partnering with the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS) www.motilitysociety.org, a strong medical committee of ten medical professionals has been formed to develop guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of CVS in adults. When completed, these guidelines will help doctors and ER personnel around the world understand how to diagnose and treat adult CVS patients more effectively.

Developing medical guidelines is a rigorous and expensive process, estimated to take two years. This is where you come in. CVSA is actively seeking financial sponsorship for this project through our membership and beyond. You can be part of this long overdue work of CVSA, the product of which will reach people still suffering in isolation with CVS. Please consider sending in a donation through our website.
