OBJECTIVE: The Danish Study of Functional Disorders (DanFunD) approaches functional somatic disorders (FSD) with three delimitations: Five functional somatic syndromes (FSS), Bodily Distress Syndrome (BDS), and eight data-driven symptom profiles (SP). This paper presents each delimitation and discusses optimal approaches for further original research into FSD epidemiology.

METHODS: A total of 9656 adults from the general Danish population participated in this cross-sectional study. Case assignment of the three FSD delimitations was based on self-reported symptom questionnaires. Overlap of FSS, BDS, and SP and their association with poor self-perceived health were calculated as descriptive statistics and shown with Venn diagrams. Difference in self-perceived health between participants with severe FSD were compared with participants with no FSD and calculated as risk ratios with generalized linear models with binomial family and log link.

RESULTS: We found pronounced overlaps between any FSS, BDS, and the SP with multiple symptoms as well as for multi-organ BDS and the SP with all symptoms. Symptoms and syndromes related to clusters of musculoskeletal and general symptoms contributed particularly to poor health as did multi-organ BDS and categories of SP with multiple symptoms.

CONCLUSION: Each of the three delimitations has its strengths and weaknesses, and with this study, we offer a contribution to a more valid delimitation of FSD. Future research within DanFunD and other epidemiological studies may benefit from using more than just one delimitation for capturing the diverse nature of the FSD.
