Accurate Diagnosis of the problem is the opposite to random diet trials which sufferers may be experimenting with.
Diagnosis is essential because just improving symptoms through dietary restriction may just be a band-aid measure. Incomplete investigation can hide serious intestinal or other problems and these need excluding. Unnecessary restrictive diets also threaten nutritional status and overall health, definitely something we want to avoid.
Diagnosis will usually involve an Accredited Practising Dietitian specialising in digestive issues, your Doctor, and in many cases a referral to a Gastroenterologist (Gastrointestinal Specialist) whose specialist knowledge can determine essential tests and interpret the results.
Putting a finger on the exact digestive issue can be surprisingly difficult in many cases and needs a concerted plan to escape the treadmill and frustration of unstructured trial and error.
