THINK YOU COULD BE AFFECTED?
1 KEEP A FOOD AND SYMPTOMS DIARY Note what you eat and how it affects you – be as specific as possible. 2 ELIMINATE OTHER DIAGNOSABLE CAUSES Chat with your GP or a dietitian. Coeliac disease, lactose intolerance, IBS and anxiety are common causes of gut symptoms. 3 EXCLUDE THE PROBLEM FOOD Swerve the suspect grub for two to four weeks to see if symptoms improve, then reintroduce it in small amounts to see if they return. 4 REPLACE ANY FOODS YOU EXCLUDE In the long term, find suitable alternatives to make sure you’re not depriving yourself of any vital nutrients.
