Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose adverse reaction to delayed meals, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "adverse reaction to delayed meals" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Dehydration
  • Hypoglycemia

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
hiatal hernia
intolerance of sugars
temple-based headaches
being easily irritated
frequent difficulty falling asleep
numb/burning/tingling extremities
low energy/stamina
increased emotional instability
high alcohol consumption
frequent bizarre dreams
excessive thirst
shoulder tightness
... and more than 50 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of adverse reaction to delayed meals:
Cause Probability Status
Hypoglycemia 98% Confirm
Dehydration 55% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Metabolic Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about adverse reaction to delayed meals:
Do you feel shaky, headachy, tired, faint or nauseated when meals are delayed?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Occasionally / moderately
→ Often / severely
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate adverse reaction to delayed meals, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Dehydration

When we skip meals, we often also skip the drinks that go with the food.  If your hydration status is already marginal, a delayed meal may be enough to trigger dehydration symptoms.

Hypoglycemia

Skipping a meal causes blood sugar levels to drop, triggering a release of hormones that compensate for low glucose levels.  These can narrow the arteries, increase blood pressure, and result in headaches or migraines.  Low blood sugar also leads to fatigue and the feeling of weakness.
