Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose long or short fingers and toes, 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 "long or short fingers and toes" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Marfan's Syndrome
  • High Histamine

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:
excess saliva in mouth
nausea for 1-3 months
frequent colds/flus
strong sexual desire
good creativity/imagination
minor joint pain/swelling/stiffness
poor tolerance of heat
excess nose/throat mucus
being a motivated person
good cold weather tolerance
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of long or short fingers and toes:
Cause Probability Status
Marfan's Syndrome 90% Confirm
High Histamine 54% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
