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

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 reactions to coffee" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • Caffeine Intoxication
  • Liver Congestion

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:
nausea for 1-3 months
forgetting dreams
sickness caused by wine
metallic taste in mouth
frequent unexplained nausea
being easily excitable
undigested fat in stools
being anxious/nervous
facial flushing
liver/gallbladder cleanses help
being a recovering alcoholic
dark facial coloring

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of adverse reactions to coffee:
Cause Probability Status
Liver Congestion 93% Confirm
Caffeine Intoxication 73% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
