Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose fatigue before eating, 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 "fatigue before eating" as a symptom.  Here are two possibilities:
  • PMS C
  • 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:
sugar/sweet craving
carbohydrate craving during cycle
indoor allergies
front-of-head headaches
unsound sleep
low energy/stamina
afternoon headaches
regular bizarre dreams
adverse reaction to delayed meals
very strong appetite
depression with some anxiety
numb/burning/tingling extremities
... and more than 20 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of fatigue before eating:
Cause Probability Status
Hypoglycemia 92% Confirm
PMS C 52% Possible
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

→ Yes, eating seems to reduce my fatigue a little
→ Yes, eating very definitely reduces my fatigue
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate fatigue not relieved by eating, fatigue slightly reduced by eating or fatigue definitely reduced by eating, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
