Abstract

A gastroenterologist comments on three "thumb rules" for three common diseases. For acute diarrhea: Oral-rehydration, early refeeding and no antibiotics. For recurrent abdominal pain: "wait and see", avoid searching for Helicobacter pylori and attempt making a positive diagnosis. For coeliac disease: Consider the diagnosis even if no typical symptoms are present, use the best available test (hTTGA) and avoid postponing gluten introduction in the infant's diet.
