Abstract

Management of gut-related symptoms in the pediatric population can be challenging. Many factors need to be taken into consideration including psychological, behavioral, social and family environments, and growth and developmental requirements. This review focuses on two issues: potential dietary therapies that are thought to relieve the symptoms of infantile colic, a condition that is believed to be gastrointestinal in nature; and the evidence and dietary considerations surrounding children with irritable bowel syndrome.
