Abstract

Clinical Question:

Do dietary interventions, such as probiotics, improve pain in children with recurrent abdominal pain?

Clinical Application:

Compared with placebo, children who were treated with probiotic preparations were more likely to experience improvement in pain in the short term (odds ratio, 1.63; 95% CI, 1.07-2.47), suggesting that clinicians could consider probiotics as part of a holistic management strategy in recurrent abdominal pain.
