Identifying Triggers

Everyone is unique, and keeping a food diary can be a helpful way to identify your personal food triggers. By becoming aware of possible symptom triggers between treatments, you can help manage the symptoms of the severe diarrhea and flushing associated with carcinoid syndrome.
