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