In brief: Thorough evaluation

Need comprehensive history, including family history, personal travel, work, diet diary (including sugarless gums, candies, dairy, wheat, etc), antibiotic use; thorough physical exam; appropriate labs; maybe stool tests, evaluation of colon, upper GI and small bowel.
Most cases can be pinned down.
