A recent survey of 100,000 patients suffering from sever acid reflux disease found that a large majority of the patients reported that missing a meal or two immediately eased the symptoms. Yet neither fasting nor dieting are used in treating acid reflux disease even though conventional treatments, which use drugs, are ineffective and have serious side effects.

Which of the following most explains the fact that neither fasting nor dieting is used in treating acid reflux disease?

(A) Prolonged fasting can cause other physical complications, including but not limited to lightheadedness and fainting.
(B) The precise cause of acid reflux disease has not yet been linked to any particular foods, or types of foods.
(C) The symptoms of acid reflux disease return as strong or stronger at the next snack or meal.
(D) For some suffers of acid reflux disease, missing a meal induces a temporary feeling wellness.
(E) Forcing patients to adhere to a diet or fast is more difficult when a patient is feeling ill.

IMO C, as if symptoms are going to return strong, then no point recommending fasting

(A) Prolonged fasting can cause other physical complications, including but not limited to lightheadedness and fainting.-- Incorrect -- we are not sure whether fasting for a meal or two can constitute prolonged fasting
(B) The precise cause of acid reflux disease has not yet been linked to any particular foods, or types of foods. -- Irrelevant
(C) The symptoms of acid reflux disease return as strong or stronger at the next snack or meal. - Correct -- reduction in Acid reflux symptoms are temporary
(D) For some suffers of acid reflux disease, missing a meal induces a temporary feeling wellness. -- Incorrect -- we already know this
(E) Forcing patients to adhere to a diet or fast is more difficult when a patient is feeling ill. -- Incorrect - but what about other cases
