Food intolerance is associated with the inability to digest certain foods, such as dairy or gluten, resulting in unpleasant physical reactions in the body. Bloating and stomach pain are the most common symptoms of food intolerance, occurring within several hours of eating. If you suffer from weight gain, digestive problems, eczema, psoriasis, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea with urgency, headaches, itchy skin, you may benefit greatly from food intolerance testing.
Food intolerances can be a nuisance. They can be triggered by various food groups or substances and can come and go over time as you age. The food intolerance test identifies the foods to which a person may be sensitive or intolerant and is an excellent way to begin an elimination diet to narrow down problem foods.
Food intolerance is not life-threatening. However, it could take around three days for symptoms to develop, making it hard to identify the culprit food.
Food allergies are not the same as food intolerances. Food Allergies can be life-threatening, causing difficulty breathing, anaphylactic reactions, vomiting, and swelling of the lips.
