Food Intolerance Test
What is food intolerance?
Food intolerance refers to the unfavourable reaction to food. Some symptoms of food intolerance are bloating, nausea, cramps, etc. It is often given a low priority in the investigation of disease.
Food intolerance reactions can be caused by:
- Enzyme deficiency
- Histamine releasing effects
- Altered intestinal permeability (e.g. Leaky Gut)
- Medication side effects
While the majority of adverse reactions to food are rarely life threatening, they can be a source of considerable discomfort especially if you suffer from any chronic conditions and/or diseases.
Some common conditions where food intolerance may play a significant role are:
- Bloating and fluid retention
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Headaches or migraines
- Depression and mood swings
- Behavioural problems in children (ADD & ADHD)
What are some common symptoms of food intolerance?
Food intolerance symptoms are varied and have different reactions. Some common symptoms are:
- Skin Conditions
- Abdominal cramping
Sometimes, people live with these symptoms for years without suspecting the foods that may trigger them or the involvement of their immune system.
How does the IgG & IgA Food Intolerance Profile work?
The IgG & IgA general food panel is an efficient and reliable method for diagnosing people with adverse reactions to food.
