Another food intolerance test ready to be sent off in the morning. I’ve had so much interest regarding the test since posting my results up a couple of days back…. So I wanted to give you a little bit more insight as to what food intolerance actually means as I hear so many people saying ‘the doctor said I’ve got an allergy to this’. Having an allergy is not the same as an intolerance.
Food intolerance VS food allergy
Food Intolerance – reactions up to 72 hours after eating – multiple foods can be involved – any organ system can be affected – very common – difficult to self-diagnose – symptoms can be clear after avoidance (3-6 months). Food allergy – immediate reactions (2 hours or less) – rarely more than 1 to 2 foods – primarily skin, airways and digestive system – trace amounts of foods can cause reactions – caused by raised IgE antibody – Lifelong.
45% of the population have a food intolerance that they don’t even know about.
