Food Allergy and Sensitivity Testing
Sometimes it can be tricky to figure out why you do not feel good. There are a million different diets that restrict everything you eat to determine food allergies or sensitivities. Why not just ask your body? Your body is trying to talk to you with symptoms, so you just need to listen…and test.
Food Allergy vs. Sensitivity
The difference between an allergy or a sensitivity is the way your body responds. Typically an allergy is your immune system reacting to protect your body. Sensitivity or intolerance is usually a reaction by the digestive system.
- • Symptoms of food intolerance can include nausea, gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, cramping and other GI issues.
- • Symptoms of food allergy can include swelling, itching, hives and other life-threatening reactions.
