Food Intolerance Test: Making Eating Safe Again

Do you find that you feel ill after eating? Do you avoid social settings and restaurants because you dont know what, when or where you might have unplesant effects from food? You are certainly not alone in your concerns. A food intolerance, similar to an allergy but not as powerful, might be the reason for your discomfort.

Food is broken down in the body with differing enzimes. Without them, your body would develop a food intollerance. With intolerances, the food might not cause a reaction in your body for some time. Because the reaciton can be delayed, it is often difficult to find the food for which a body has developed an intollerance.

Some common intolerances, which you may have heard of before, are lactose intolerance (the inability to process dairy products) and gluten intolerance (the inability to process gluten, or wheat products), but there can be several other types, and all will produce unpleasant symptoms.

Food intolerances may cause bowel problems, such as diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, as well as fatigue and pain. The most effective way to avoid the symptoms of food intolerances is simply to avoid eating the foods that cause them, and the best way to discover what foods cause intolerances is to take a food intolerance test.

The elisa (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) food test is a common food intolerance test, which involves having blood collected-usually from the fingertip-either at home or in a doctor’s office. A lab then analyzes this sample for reactions with certain foods. A strong reaction will cause many IgG antibodies to be present in the blood; the more antibodies there are, the stronger the reaction will be.

The results of the food intolerance test will reveal how much was produced, and from what type of foods. Different providers use different scales, but they all measure basically the same thing – the production of antibodies. It should be apparent which, if any foods were causing intolerance reactions; studies have shown this sort of test to be quite effective in tracking down the source.

Should you realise you have a food intolerance, there are many steps you may take. The most obvious of them all is to avoid some food from your diet: this can be simple or difficult, depending on every specific food involved. For more usual intolerances – such as dairy – there are safe products properly labelled like that by manufacturers. But as far as other foods are concerned, you have to read ingredients and ask questions. This can be insensible at times, but it’s far better than the symptoms. Eventually, a food intolerance test is well justified even considering the cost and effort.
