Food intolerance is an adverse reaction to food as a result of the poor ability to digest or absorb that specific food. For some individuals, it can be very problematic. They are extremely common. An estimated 20% of the world’s population suffers from food intolerances and this seems to be on the rise (1).
Common symptoms of food intolerance include:
- Abdominal pain
Despite it being difficult to spot which particular food is associated with intolerance, Twinkle Home Health Care makes it easier to diagnose food intolerance with modern diagnostic tests. We are using IgG antibody test that helps to evaluate the level of food antibodies in the blood sample. This is a simple blood test that can easily be performed at home. This test allows the analysis of around 220 foods.
Though there is no ultimate treatment plan for food intolerance, there is increasing evidence for using an elimination diet (2, 3). Elimination diet involves removing those foods which are most commonly associated with intolerance for a shorter period. Later you can reintroduce those foods individually to check for symptoms. In this way, an elimination diet help to reduce your symptoms. It only lasts for 5-6 weeks. This simple act of avoiding certain foods and substituting them with alternative options will change your life completely
