Food intolerance blood tests
Food intolerance is the body's wrong reaction to some foods.
People suffering from this condition may have both one and several of its symptoms.
Food intolerance is not the same as an allergy
With standard food allergies, acute and immediate immune responses usually occur after eating specific foods. Symptoms usually appear within a few minutes of ingestion of the allergen or coming into contact with it. Symptoms of a food allergy are sneezing, rash, skin irritation, runny nose, swelling, fatigue, diarrhea or vomiting.
In the case of food intolerance, the reaction can be delayed in time. Symptoms may appear after several days. Symptoms of food intolerance are not usually combined with foods - they are diagnosed as separate ailments. They are usually non-specific, often double or multi-organ.
It is worth knowing that food hypersensitivity may appear unexpectedly at any age. The problem may be the same for children and the elderly. Statistical studies say that 90% of children and 75% of adults suffer from food intolerance - unfortunately, the upward trend continues. Everything also indicates that food intolerance can be hereditary. If one of the parents suffers from it, the risk of having a child is 40% when it occurs for both of them - the likelihood of it increases by up to 70%. You can also inherit her from grandparents.
