Symptoms of food intolerance

Food intolerance† is a condition with a wide range of symptoms including:

  • Abdominal Pain / Aches and Pains / Acne
  • Bloating / Constipation / Diarrhoea
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Dizziness / Eczema / Fatigue
  • Headaches / Hyperactivity / Migraine
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Itching / Fluid Retention
  • Nausea / Rashes / Rhinitis / Sinusitis
  • Stomach Cramps / Tension / Tiredness
  • Urticaria / Weight loss / Weight Gain / Wheezing

Symptoms of food intolerance can take up to 72 hours to  appear  after eating the trigger food or group of foods.  On  average people who suffer from food intolerances usually have  between 4 and 8 trigger foods.

Many people suffer for years, having formed a coping  mechanism to deal with the symptoms but being unable to  enjoy a normal work and home life.  Many people don’t realise  that there are easy steps to take that could resolve their condition.

What is the difference between allergy and intolerance?

The term ‘food intolerance’ and ‘food allergy’ are often confused and are two very different things.

Genuine food allergy is relatively rare. Only about 2% of the adult population are affected. A food allergy is a swift response by the body’s immune system to a specific food. In this type of reaction, the body’s immune system mistakes a food for an ‘invader’ which often results in a rapid allergic reaction often within minutes, but generally within a maximum of two hours. This type of allergic reaction is commonly associated reactions to peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs and seafood.

Food intolerance is quite different to food allergy and whilst the symptoms can impact the person’s quality of life they are not life threatening. Food intolerances are much more common than food allergies.

 Allergy vs Intolerance

Food Intolerance Food Allergy
Reactions up to 72 hours after eating Immediate reactions (2 hours or less)
Multiple foods can be involved Rarely more than 1 to 2 foods
Any organ system can be affected Primarily skin, airways and digestive system
Very common Trace amounts of foods can cause reactions
Difficult to self-diagnose Caused by raised IgE antibody
Symptoms can clear after avoidance (3-6 months)

† Food intolerance is a condition with a range of symptoms including gut symptoms, bloating, headaches, migraines, low mood, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems. These symptoms must always be checked out by a Medical Professional. If you have clients that have seen a Medical Professional but have not been given a diagnosis for their symptoms then they may be suffering from food intolerance.
