A food intolerance is an abnormal reaction in the digestive system to a specific food or food group. A food intolerance can be painful and inconvenient. Food intolerance symptoms can include:
- Stomach and abdominal pain
- Excessive Gas/wind
- Stomach cramps
- Strong headaches
- Weight gain
In medical language, type III lgG antibodies cause the food intolerance symptoms. Essentially, if you have a food intolerance to a food and you eat that food, your immune system ‘goes to war’ to deal with what your immune system considers an invader and a threat to your health. Hence the symptoms. Common food intolerances include gluten intolerance, wheat intolerance, and lactose intolerance. Gluten intolerance symptoms, wheat intolerance symptoms, and lactose intolerance symptoms are the same as the food intolerance symptoms listed above.
We all eat something from time-to-time that causes digestive discomfort. Food intolerance leads to chronic issues that you should address. For example, if you’re having any of the symptoms above you should see a medical specialist. And it would be wise to request a food intolerance test.
It’s important to note that food allergies are different from food intolerances. However, if you’re experiencing symptoms, you can be tested for food allergies.
