What Can You Learn from Food Sensitivity Testing?
Food sensitivity may be able to help you get to the bottom of your digestive problems. Nausea, diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, and cramping are often associated with a food sensitivity. You could have always had a problem or it could be something new. A variety of testing may be performed when you seek help from a doctor who specializes in food sensitivities. Food sensitivities are not only restricted to digestive problems. They can also cause a rash, hives, or acne. Our doctor may test for the presence of IgG and IgA antibodies. These antibodies are produced by your body in response to certain foods that you eat. They can build up in your system over time. You might not experience symptoms on the day you eat something that is causing a food sensitivity, but you could feel the difference later on.
Why Do Food Sensitivities Make You Feel Ill?
When you are the victim of food sensitivities, inflammation is a response in your body. This can lead to major digestive discomfort. You may have developed a food sensitivity later in life. This could explain new symptoms. You may have always had a food sensitivity, but never associated mild symptoms with what you were eating. In some cases, your food sensitivity may have become more severe. When your body starts reacting to something in your diet, you need to find answers. Food sensitivity testing can help you to figure out what is going on so you can start to feel better.
