What symptoms might I be suffering from if I have a food intolerance?
You will find here a (non exhaustive) list of symptoms that may be caused by a food intolerance. If you have any of the symptoms listed below and are suspecting a food intolerance, you should see a functional doctor.
Please note that symptoms of a food allergy are quite different from those of a food intolerance. If you want to learn more about the difference between food allergy and food intolerance you can read my article on this topic by clicking here.
IgG mediated food intolerance leads to underlying inflammation in the body. This can manifest in a range of symptoms :
- gastrointestinal complaints (bloating, constipation, diarrhea, stomach cramps), Functional Colopathy and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- headaches and migraines
- Ear Nose and Throat disorders
- pathologies related to joint, tendon and muscle,
- skin conditions like hives, eczema, and psoriasis,
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- some neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression, bulimia, autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders, difficulty concentrating, anxiety,
- Autoimmune diseases (ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, Hashimoto’s disease etc.)
- Chronic weight problems
Thanks to an IgG test that has pointed out my own food intolerances I have:
- lost 33 pounds of overweight (you can read more about my weight loss by clicking here)
- stopped having mood changes due to hypoglycemia
- cured my keratosis pylaris (hugly red spots on my arms)
- gained a lot of energy
- last but not least, gone off all medication for my auto immune disease (ankylosing spondylitis).
