Food Intolerance Test
Food intolerances can cause a myriad of symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, itching, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, nausea, indigestion and even hives.
Unlike a food allergy, a food intolerance does not affect the immune system or cause an immediate reaction such as itchiness, swelling or rashes. Instead a food intolerance often occurs when the body has a problem digesting the food.
With food intolerance testing, over 200 foods can be tested to determine whether you have an intolerance to any of them.
Your body’s reaction to each food substance will be confirmed as normal, borderline or elevated so you will be able to adapt your diet based on your test results and minimise the symptoms associated with food intolerances.
