If you suspect that you might have a food allergy or a food sensitivity because you keep experiencing symptoms usually associated with intolerance, like a bloated stomach, then you have landed at the right place. If you have taken a test and your results have revealed that you had a food sensitivity then please continue to scroll down. If you have not taken a test and would like to find out if you have a sensitivity then please order your test here.
Be prepared to avoid your favorite foods
Yep, not the news you wanted to hear, but it is the news you must be prepared for when ordering a food sensitivity test. Test My Allergy can help to identify your food sensitivities with a test that also provides you with nutritional advice and guidance. Think of those foods that you absolutely adore, and think about how often you eat them (including peanuts!). Are you constantly experiencing a bloated stomach or breaking out in a skin rash? If so, you could have developed a food sensitivity. Your bloated stomach, headache, or a runny nose could appear up to 72 hours after consuming a food item.
What causes a bloated stomach?
Many people associate a bloated stomach with eating too much or suffering from lactose intolerance. But, what if it was something else? Lactose intolerance can cause these symptoms, but it is not the only food. Make sure there are not any other foods as well as lactose which are causing an issue by ordering a test today. If your bloated stomach is always appearing at the most inconvenient times, then an intolerance test can mean it is time to say goodbye.
Importantly, you need to make sure it is not an allergy, as this could be life-threatening. If it is sensitivity, it can still affect your social and work-life, but it is very unlikely that it will be life-threatening. It may simply mean that you have eaten too much of certain items.
When do they develop?
Developing a food sensitivity can happen simply through eating too many sensitivities whereas an allergy can develop through childhood. Remember there is a difference and it could be life-altering if you identify your sensitivities. If you suspect that you have an allergy, we recommend you consult your doctor immediately.
Know the difference
It is very important that you know the difference between an allergy and an intolerance. They are significantly different, and getting the right diagnosis ensures that you follow the correct plan to manage your sensitivities and allergies.
If you think you may have an allergy, we recommend you must consult your doctor immediately. If you want to identify whether your intolerance symptoms are caused by food intolerance, then please order your sensitivity test here.
