Food Intolerance Testing - Galway
What is Food Intolerance?
There is much confusion about the terms food intolerance and food allergy, and the differences between them. Many people speak about food allergy when their symptoms may actually indicate food intolerance.
As many as 45% of the Galway population suffer from food intolerance which may not be life threatening but can make all aspects of life very uncomfortable for sufferers. Food intolerance, also known as delayed onset food allergy, is due to an inability to fully process a particular food, usually making the sufferer feel unwell. Symptoms can be slow to develop and can take hours or days to appear.
When food is digested the proteins within the food are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption in the body. Sometimes larger fragments can pass through without breaking down, causing the body to react to them as invaders, attacking them using antibodies called Immunoglobulin G (IgG).
This may produce delayed and chronic symptoms. Food intolerance can be difficult to diagnose as offending foods can react hours or days after they have been eaten however it is rarely life-threatening. It can be managed by measuring IgG antibodies and eliminating reactive foods from the diet.
What Causes Food Intolerances?
People react differently to different foods. Food hypersensitivity can include:
Common Symptoms Caused by Food Intolerance
So if you suffer from any of these symptoms you could have a food intolerance and the only way to know for sure is to have your blood testing in a hospital standard laboratory. The Lorisian Food Intolerance tests use the ELISA (enzyme linked immuno-sorbent assay) method to detect circulating antibodies, which recognise and bind to purified food antigens. The ELISA method is used extensively in immunology and biochemistry. This technique has been shown to be highly reliable (95% - 97% reproducible) in detecting a variety of antibodies and antigens of clinical importance.
