Food allergy & Intolerance

A true food allergy causes an immune system reaction that affects numerous organs in the body and can cause a range of symptoms. In some cases, an allergic food reaction can be severe or life-threatening. In contrast, food intolerance does not involve your immune systems, there is no allergic reaction and it is never life-threatening. Symptoms are generally less serious, often happen gradually  and are most commonly limited to digestive problems.

It can be difficult getting a referral to an allergy clinic to be tested for food allergy and intolerance but there is now a home test you can carry out that will give reliable results.
