Symptoms of food sensitivity can vary to a great extend. However the symptoms of intolerance are all digestive-related.
These can include:
- Gas and bloating
Food allergies can be fatal, unlike a food intolerance or sensitivity. In extreme cases, ingesting or even touching a small amount of the allergen can cause a severe reaction.
Symptoms of food allergy include:
- Skin reactions: like hives, swelling, and itching
- Anaphylaxis, including difficulty breathing, wheezing, dizziness, and death
- Digestive symptoms
It can be difficult to determine whether the patient has a food intolerance or an allergy because the signs and symptoms often overlap.
Most common intolerance symptoms are:
- Migraines & Headaches
- Cough & Runny nose
- Feeling under the weather
- Stomach Ache
- Irritable Bowel
