If you are suffering from food intolerance symptoms, then you are probably wanting to know what is causing them and how you can make them disappear. However, understanding your symptoms and what they may be indicating can actually be more challenging than you think. This is why an intolerance test is so important in helping you identify what is causing your intolerance symptoms. 

Here are three intolerance symptoms you should look out for:

1) Bloated Stomach

Many people experience a bloated stomach and immediately think “I’ve eaten too much”, and this may well be the case, but a bloated stomach can also appear if you eat even the tiniest portion of food that you have an intolerance to. If you are aiming to beat the bloat, then an intolerance test is one of the best things you can do. This is because an intolerance test can identify what items you are intolerant to and help you to remove them from your diet. Bloat affects people of all ages, affecting both men and women and can range in severity. If your bloated stomach is causing you pain and suffering, then you should definitely consider an intolerance test. BUT, if you suspect that it is an allergy then you must consult your doctor immediately.

2) Fatigue

No, we’re not referring to the general “I’m tired because I stayed up all night” sort of fatigue. It may be that you are feeling lethargic and fatigued because of what you are eating. If you have a food intolerance, then you may feel fatigued each time you eat a certain item. Consistent fatigue that is not alleviated by sleep is a sign of food intolerance. There are also a great number of other conditions which are health-related which fatigue is a symptom, so if you order an intolerance test, you can learn if a particular food is causing you to feel more tired than usual.

3) Stomach Issues

Stomach issues such as diarrhoea and constipation are often caused as a result of food intolerance. If your body is struggling to digest certain foods then you will experience issues in your stomach. Constipation itself is defined as infrequent bowel movements which are different to a normal pattern in an individual. Understanding your intolerance is the first step in reducing the occurrence of constipation, and this can be done with an intolerance test.
