The difference between food intolerance and food allergy
It is important to distinguish between food allergy and food intolerance.
Food allergy is the tip of the iceberg. It results from a specific hypersensitivity to a substance foreign to the organism. Repeated consumption of certain foods or their components triggers an antigen-antibody reaction. The manifestation is immediate and externalized: from simple urticaria to respiratory or cardiac arrest, through strong digestive disorders, vomiting or diarrhea. On the other hand, during a food intolerance, the submerged part of the iceberg, the effects are more discreet and often delayed. Migraines, digestive disorders and diseases, ENT infections, skin diseases, rheumatism, etc..
Important to know: a food allergy test does not detect intolerances that detected by our cytotoxic test.
