Food Intolerance

There is a growing trend of people showing adverse reactions to different foods within their diet – generally termed as food intolerance.

Symptoms could be bloating, headache, fatigue, diarrhea, irritable bowel and other gastroenterology and dermatology related conditions. It is estimated that in developed countries every second person is suffering from a symptom related to food intolerance. Further, food intolerance symptoms are slowly turning into a serious lifestyle disease that is generally overlooked due to difficulties in diagnosis. Increase in awareness in the general population regarding health and nutrition has led to increased interest in understanding food intolerances.

Symptoms of food intolerance can be multifaceted and can appear within a few hours or even days after the consumption of the food. This makes it difficult for the healthcare practitioner and the patient to identify the food or foods responsible for the symptoms. There is a need for a quick diagnostic tool that can identify foods causing the adverse reaction and aid the healthcare practitioner to consider therapeutic options (e.g. a 1- or 2-month elimination diet) to alleviate the patient’s symptoms.

Important notes

  •  Food intolerance test results should always be interpreted by a trained healthcare practitioner along with the patient’s medical history.
  • Foods should not be completely and permanently eliminated from the diet based on the results. A temporary elimination diet for 1 to 2 months (as prescribed by a trained healthcare practitioner) followed by slow “reintroduction” of food into the diet and re-testing with NutriSMART® is recommended.
  • The NutriSMART Test is measuring the reactivity of specific IgG4  antibodies from the blood to various foods. Testing for sIgG4 may not necessarily reflect a reaction to the food itself, but may be an indirect indicator of intestinal permeability (i.e. leaky gut). Exclusion diet based on sIgG4 antibody testing has been shown to improve symptoms in patients suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
  • At times, there is also an overlap of food allergy with food intolerance. However, it has to be noted that food intolerance is usually due to our body’s inability to process the food and its compounds whereas food allergy is the IgE mediated immune system reaction to allergens/proteins within food.
