Food Allergy | How can Sensitivity Check help you? | Blog

If you have taken an intolerance test with Sensitivity Check to identify your food allergy which has highlighted certain allergies and intolerances, then you will probably be wondering how you will be able to manage these symptoms. One of the first things that you should consider is an elimination diet. This means that you will not have to take any medication as you have removed the potentially harmful allergen from your diet. 

An elimination diet is something that we recommend if you have an allergy or intolerance to an item that is quite easy to avoid. If you are cutting certain foods out of your diet to try and identify your food allergy, then you may see your symptoms disappear once you are no longer eating the harmful item. So, if those headaches have disappeared and you find yourself no longer fatigued, then this means that you have identified that you have an intolerance or an allergy to that food item.

What to do about allergies and intolerances?

Remember, not all allergies and intolerances are always food related. If you have a question about what our tests measure, then please click here. At Sensitivity Check, our individual tests analyse common food items which are regularly found in the Western Diet and people have often reported a food allergy to them. Our team delivers the results you need in order to identify and cope with your sensitivities.

What if you thought you had a food allergy but you do not?

If your test ends up revealing that you have an intolerance to something external that is hard to avoid, then you may consider medication. If you are stocking up on medication in order to relieve some of your symptoms then you need to be careful, and we believe you should never do this without consulting a medical professional first. Sensitivity Check will be able to tell you for sure what you need to avoid, and it is recommended that you are extremely careful about where you are going and what you are touching.
