The food and beverages you consume can cause a reaction and impact your health. Even if you never had a food allergy in the past, you may suddenly become sensitive to certain foods at any time. Not all food allergies or sensitivities cause a violent or deadly reaction – many symptoms of food sensitivities may be mild, but still undermine your health. Here is what you need to know about food allergies and how to determine whether the foods you eat are making you sick.

Symptoms of Food Sensitivity

Mild food allergies and sensitivities can silently be impacting your health. While severe food allergies are evident with extreme symptoms, the signs of food sensitivities or mild allergies are not necessarily immediate or recognized. When your body does not tolerate certain foods well, it can cause inflammation and disruption to many systems in the body. Deteriorating health for no apparent reason can often be linked to food allergies or sensitivities. Some of the symptoms you may experience include:

  • Weight gain
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Rashes
  • Diarrhea
  • Heartburn, gas or stomach pain
  • Irritability or moodiness
  • Fatigue

Food intolerances, sensitivities and allergies all can manifest in different ways. You may just have less energy or find it difficult to lose weight, without any specific reason. Identifying food sensitivities and allergies can be a relief to many people who have suffered from the effects without any options for relief.
