Food Allergy | Food Intolerance Test
A food allergy or intolerance test is a diagnostic test that helps identify specific foods or substances that may be triggering an allergic or intolerant reaction in an individual. These tests aim to pinpoint the specific foods or ingredients that the person’s immune system is reacting to, allowing for targeted dietary adjustments or avoidance strategies.
The results of these tests help identify specific food allergens or intolerant substances that may be triggering allergic or intolerant reactions in an individual. This information guides healthcare professionals in providing accurate diagnoses and developing personalized treatment plans, which often involve avoiding the identified food allergens or intolerant substances. By avoiding these triggers, individuals can minimize or eliminate the symptoms associated with food allergies or intolerances, improve their quality of life and prevent potentially severe allergic reactions.
