There’s a lot of talk about food allergies, primarily because the rate of Americans suffering from food allergies is on the rise. If you suspect a food allergy, or any other kind of allergy for that matter, testing is a likely first step, and then elimination of the culprit. This may seem like a fool-proof plan, but it is not always the answer to the problem.
Allergy testing generally begins with the most common allergies, but what is you are someone who is allergic to something uncommon? Yes, more testing can be done to screen for more possible culprits, but many people are not tested for more than the most common allergens. Have you been tested for everything you consume? Sure you may have been tested for wheat, gluten, and dairy, but what other ingredients are included in your wheat and dairy products? Look at the label on your loaf of bread or cup of yogurt. Do your allergy test results include all of those ingredients?
Things get even more complicated. It is possible to have an intolerance or sensitivity to something, even if the allergy test is negative. This means something in your diet could be causing or contributing to fatigue, difficulty sleeping, digestion issues, rashes, chronic pain, and many other health complications, even if all the test results came back negative. Further, if you continue to consume foods that do not agree with your body, your body will have a hard time processing them, which can make it extremely difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Some health foods may actually be unhealthy for you.
