FOOD INTOLERANCE is much more common than food allergy and is not caused by the immune system. The onset of symptoms is usually slower, and may be delayed by many hours after eating the offending food. The symptoms may also last for several hours, even into the next day and sometimes longer. Intolerance to several foods or a group of foods is not uncommon, and it can be much more difficult to decide whether food intolerance is the cause of chronic illness, and which foods or substances may be responsible.
With food intolerance, some people can tolerate a reasonable amount of the food, but if they eat too much (or too often) they get symptoms because their body cannot tolerate unlimited amounts.
The symptoms caused by food intolerance are varied but communing include difficulty in losing excess weight. They can also cause gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, irritable bowel, skin rashes, fatigue, joint pains, dark circles under the eyes, night sweats and other chronic conditions.
