Allergy & Intolerance Tests

Allergies & Intolerances, what’s the difference?

An allergy is an immune system response. It is caused when the body mistakes a protein for a harmful substance and creates a defence system (antibodies) to fight it.

Allergic reactions are immediate reactions, and they can be life-threatening in some cases.

An intolerance is a non-immune system response. Symptoms of intolerance usually occur several hours after exposure to a trigger, whereas an allergy can result in an immediate reaction.

Often people need to be exposed to larger amounts of food types to trigger an intolerance, unlike an allergy. Food intolerance is not life-threatening.

Sensitivity Tests

What is a sensitivity?

Sensitivities include all those reactions to food and non-food items that can activate a non-immune mediated response.

Instead, they can be caused by not having the right enzymes you need to digest certain foods or a reaction to food additives or preservatives.
