Allergy or Intolerance?
What’s An Allergy And What’s An Intolerance?
The main question we get at Home To Lab, is what’s the difference between these two life-altering issues that plague so many people? We’re helping you to learn the terminology and appreciate your own body health in the process.
Many people have reported that their allergies are passed down from generation to generation, however, some say it’s a standalone issue that only they suffer from. Allergies are measured using Immunoglobulin E count (IgE) in your blood, as these cells fight the allergens.
If you find you have an allergy, your body uses the cells to fight it, and therefore it’ll show up on a blood test. Typically, IgE allergies are immediate responses to when a foreign substance that has entered the body.
Blood testing with a blood prick test can be very painful and is the only way to fully learn about your allergies, as can cause serious issues like swelling, rashes, and difficulty breathing. For more symptoms, check out our Home To Lab facts.
Allergic reactions may show up just minutes after the item has been ingested. The severity of symptoms and it’s pain level varies from person to person, making it extremely difficult to track similarities. IgE allergies cannot be cured, so the usual recommendation is by removing the items from the diet.
Intolerances can be tricky to manage, as they change depending on your diet and lifestyle. An intolerance is the body’s inability to digest an item properly, whether this is a food intolerance or an environmental factor (a non-food intolerance).
A food or non-food intolerance is not as immediate as an allergy, symptoms can start progressively, up to 48 hours later. These symptoms might include bloating, headaches, excessive gas, diarrhoea, fatigue or skin irritations such as eczema.
To test for immune-mediated intolerances, you’ll need a test for raised IgG4 levels. There are a range of IgG tests available some testing all IgG’s (1-4) and others testing just one, however, no one can agree which is the most accurate. IgG4 food sensitivities are generally less severe than IgE allergies and degree and severity of symptoms vary because of the genetic makeup of the individual.
At Home To Lab, we proudly use bioresonance testing on the hair samples we receive to our testing facility. This globally tested way of testing has been around since the 1970’s and is a non-invasive way to get the results you need. The easy to understand results that you get can quickly be filtered into your life to ensure that you can begin your elimination diet.
Where do sensitivities come from? Usually, from foreign substances in food or via inhalation however it can be due to overexposure due to living in close proximity, or over-consumption if it’s regularly in your diet.
