Symptoms of Food Intolerance

The symptoms of food intolerance are similar to that of food allergies, and often leave one mistaken for the other. However, a few symptoms of intolerance to certain foods include:
Having difficulty digesting and processing certain foods? We can help identify specific food intolerances and develop a personalised action-plan to help you adapt to your dietary changes.


DNA Health & Wellness defines food intolerance/sensitivity as an IgG antibody reaction to food.   The food intolerance tests do not identify IgE-mediated food allergies, or provide information about celiac disease, enzyme deficiencies such as lactose, histamine, or tyramine, alcohol intolerance or other chemical sensitivities such as reactions to certain food additives.

Following a test, the assistance of a professional health care provider is advised and any medical concerns should be referred to a medical doctor.

DNA Health & Wellness is not responsible for any misinterpretation or misuse of the information that we provide, including any diagnoses or nutritional changes initiated by a client or another health care practitioner based upon the content of our test results.

Following which we can arrange for a scheduled appointment with our clinicians if purchased as part of your package or if you subsequently decide you would like to add this on, in order to help put in place the right management plan for you.

As a food-intolerance reaction is often similar to a food-allergy reaction, people frequently confuse them. However, only a true food allergy causes an immune system reaction. Also, while food allergy symptoms can sometimes be severe or life-threatening, food intolerance is normally a mild reaction related to digestion.

While any food can cause an adverse reaction, eight types of food are thought to account for about 90% of all food allergies in the US: eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, shellfish, wheat and fish.

The test results are dynamic, so they can change over time depending on your lifestyle at the time of the sampling. Many clients will perform follow-up tests after a period of elimination and lifestyle change or even on an annual basis (for some)
