Food Allergy Testing Cork
A food allergy is relatively rare with only about 2% of the adult population being affected. Mary Carmody Nutrition Cork can discuss food allergies with you. Allergy Testing is available if advised by Mary.
- Reactions usually occur quickly, with a maximum of 2 hours after exposure to the ‘reactive’ food.
- The body’s IgE immune system is activated by the immediate ingestion of the reactive food.
- Symptoms include: difficulty breathing, rashes, swelling, runny nose and anaphylactic shock. These can potentially be life threatening.
- Finally, trace amounts of these foods can cause reactions.
Many people can suffer for years, having formed a coping mechanism to deal with the symptoms but being unable to enjoy a normal work and home life. Many people don’t realise that there are easy steps beginning with Allergy Testing to take that could resolve their condition.
A recent study* has shown that those who eliminated trigger foods based on food-specific IgG test results had reductions in weight, body mass index, waist and hip circumference and improvements in all indicators of quality of life that were measured. The quality of life indicators included physical and emotional wellbeing, mental health, social life, pain levels and vitality therefore if you are suffering from any of the symptoms below, simply contact Mary or order one of her tests online.
IgG results are obtained from the Food Allergy Tests and Food Intolerance Tests provided and performed by Mary Carmody Nutrition in Cork.
