Food sensitivity is an inadequate immune system response to certain food antigens. The correct diagnosis of a food sensitivity is very complex. The determination of intestinal permeability is very important in the study of this pathology. Several studies show that increased intestinal permeability leads to a rise in the number of food sensitivities
This inadequate response can lead to different symptoms:
- Abdominal pains.
- Constipation and/or diarrhoea.
- Abdominal cramps.
- Flatulence and nausea (with or without vomiting)
- Fatigue or tiredness.
- Headaches and/or migraines.
- Widespread pain: muscular, or joint.
- Central symptoms: numbness, memory loss or sleep disturbances.
- Difficulty losing weight.
- Growth retardation in children.
