What's causing your symptoms?

Understanding your symptoms and what they may be indicating can be a challenging process. Some symptoms are very common and can be a sign of many different conditions making it all the more difficult to truly identify the root cause.

We’ve put together some information on common symptoms experienced in allergy and intolerance. It must be noted that though anaphylaxis is not common, it is such an important subject to highlight when discussing allergies. Below are just some of the symptoms you can experience:

When considering the symptoms you experience, it can be useful to write them down along with the foods you have eaten in a food/symptom diary. You can then use this information to understand any links between your diet and symptoms. It is also important to consider all symptoms you experience together rather than each in isolation.

For each symptom, we have included the Lifelab Testing kit we would recommend. People and the symptoms they experience are highly individual though, so if you are unsure of whether the recommendation is right for you please do get in touch with our nutrition team who will be happy to guide you further.
