What else do you need to know?

Even before learning your sensitivities and allergies, you can get advice from an expert Nutritional Therapist, before you take your test.

  • What is Coeliac Disease?
  • How common are Allergies and Sensitivities in the US?
  • Food labelling
  • Post-test analysis: What is an Elimination Diet? Will it help me cope with my Sensitivities?

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition where the body mistakes the protein gluten, found in wheat, barley and rye, as a threat to the body and attacks it. This damages the lining of the small intestine producing inflammation and physical symptoms.

According to FARE, researchers have estimated that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million under age 18. Put another way, that’s roughly two children in every classroom. (FARE)
About 30 percent of children with food allergies are allergic to more than one food.

There are 14 foods which must be labelled and identified as ingredients on all pre-packed food:

Cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, peanuts, soybeans, milk, nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, pecan nuts, Brazil nuts, pistachio nuts, macadamia nuts), celery (including celeriac), mustard, sesame, sulphur dioxide/sulphites, lupin, molluscs

It is recommended that if you are shown to have an allergy or a sensitivity that you try an elimination diet. This is the removal of foods which may be harmful to your body from your daily diet. You will know what these are after they have been identified as causing an allergic or sensitive reaction on your test.
