4 fixes for food intolerances

KEEP A DIARY

Food intolerance is a difficulty digesting foods, causing pain, bloating, wind or diarrhoea. It follows a pattern, so keep a diary.

SEE A DIETITIAN

They can give you advice on food groups. Testing is not recommended by the British Dietary Association as there is insufficient evidence.

TRY FOODS AGAIN

Try reintroducing the suspect food, at very low levels at first. You may find you can tolerate a certain intake before symptoms relapse.

CUT FOODS OUT

Elimination diets can be complex, but if your diary suggests a certain food type, cut it out for two to six weeks and see if you improve.
