Food Allergies and Intolerances

Food allergies and food intolerances are both reactions to certain foods, but they are not the same. A food allergy is a sudden allergic reaction to food that can take place within a few minutes to an hour after eating a certain food and is often life-threating. Food intolerances are more common and often have less urgent symptoms. It is recommended for GI’s and dietitians to work together to determine if there is a need to eliminate a food or food group from a patient’s diet.
