What is the difference between intolerance and allergy?
The symptoms that some people experience after eating certain foods demonstrate the kind of reaction triggered by the body. Intolerance causes gradual side effects such as stomach cramps, headache and difficult digestion. An allergy involves an immune system response that recognises the food as a harmful substance and generates antibodies. Your doctor can help with a careful diagnosis, also prescribing medicines to stop the reaction.
