Can I Be Sensitive To Food If I’m Not Allergic To Any?

Can I Be Sensitive To Food If I’m Not Allergic To Any?

I tested negative on having any food allergies, but I do feel that food can affect inflammation. I cut saturated fats out because I was on keto and I was really hurting. Now I feel worse. Fatigue and hurting

I was getting a bad stomach ache and cramping after eating and I suspected I had a gluten allergy so I went and they tested me by sticking me w a needle and came back in 15 minutes and told me it was negative but the next day I had a severe rash so I called them and they said oh a little reaction is normal so I told her no my arms are covered with a very bad rash and asked her can I text her a picture and she said no long story short I went gf on my own and had immediate relief ! You know your body best! Good luck!!

I don’t think they have reliable testing for inflammation foods. But I know papyrus are known for removing it.Too much tomatoes and sauces are bad too.

Sorry about that. It's all a trial and error thing with all of us. For me, a gluten free diet should help me but it actually really upsets my stomach if I follow that diet exactly. Another is an anti-inflammatory diet. My inflammation rates are so high according to my blood work, but if I go on a strict diet to reduce that, another stomach killer. So I do what agrees with my stomach, a loosely based low carb diet but I watch out for my kidneys (stage 3 CKD) and drink lots of water a way. I also know that Apple Cider Vinegar replaces my stomach acid so I have some am & pm. Only one cup of caffeine (coffee) a day makes a difference too. I love tomatoes but they are really a big no no for me. So I eat them very rarely and so enjoy them knowing that it might be a month before I have them again. Dieting is really eating foods in moderation or not at all. Some foods should be on the never list but my mind craves them so badly that I am weaning myself off through moderation. I don't know if this helps you or not but hopes it helps. I have so many conditions, 3 different diets recommended. How to know which one to follow? Trial and error and which one your body responds best with. I guess that is my advice for you.

Processed food makes me feel worse. I try to eat fresh or fresh frozen

Oh hell ya! When I cut out sugar, carbs, processed food and bad saturated fats, it is an ENORMOUS difference; however, since being on the Amgevita Biologic, I have noticed it greatly helps my inflammatory bowel disease! It is amazing and don't want that to change it helps so much!

Glad you feel better without those food items!!! :)
