Food intolerance refers to a difficulty digesting certain kinds of foods. The two most common foods associated with intolerance are dairy products and foods containing gluten. Despite an increasing prevalence, many people do not even realise they have these intolerances. The symptoms of gluten or dairy intolerances include bloating, headaches, and irritable bowel. If you have any of these symptoms, make an appointment to see the Doc.
