Gastrointestinal Symptoms and IgG Food Allergies
Type III food allergies may play a role in chronic ailments like Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Crohn’s disease
Stomachache, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation are common gastrointestinal disorders. Many people suffer from such chronic complaints of unclear origin, often accompanied by tiredness and exhaustion. Food hypersensitivities may be triggers of these ailments, among them IgG food allergies (type III). Two common gastrointestinal disorders are Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease (CD).
Crohn’s Disease is a chronic inflammatory disease. Foods may trigger such inflammations, for example through an IgG food allergy.
A low-grade inflammatory condition is discussed as one possible trigger of IBS. A type III food allergy may promote such inflammations.
