Could A Food Sensitivity Be The Reason For Your Migraines?

Do you notice getting migraines after eating some of your favorite foods? This might be caused by an unknown food sensitivity!

Food sensitivity (Food Intolerance) is your body’s response to certain foods that occur hours and even days after a certain food is consumed. This is a delayed food reaction. This shouldn’t be confused with a food allergy, which are immediate reactions to a food and could be life threatening in some cases.

One of the major symptoms of having a food sensitivity are migraine. Due to the delayed reaction to certain foods, this makes it challenging to determine what foods might be causing your migraine. There are a couple of ways to test if you have food sensitivities:

  • Blood Test
  • Trial Elimination Diet
  • Skin Prick Test
  • Oral Food Challenge

All these tests can be conducted with the help of your physician, dietitian and allergists.

Determining what foods you may have a sensitivity to can possibly help you in cutting out that nasty migraine for good!
