Causes for Food Intolerances
A family history of allergy or intolerances makes it more likely that a person will suffer from food intolerances. However, often there is a trigger which means that the person reacts adversely to a food that previously gave no problems. Examples of these triggers are:
* Hormonal changes - e.g. puberty, pregnancy, starting or stopping breastfeeding, starting or stopping the contraceptive pill, menopause, starting or stopping HRT.
* A nasty virus or tummy bug.
* A course of antibiotics or a new medication can act as a trigger for food intolerance to start or for the symptoms to be exacerbated.
* After an operation.
* A prolonged period of stress can also trigger a person to start reacting to previously benign foods. This stress could be related to e.g. work, relationships or a bereavement.
