Improve your digestive comfort by taking the food intolerance test!
What is the food intolerance test?
Unlike food allergies, with which they are often confused, food intolerances refer to the body’s rejection of food by the body, which is unable to digest and assimilate it properly.
Food allergy is manifested by immediate symptoms, especially on the skin, being easy to notice. In contrast to allergies, food intolerances are non-specific, and the symptoms they produce resemble other commonly described forms of discomfort, especially in functional disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome.
Most food intolerances remain unexplained. Symptoms appear late, after a few hours after eating intolerable food, persist for a variable time, from a few hours to a few days, can also be caused by food additives (monosodium glutamate, sulfites).
The most common types of intolerances are gluten (responsible for celiac disease) and lactose.
Through a blood test, the NATGE food intolerance test indicates the foods you are intolerant to, from a list of 181 foods, from vegetables, fruits, dairy, fish, meat, to spices and cereals. Results showing high intolerances to certain foods will be mentioned in particular in the analysis report.
The test is performed at Synlab Laboratories.

At Superfit, we can support you with a personalized diet to better manage any food intolerances discovered after the test.
Patients who follow a proper diet will initially notice that some symptoms will disappear and even regain tolerance for some foods after the period of their exclusion from the diet. Thus, after a certain time, patients can reintroduce a food, and maintaining tolerance depends on the amount of such food ingested.
