One of another main triggering reason behind thyroid and related sensitivities is food reactions, though food is a source of nutrition and energy yet there are some foods which can cause reactivity in the body. There will be many skin reactions like acnes caused by food sources which include gluten, soy, eggs etc.
There are many people who observe quite positive changes in their body when they bring a change in their diet by avoiding food like soy, nuts, gluten, lactose and eggs. There are many who observe fewer breakouts if they avoid nuts and similarly others can also discover what they are sensitive to.
Cutting out the food from diet: Knowing what are the sensitivities
While someone is working on their thyroid disorders it’s important to work on their food reactivity and cut off the food which might be the reason behind reactivity.
It’s surprising to see that how your body can positively react by just giving up few food sources, like a much more clear skin can be gained and by even eating something you are sensitive to will result in marks getting prominent on your skin.
The best way to determine what food you are allergic to is Elimination diet.
Testing is also done in order to determine the reactive foods but they are not always authentic but follow the below steps to have an Elimination Diet.
- Follow clean dieting for 2-3 weeks
- Stay away from all the foods which can be reactive.
- With a gap of few days take each food.
- Note and observe which food might be reactive.
For an instance by taking lactose containing food someone might show swelling while other might have acnes, there are different reactions observed by different people.
If you are looking for symptoms, these might be few you should be aware of:
- Mood swings
- Gastric issues
- Muscles Pain
- Stomach Ache
There are also food tests which you can take but they are not usually as reliable and our not insured yet there are some which can be trusted like Alletess Lab. Though this also doesn’t give you the best of results as it might also give false results but its better than many.
Other than the above there is MedLab which provides tests like 96 Food Panel and 184 Food Panel which are used to determine the common food allergies.
In the end it is advised to rather follow up the Elimination Diet as its more reliable, though follows a longer period of time but it is quite beneficial and you may have to leave quite a lot of food from your diet but it will be temporary and an absolute conclusion is a lifetime help.
