Stomach Cramping, Pain and Food Intolerance

Stomach Cramping Food Intolerance

How Diet & Food Intolerances Affect Stomach Cramping

Stomach cramping, aches, or abdominal pain is something everybody has to deal with at some time or another. Usually no treatment is necessary and negative symptoms fade after time.

 

Yet, when chronic, lifestyle and eating changes may be required to reduce discomfort.

 

Common Causes of Stomach Cramping

 

In most cases, stomach cramps and slight pains are nothing to worry about. They can be attributed to anything from too much gas buildup to indigestion. In some cases, however, stomach cramping can be a sign of an underlying condition. Visit your GP if abdominal pain is severe and doesn’t go away.

 

Possible underlying causes include:

 

 

Symptoms Include:

 

  • Mild to sharp pain
  • Indigestion
  • Constipation
  • Slight fever
  • Frequent passing of gas
  • Tender abdominal area

 

How Food Intolerance Can Contribute to Cramping Symptoms

 

When dealing with food intolerance and stomach pain, two major factors play a role in creating negative symptoms:

 

Inflammation

 

When your body lacks the enzymes required to break down the foods you eat, your immune system will treat the undigested proteins as intruders. The inflammatory-immune response that ensues can cause dull to sharp pains in your stomach as your body defends itself.

 

Excess Gas Production

 

The inability to break down foods in your intestines can lead to an imbalance of bacterias in the gut or digestive tract. This can ultimately lead to a greater buildup of gas that can then become trapped and cause pain.

 

Effectively monitoring how your body reacts with your diet can help identify possible trigger foods that worsen cramps and abdominal issues.

 

How a Food Intolerance Test Can Help

 

Eliminating and replacing problem foods from your diet may help fight against cramping or reduce symptoms. The quickest way to identify your exact food intolerances is by taking a blood test that measures IgG antibody levels against a variety of different food proteins.

 

This kind of testing helps to quickly identify which foods are responding negatively to your system and are much more efficient than food journaling or guess-and-check diets.

 

All that’s left to do after you get your results is to eliminate the foods you’re intolerant to. That’s it. No follow ups. No exercise regiments. Zero hassles.
