Sponsored: Food sensitivity panels
Question: Often after I eat my stomach hurts. Could I be sensitive to a food and should I do one of those food sensitivity panels I can get on line?
Answer: Short answer - NO! There are no evidence-based food sensitivity panels and you will end up excluding food and you may be ignoring a medical issue. If you are experiencing stomach/gut related issues after a meal the first thing to do is make an appointment with your doctor or a medical clinic to check to see what may be causing this. Your physician may recommend testing to rule out various illnesses and diseases.
