|Food Allergies May Mimic Bladder Infections
It has been determined that individuals that experience frequent symptoms of urinary infections may, in fact, be suffering from food allergies or intolerance. To determine if you have a urinary tract infection, it is now possible to do a home test using test strips which you can purchase from your pharmacist. If the test strips do not show bacteria, you may be suffering from food allergies.
To determine if you have food allergies or intolerance, eliminate all occurrences of one food at a time. Be sure to read labels on all foods you eat and check with the pharmacist on ingredients that may be in your prescriptions as well. Once that food has been successfully eliminated for one to two weeks, reintroduce the food into the diet and observe the effects on the body. If symptoms reoccur, then food allergies are likely the cause. If they do not, eliminate a different food and repeat the process until you have either discovered the offending food (there may be more than one) or you have determined that food allergies are not to blame. It is important to note that certain allergies may be related to food but may actually be due to pesticides or other additives. Make sure you take this into account when testing.
To deal with food allergies, you can eliminate the food from the diet and slowly reintroduce it over a period of a few weeks to a couple of months. This will allow the body to readjust to the food. It may also be helpful to add Food Enzymes to assist with digestion.
