Vomiting or Nausea Symptoms
Vomiting or Nausea Symptoms. Is there a relationship between vomiting and Food Intolerance?
Often there is although your vomiting may not always necessarily be caused by food intolerance or a sign of one. If you have suffered badly with vomiting but have not identified what is causing these issues, then you may have a food intolerance.
Food Intolerances and allergies are a lot more common than most people realise. And there are many people around the world and in the UK not knowing that they are living with an allergy or food intolerance. Once you have identified your trigger foods, however, there are ways to manage it, and if you successfully avoid the offending food item, your vomiting may disappear.
Feeling nauseous? You have probably heard this saying often when you have eaten something and are feeling a bit worse for wear afterwards. Nausea can be a precursor to vomiting, but it can exist without vomiting occurring.
Vomiting is when your body empties the stomach forcefully, and in general, this is an involuntary action, although there are cases when vomiting has been voluntary, although this does depend on the circumstances. While unpleasant, vomiting can be harmful to the body and usually happens because you have digested an item that you cannot tolerate. After consuming certain foods, nausea and vomiting can usually be the sign of food intolerance.
Remember, vomiting and nausea do not necessarily mean you have a food intolerance. These feelings and actions can be linked to many other health conditions, and so it is always important that you consult your GP.
Please see NHS guidelines on when to contact your GP if you have vomiting.
If you suspect you have a food intolerance or are suffering from a food-related allergy, then you’ll want to understand how it is caused, what it’s doing to your body and whether your symptoms are related to an allergy or intolerance.
