Food Intolerance Found To Be Associated With Migraine Symptoms

September 9, 2010: 07:58 AM EST

University research in the U.K. has found that identifying food intolerances and eliminating offending foods from the diet may help fight migraine symptoms. Food intolerance is a reaction to some foods and can affect long term health and quality of life with symptoms such as irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, tiredness, migraines and digestive complaints. Six million people in the U.K. suffer from migraine headaches, according to YorkTest, a maker of food intolerance tests, and eliminating problem foods could help many manage their migraine symptoms. Researchers used the company’s IgG antibodies test to determine food intolerances in 5,000 study participants. Within three months of eliminating identified problem foods from their diet, 76 percent showed moderate to high improvement in migraine symptoms and 86 percent showed moderate to high improvement in headaches.
