Approximately 60 tonnes of food passes through the gastrointestinal tract in an average lifetime. With a surface area second only to the respiratory tract, it is surprising that adverse reactions to

A review of the role of the gut microflora in irritable bowel syndrome and the effects of probiotics

The faecal microflora in IBS has been shown to be abnormal with higher numbers of facultative organisms and low numbers of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, while the role of probiotics has not been clearly defined.

Dietary Modifications and Fibromyalgia

It can be concluded that dietary modification may provide relief in a subset of FM patients and certainly warrants further investigation.

Response to intestinal provocation monitored by transabdominal ultrasound in patients with food hypersensitivity

Responses of the proximal small intestines to direct provocation (swelling of the wall and exudation of fluid into the lumen) could be visualized by transabdominal ultrasound and could be helpful in the evaluation of patients with food hypersensitivity.

Food-Induced Immune Responses as Origin of Bowel Disease?

Yeast antigens, especially in people with a defect in the innate immune system, such as MBL-deficiency may lead to an enhanced immune reactivity to mannan antigen of yeast, which may have some significance in the perpetuation of intestinal inflammatory processes in patients with Crohn’s disease.

Research on food intolerance is discussed, since food intolerance may be involved in CFS symptom presentation and in oxidation via cytokine induction, and recent evidence suggests celiac disease can present with neurological symptoms in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms.

Food-specific IgG guided elimination diet; a role in mental health?

The biggest changes in the composition of the gut microbiome and neuronal development occur in childhood and adolescence, and there is a call to better understand the way that gut microbiota can be manipulated to contribute to treatment of mental illnesses in the developing teen.

Double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge with food items applied in capsules was performed in a prospective study of 17 selected patients and 34 age- and sex-matched healthy controls, finding a positive skin prick test correlated well with diet history, but both prick test and food antibodies correlated poorly with DBPCFC.
