Any related to food: Any symptoms that are uncomfortable associated with eating a food can be called a food intolerance.
The term intolerance does not specify a particular cause. Commonly those symptoms which are not related to a food allergy are considered an intolerance.

Food intolerance: Symptoms of food intolerance are widely variable between people, and the foods themselves. There can be belly cramps, nausea, diarrhea, belching, body aches and pains, dizziness, rashes, difficulty with memory & concentration, etc. There can be days between eating a problematic food and perceptible symptoms, so diagnosing can be confusing. Integrative or functional medicine physicians can help.

Food intolerances fi: Keep a journal of what you are eating especially in proximity to the symptoms, don't forget over the counter medications. Food intolerances like lactose, fructose, sorbitol, nonabsorbable Cellulose found in some vegetables and even trehalose!-yes there is such a thing. Spend some time with your provider so you can exchange all the clues and this help confirm the suspicion of a food infolerance.
