Intolerance VS Allergy... what's the difference?

Intolerance:
Food intolerances do not involve or activate your immune system. They are digestive problems that triggers symptoms in your gut such as bloating, diarrhea and flatulence.

Allergy:
Food allergies activate the immune system soon after eating a certain food. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to food can include digestive symptoms (similar to intolerance symptoms), hives or swollen airways (anaphylaxis reaction), which can be life-threatening.

Anatomy of the digestive system:

Liver:
Produces bile, an important secretion needed for lipid digestion. It is made up of bile acids and salts and also contains cholesterol and phospholipids.

Gallbladder:
Concentrates, stores and secretes bile.

Stomach:
Responsible for mixing food with gastric juices containing hydrochloric acid, which breaks down food, converts and activates pepsinogen to pepsin, denatures proteins and kills bacteria.

Pancreas:
Responsible for secreting insulin and glucagon and pancreatic juices that contains enzymes.

Small intestine:
Absorbs nutrients from food into the bloodstream.

Large intestine:
Reabsorbs 90-95% of fluid. Undigested carbohydrates pass through the large intestine and are fermented by gut bacteria.

IBS-D refers to "Diarrhoea Predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome". IBS-D is characterized by recurring episodes of diarrhoea, along with potential other gut symptoms including bloating, pain and excess gas.

Specifically, the criteria for IBS-D refers to more than a quarter of atypical bowel movements being Bristol stool types 6 or 7 (watery and very loose), and less than a quarter of stools types 1 or 2 (hard, lumpy or pellet like).

There are many management strategies for IBS-D including altering your diet and fluid intake or adjusting your fibre intake.

We'd recommend seeking advice from a specialised gut health dietitian if you're having issues with controlling your IBS-D!
