Avocado Intolerance

Avocado Intolerance Information

An avocado intolerance will cause a person to experience negative symptoms after eating avocados or foods that contain avocado. An avocado intolerance is different from an avocado allergy. With an allergy, a person will experience very severe symptoms shortly after consuming the offending food. These symptoms can be life-threatening for some people and in some situations. Food intolerance symptoms are not life-threatening. With an avocado intolerance, the symptoms are also delayed. Rather than the nearly-immediate response of a food allergy, avocado intolerance symptoms can be delayed for several hours and even up to a day in some people. These symptoms, while not being life-threatening, can be “lifestyle-threatening.” This means that they make it difficult for a person to life his or her daily life without difficulty, pain or discomfort.

Avocado intolerances (like all food intolerances) are very individual. Each person will experience the intolerance in his or her own specific way.

Due to this fact, as well as due to the delay between eating the food in question and experiencing symptoms, it can sometimes be quite difficult for a person to determine whether or not he or she has a food intolerance without assistance. A person with a food intolerance may have lived with the symptoms for quite some time, unaware of why he or she was feeling badly. In many cases, this becomes the “new normal” and the person will not think of investigating the cause of the symptoms.

What is an Avocado Intolerance?



An avocado intolerance is when a person experiences negative symptoms after eating avocados or foods that contain avocado. These symptoms are delayed and vary between different people. With a food intolerance, such as an avocado intolerance, each person will experience the intolerance differently. One person may feel symptoms within a few hours of consuming the offending food while another person may not feel anything for several hours or more. Food intolerance symptoms can be delayed by up to a day or more in some people. In addition, the type of symptoms, the severity of the symptoms and the length of time that the symptoms last will vary as well.

Food intolerances are generally more common than food allergies. In addition, a person may develop an avocado intolerance later in life. This means that someone who previously had no issue consuming avocado previously will not feel negative symptoms after eating avocado.

Some people who have an avocado intolerance will be able to eat small amounts of avocado or avocado that is prepared in certain ways. Other people will be unable to tolerate any amount of avocado. This is another way in which an avocado intolerance varies between different people.

Digestive Avocado Intolerance Symptoms



There are generally two different types of food intolerances. You can have a digestive food intolerance or an immune food intolerance. The symptoms of both kinds of intolerances will vary. When a person has an immune food intolerance, their body will respond with an immune reaction after eating the offending food. The reaction varies greatly between different people and is very highly individual.

With a digestive food intolerance, a person is unable to properly digest, process or absorb a food or a substance found in the food. In the case of an avocado intolerance, a person will be unable to properly digest, absorb or process avocado.

Digestive avocado intolerance symptoms include bloating, excessive gas, stomach pain, cramping, stomach aches, diarrhea and a number of other symptoms. They type of symptoms experienced by each individual and the duration and severity of the symptoms will vary between different people. Some people will need to eat a larger quantity of avocado before experiencing any negative avocado intolerance symptoms while other people will feel negative symptoms after eating any amount of avocado.

Avocado Intolerance Treatment



A person who has an avocado intolerance and who wishes to no longer experience the negative avocado intolerance symptoms should remove avocado and any foods made with avocado from his or her diet. This will ensure that the symptoms no longer appear. In many people, this does not have to be a permanent change. Many people will be able to reintroduce avocados back into their diet at a later date without having symptoms return. This should only be done on the advice of a medical professional to ensure that symptoms do not resume.

Avocados contain many nutrients and heart-healthy compounds. They contain valuable “good fats” as well as fiber and a number of vitamins (such as vitamin B, vitamin K and vitamin E.) They also contain oleic acid, which can help reduce cholesterol levels, as well as folate which helps protect an unborn baby in pregnant women. It has also been associated with a lower risk of heart attacks and heart disease. If you remove avocado from your diet due to a food intolerance, it is important that you get these nutrients from other sources.
