There's a 20 per cent chance your chronic disease is caused by chemical intolerance - but your doctor will never know

If you have a chronic health problem - such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease or allergies - there's a 20 per cent chance it's been caused by a chemical intolerance

If you have a chronic health problem - such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease or allergies - there's a 20 per cent chance it's been caused by a chemical intolerance. But if it is, there's almost no chance your doctor will detect it.
Doctors have a blind spot when it comes to chemical intolerances - usually of household products such as cleaners, fragrances, and the fire retardants on new carpets and furnishings.
In a study of 400 patients attending one health clinic for chronic problems, 20 per cent had a chemical intolerance - but the doctor hadn't picked up the association. Instead, they were treated in the usual way - further tests, prescription drugs, even possibly surgery - when just taking the chemical out of their lives would have reversed the condition.
Clues of a chemical intolerance include fatigue, changes in mood, difficulty thinking or concentrating and digestive problems, say researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Center.
