Migraine Study 2005

A prospective audit looked at migraine sufferers to determine whether eliminating the foods highlighted in the result of a YorkTest food-specific IgG antibody test could improve their condition.

Patients were recruited from Primary Care practices and were encouraged to alter their diets to eliminate their ‘trigger foods’. Their progress was followed for a 2-month period. The study showed: “A marked proportion of the migraine patients benefited from dietary intervention by cutting out (the problem) foods.” And that “over 60% of patients who re-introduced the suspect foods back into their diets reported the return of their migraine symptoms.”

The study’s authors said: “This investigation demonstrated that food intolerance may be associated with migraine and that changing the diet to eradicate certain foods may be a potentially effective treatment for migraine.”
