Famous People You Never Knew Had an Intolerance Test
8th October 2020 · Written by Rob
Food intolerances may not be glamorous, but that doesn’t mean they don’t affect the lives of the rich and famous! In fact, a staggering 30% of UK adults suspect they might need a food intolerance test, with the most common intolerances concerning gluten and dairy products.
If you’re worried that you may need an intolerance test, you’re not alone. Not only do intolerances affect the hundreds of people who have successfully diagnosed their issues with Lifelab Testing – they also affect some of the world’s best-known celebrities.
In this article, we’ll be revealing some of the most famous people you never knew had a food intolerance test.
1. Zooey Deschanel
The American model, singer, and star of the sitcom New Girl has been open about her food intolerances over the years. As well as suffering from coeliac disease, Zooey Deschanel is unable to eat eggs, dairy, and soy.
Deschanel switched to veganism for a short time, but found it was hard to get a balanced diet while cutting out animal products as well as gluten and soy.
2. Billy Bob Thornton
The actor, writer, and musician Billy Bob Thornton is known for many things – but these don’t usually include his intolerance test. Like Deschanel, Thornton follows a vegan diet, following diagnoses of both egg and dairy intolerances. He has also had an intolerance test for wheat, which he no longer eats.
3. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus – a past star of the Disney Channel who’s now known as a singer and actress – has had a food intolerance test for both gluten and lactose. These are two of the most common intolerances, with estimates from Bupa suggesting that between 10 and 20% of the population can’t digest lactose.
4. Kourtney and Kim Kardashian
The eldest child of Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian has had a number of intolerance tests. She reportedly felt the benefits of cutting out corn, dairy, and gluten after an intolerance test showed that she (and her three children) were sensitive to the food groups.
More recently, however, Kourtney has decided to reintroduce them to her diet. Her younger sister Kim Kardashian has cut out gluten, diary, and sugar after speaking to celebrity nutritionists.
