How is pesticide food poisoning diagnosed?

Pesticide food poisoning is usually diagnosed by the symptoms. However, sometimes it is difficult to diagnose this condition as it mimics the symptoms of asthma, regular food poisoning, and heat exhaustion. If you suspect that you have pesticide food poisoning, be sure to tell your doctor about any food you have recently eaten or any pesticides you have handled. Your doctor may be able to give a diagnosis based on the information you provide him.
