What is a food allergy?
When our immune system mistakes certain foods to be harmful to the body, it shows symptoms by creating antibodies. These symptoms or the result of it is called Food allergy. This allergy can be triggered even when you consume small amounts of food. Usually, many get confused between food allergy and food intolerance. Food allergy is the body’s way of protecting you from any harmful attacks, and symptoms can affect the skin, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, or even the gastrointestinal tract.
Causes of food allergy:
Specific proteins in the foods are considered harmful by the immune system, and the body, to fight these off, releases chemicals and histamines. These releases are shown as allergic symptoms. The foods commonly considered to form allergies are milk, eggs, wheat, soy, peanut, fish, and tree nuts. Children are the typical group believed to be at high risk of allergies due to these foods.
Symptoms of food allergy:
Food allergies’ symptoms in children are very prominent. Generally, they occur immediately after consuming the food or within one to two hours after the immune system’s contact with the food allergen. Here are some of the typical allergic reactions that one can experience due to food allergy:
- Gastrointestinal symptoms like tingling and burning of the mouth/throat/ vomiting, abdominal cramps, etc.
- Respiratory issues like nasal congestion, sneezing, etc.
- There might be other discomforts like heart rhythm irregularities, anaphylaxis, low blood pressure or hypotension, etc.
