Food Allergies Treatment

Food allergies are common allergic reactions in our body. When your immune system reacts to certain proteins in food, it can lead to an allergic reaction. Some commonly noticed symptoms of food allergies include:

  • Low blood pressure
  • Swelling of the tongue, mouth, or face
  • Hives
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Itchy rashes
  • Difficulty in breathing

In severe cases of food allergies, it can lead to anaphylaxis (hypersensitive reaction to protein or drugs).

Antibody food allergies

Food allergies are divided into two main types that include IgE antibody and Non-IgE antibody.

Antibodies are a blood protein that help your immune system fight infections after recognizing them. In IgE food allergies, your immune system releases the IgE antibody to fight the infection.

In a non-IgE food allergy, your immune system uses other parts of the body to fight the infection without releasing the non-IgE antibody.

IgE mediated Food Allergy symptoms

People may notice symptoms that include:

  • Tingling and itching in the mouth
  • Swelling in the face, mouth, throat, and other areas of the body
  • Hay fever symptoms (sneezing or itchy eyes)
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Wheezing or shortness of breath
  • Hives
  • Nausea or vomiting

Non-IgE mediated Food Allergy symptoms

These allergies can take several days to show up. The symptoms may include:

  • Redness and itchy skin (hives)
  • Vomiting with or without diarrhea
  • Atopic eczema
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Constipation
  • Excessive and uncontrollable crying in babies
