Food Allergies and Intolerance

A food allergy is a unusual immune response to food . The symptoms of the allergic reaction may vary from mild to severe. They may include itchiness, swelling of the tongue, vomiting, diarrhea, low blood pressure. A food intolerance and food poisoning are two conditions, caused due to an improper immune response. Food hypersensitivity is used to refer both food intolerances and food allergies. Intolerance can result from the absence of specific chemicals or enzymes needed to digest a food substance and it may be a result of an defect in the body's capacity to absorb nutrients, as occurs in fructose malabsorption. Food allergies and Food intolerance usually have a fast onset and may include:

  • Diarrhea, abdominal pain, and stomach cramps
  • Swelling of lips, tongue, eyelids
  • Vomiting, itching, swelling, rashes
  • Pharmacologic, metabolic, and gastro-intestinal responses
