🔍 Definition Food allergy manifests itself as a reaction of the immune system following the ingestion of a protein in a food. The substance in question is called an allergen. Antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE) as well as chemicals such as histamine are then released, and the symptoms can be various: rashes (eczema, urticaria), respiratory disorders (asthma, rhinitis), gastrointestinal discomfort (diarrhea, vomiting, esophagitis), and involvement of the nervous system (migraine). The most common food allergens are: peanuts nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews), milk, eggs, fish, seafood, soy, sesame seeds, wheat, mustard, and sulfites.
On the other hand, food intolerance does not provoke an immune reaction and results from an inability to digest or absorb certain food components. Lactose intolerance is the most common intolerance treated in a private consultation and is often subject to unnecessarily severe restrictions. Consultations for histamine intolerance are often due to confusion about the various information available on the internet, often resulting in the persistence of sources in the diet.
🚦 Complications The most severe complication of food allergies is anaphylactic shock, a situation that threatens the individual's life.Even ingestion of food particles can eventually trigger a reaction!
