Food Allergy and Sensitivity Test could make All Difference for your Intestinal Health

by Immu Food Executive
Food allergy was earlier hard to diagnose but thanks to highly advanced food allergy testing procedure, now it is better understood and treatable. Allergic reactions to food are pretty obvious and trigger an immediate immune system response but food sensitivity is more subtle and lead to unrelated symptoms that appear days later. Food sensitivity is less serious yet more common compared to food allergies and is also harder to diagnose.

People may be allergic or sensitive to a food for several reasons like their gut may not have the right enzymes to digest the food, they may be reacting to food additives or artificial ingredients, they could have a reaction to the pesticides used on that food, they may be sensitive to chemicals or caffeine found in the food or they could be reacting to the toxins naturally found in certain legumes. Some of the typical symptoms of food allergic reaction include hives, sinus congestion, runny nose, chest tightness, heartburn, diarrhea and abdominal pain.

IgA, IgE and IgG immune refer to immunoglobulins or antibodies that are part of our immune system and are produced in response to things that we come in contact on daily basis. Antibodies are made by our body to fight against substances like bacteria and viral cells and to also respond to foods, dust, dander, and pollen. food allergy testing is done through blood testing to know food items and other allergens that must be avoided in the diet to prevent allergic reactions from occurring.

Based on the patient's symptoms, doctor make a clinical diagnosis after which they order allergy tests to  confirm the diagnosis. The most common test that is used to diagnose a food allergy is blood test that is done to measure the antibody levels in reaction to different foods. The blood sample of the patient is exposed to different components of food that can cause an allergy. If the patient's blood bind to the allergens, then the patient is found to be allergic of that food. Food allergy can be managed only by avoiding such foods that cause allergy. 

Thus, it becomes essential to identify and remove reactionary foods from the diet so that the person is able to resume normal function and carry out their regular work.
