The term "food allergy" refers to adverse immunologic reactions to food. Food allergy is usually mediated by IgE antibody directed to specific food proteins, but other immunologic mechanisms can also play a role. The primary target organs for food allergic reactions are the skin, the gastrointestinal tract and the respiratory system. Both acute reactions (hives and anaphylaxis) and chronic disease (asthma, atopic dermatitis and gastrointestinal disorders) may be caused or exacerbated by food allergy.
The foods most commonly causing these reactions in children are milk, egg, peanuts, soy, wheat, tree nuts, fish and shellfish; in adults, they are peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish and fish.
Double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenges are considered the gold standard for diagnosing food allergy. The procedure is labor intensive but ALLERGY BEHAVIOUR CLINIC JAKARTA INDONESIA should be modified for DIAGNOSING FOOD ALLERGY by OPEN ELIMINATION DIET PROGRAM.
Treatment consists of elimination of the causal food(s) along with medical treatment, including the prompt self-administration of epinephrine in the event of a serious reaction.
Everyone experiences some of these symptoms once in a while, but it is the intensity and frequency that can indicate when it is not a normal condition.
Success with this program may make stopped medication unnecessary. If you are now using such medication, changing dosages on your own can be dangerous. Physician supervision is needed when changing psychoactive medications.
If any of these symptoms have appeared suddenly or if they are severe, consult a physician. It may be a symptom of some other, more serious, condition.
