Food AllergyThe foods you may eat may be impacting your health in more ways than you know

When we consider adverse food reactions, we typically think of hives, swelling, or even anaphylactic shock—the immediate responses associated with allergies to common offenders like peanuts or shellfish. Known as Immunoglobulin E (IgE) – mediated reactions, these food allergies are easy to identify because of their immediate onset.

Did you know

That many non-seemingly related conditions from IBS and digestive problems to migraines and mood disorders to acne and eczema—may actually be correlated to adverse food reactions as well.

But what about the less obvious symptoms caused by the foods we eat?
Unlike food allergies, reactions from food sensitivities may occur hours or even days after eating the offending food. Delayed food sensitivities, known as IgG-mediated reactions, are sometimes blamed on aging or other environmental factors. Most sufferers are unaware that their symptoms are related to the foods they are eating.

Thankfully, your healthcare provider can help you to recognize the symptoms of a food sensitivity and offer testing options to identify trigger foods. Food sensitivity testing reduces the time and hassle of an elimination diet, and most tests can be performed using a blood draw or dried blood spot collected by a simple finger stick. Once you’ve identified the source of your symptoms, you can take action and start to feel better
