    Introduction to Food Allergens & Allergies

    A food allergy is an abnormal immune response to food. The immune system mistakenly identifies a food protein as harmful and produces antibodies to fight it. When the person eats the food again, the antibodies bind to the food protein and release histamine, a chemical that causes allergic symptoms.

    Food allergies can range in severity from mild to severe. Mild symptoms may include hives, itching, and swelling of the tongue or lips. More severe symptoms may include difficulty breathing, wheezing, and anaphylaxis, a life-threatening reaction.

    Food allergens are substances in food that can trigger an allergic reaction. The eight most common food allergens are:

    • Milk

    • Eggs

    • Fish

    • Shellfish

    • Tree nuts

    • Peanuts

    • Wheat

    • Soy

    These foods are responsible for over 90% of all food allergies.

    Common Food Allergy Symptoms

    Food allergy symptoms can vary from person to person and can range in severity from mild to severe. Some people may only experience mild symptoms, such as hives or itching, while others may experience more severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing or anaphylaxis.

    The most common food allergy symptoms include:

    • Skin reactions: hives, itching, eczema, swelling of the lips, face, tongue, or throat

    • Digestive problems: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain

    • Respiratory problems: wheezing, difficulty breathing, coughing, tightness in the chest

    • Anaphylaxis: a severe allergic reaction that can be life-threatening

    How Allergies are Diagnosed?

    To avoid unnecessary dietary restrictions and ensure proper management, it is crucial to accurately diagnose food allergies. This typically involves the following steps:

    • Medical history

    • Physical examination

    • Skin prick test

    • Food allergy blood test

    • Elimination diet

    • Oral food challenge

    Importance of Food Allergy Blood Tests in Bangalore

    Food allergies pose a significant concern in Bangalore, affecting around 10-15% of children and 2-5% of adults. These allergies can manifest with a wide range of symptoms, including severe and life-threatening reactions.

    A food allergy blood test is a safe and efficient method for diagnosing food allergies. It gauges the levels of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in your bloodstream. IgE antibodies are produced by your immune system in response to allergens. Elevated IgE levels for a specific food indicate an allergy.

    • Accuracy: Food allergy blood tests are more accurate than skin prick tests, reducing the chances of false positives.

    • Convenience: They can be conducted at any time without special preparation.

    • Affordability: Bangalore offers competitive prices for food allergy blood tests, making them increasingly accessible.

Food allergies engage the immune system and can pose life-threatening risks, whereas food intolerance primarily affects the digestive system and is generally not life-threatening.
