Basics Of Food Allergy

Introduction And Background Allergies are a pretty common reaction that people have against something that their body does not agree with or never gets accustomed to. Some people have an allergic reaction from pollen during the spring season and every year they have a runny nose during it, unless they are taking some sort of medication to improve their condition or desensitize themselves. Some people are allergic to bee stings and can actually have an anaphylactic shock in which epinephrine has to be given as a life-saving drug. However, having food allergies are an entirely different entity and one has to be super careful with a food allergy. What are food allergies and what foods are commonly involved and how one can handle such situations; you’ll find it all in the article below.

Allergy Towards Food This does not mean that one has an allergy towards all foods but actually some nutrients in some foods or some kind of foods that can cause an adverse reaction in the body. The most common example is being lactose intolerant which is becoming increasingly common and awareness has also been multifold. Those children who are genetically lactose intolerant cannot digest it and generally have to have items without lactose in it whether it is milk or biscuits or even cereals. There are people who are allergic towards seafood or some kind of fish perhaps and they have a bloating and swelling reaction almost immediately after consumption of the item. Allergy towards food is not uncommon and many people around the world have it; it is not something out of the ordinary.

Common Foods Against Which Allergy Is Found There are some common foods which do not come as a surprise when mentioned in allergic reactions. You already know about lactose and seafood. Here are some of the others:

  • An allergy towards peanuts is very common as well. There are quite a number of children who have developed this allergy their parents generally inform the school and educate the child too on how they should not have peanuts as a precautionary measure.
  • Other than peanuts, other dry fruit also deem an allergic reaction in some people such as walnuts or soybeans or almonds even.
  • Some people are allergic towards eggs and have to be careful in not having any item which might have eggs in it which even includes cakes and biscuits. It could bring an adverse reaction which one definitely would not want.
  • Wheat intolerance is also pretty common and the person who has this allergy cannot have any other product which has wheat in it such grains of barley or rye or even gluten. It could really harm the health.

How To Manage Food Allergies? Managing food allergies takes a little getting used to but it is not that difficult, especially if those around you know as well that you’re allergic to the item as well. Here are a few things that you can do in order to manage your allergy.

  • You have to first tell yourself that there is no medication that can prevent your allergy and make you react well to that food. You cannot take any drug and then start having peanuts if you’re allergic to them. If you are allergic, that means you shouldn’t have them at all costs.
  • Know what triggers you. Usually it takes people a long time to figure out that they are allergic and it wasn’t just a stomachache. Usually when children or babies start throwing up milk consistently and cannot seem to digest it then doctors run some tests to find out what is causing the reaction.
  • Once you know what is causing the allergy, try to do some research on it and then ensure that you have no item in the house that might do some damage and if you do then it should be known that you cannot have it. For instance, lactose intolerant people need to be strictly aware of what food items have lactose in them so that there is no mistake later on or any accident of intake.
  • For those who have children with allergies, they need to inform their children about it and to explain the situation wisely. It is also best to inform the school and the teacher about the allergy to avoid any unforeseen harm.

Conclusion Food allergies are nothing to be scared of or upset about. As long as you are managing the situation, it will not cause you any harm. However, some people do feel that it is irritating to always check a product and see whether or not it has the item they’re allergic to but they must remember that it is for their own safety and good and in the long run this habit will lead them to live a better and safer life.
