Know About Your Food Allergies – By Sanofi India

By Dr. Nikita Toshi +2 more

Food is an essential part of our lives and something we can’t live without (quite literally). Every individual has a favourite or two but imagine being told to refrain from eating it. Yes, you heard it right, your doctor asks you to give up your favourite food because you’re allergic to it. A tough one to swallow, isn’t it?

Know About Your Food Allergies - By Sanofi India

A food allergy cannot be identified as food intolerance. Food allergies are caused by proteins found in food to which your immune system overreacts. The fighting response from the body can lead to diarrhoea with other symptoms such as nausea and streaming eyes. Diagnosing food allergies can be challenging, but we’ve put together a few points to help you manage them.

Common items that give you food allergies 

Food allergy signs depend on how your body reacts to the food. While some may experience the same signs and symptoms, often they aren’t the same as another person. Although any food can cause an allergy, here’s a list of triggers that cause a food allergy 90% of the time:  

  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Peanut 
  • Various nuts like walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, etc.
  • Soy
  • Wheat
  • Fish
  • Shellfish

Food Allergy Symptoms

Food allergies can display several symptoms such as: 

  • Vomiting 
  • Stomach cramps
  • Hives
  • Breathing problems
  • Cough
  • Hoarse throat
  • Swelling of the tongue 
  • Dizziness/fainting 
  • Upset stomach/diarrhoea

Food allergies are dangerous but can be avoided and managed if proper care is taken.

Can kids get food allergies?

Yes, kids can get food allergies and in fact, they are more prone to it. One of the best solutions is to find what your kid is allergic to. You should consult your doctor to help you identify the food that is causing an allergic reaction in your child. If you’ve determined the ingredient that your kid is allergic to, make sure they don’t consume anything which has that particular ingredient. Giving a heads up to their teachers and guardians is always helpful to keep the allergies at bay.

Food allergy diagnosis

 Food allergies usually cause some reaction every time you consume a trigger food. Although symptoms vary from person to person, you may not experience the same symptoms every time. Food allergies can affect the skin, respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system causing a potentially life-threatening reaction.

To ensure you get the proper food allergy treatment, it’s important to let the doctor know about your medical history and your symptoms. 

Although there’s no specific food allergies treatment available, you can always avoid certain food items if you’ve had a problem/reaction before. If food allergy symptoms persist, please consult a doctor/physician to get the necessary medical attention.
