Allergy is a growing problem in the United States. Individuals suffer from food and environmental allergies at rapidly growing rates, not to mention having issues related to food intolerances and sensitivities.
Allergies occur when a person’s immune system detects a “foreign invader” entering the body. From grains and dog hair to wasp stings and flower pollen, there are a number of substances and environmental elements that can trigger diverse “allergic reactions” in different people. In other words, what might be safe for one individual could possibly even be deadly for another.
Allergies are grouped by the kinds of triggers that bring symptoms on, the time of year and where symptoms appear on the body. Types of allergies include: indoor and outdoor (also called “hay fever,” “seasonal,” “perennial” or “nasal”), food, latex, insect, skin and eye.
Although there is not a common “cure” for allergies, many symptoms can be managed and issues can avoided. Determining what’s causing the allergic reaction is the first step in managing allergies. Many people suffer from allergies and can and do live healthy and active lives.
Reactions can range from simple skin rashes, sneezing, and watery eyes to more severe conditions like anaphylactic shock and even death. Food allergies, sensitivities or intolerances are often not even detected as a problem by an outward, visible sign. Continued consumption of the foods that are causing issues (cell inflammation), can manifest as another illness.
If you’re experiencing unexplained discomfort, seasonal allergy symptoms, or more severe allergic reactions, you need quick and accurate allergy testing to identify your condition and to develop a treatment plan with your physician.
