Food Allergy

Food allergy is important as it can cause illness and rarely even be fatal.

Some people mistake food intolerance for food allergy. Food intolerance (such as lactose intolerance or food poisoning) is an abnormal reaction to food, and can resemble food allergy.

Food allergies can be avoided by identifying the food or foods which cause the symptoms. This may require blood tests or skin testing.

Treatment includes antihistamines, treatment for asthma, and sometimes even adrenaline. There are prescriptions available for self-administration of adrenaline.

Knowing what foods you are allergic to is your best first choice in the prevention of food allergy.
