What is a food allergy?

Food allergy is a medical condition that usually occurs when the body’s immune system sees food as harmful and reacts by causing different symptoms.

Why Should You Take Food Allergy Seriously?

Allergic reactions to food are being reported daily, and some of the responses are serious and can be life-threatening. Food allergy produces an immediate adverse reaction; i.e., within seconds or minutes after ingesting certain foods, it produces symptoms such as rashes, sneezing, and difficulty in breathing. Hence it requires food allergy testing and immediate treatment.

What’s The Main Reason For Food Allergy? Why Does It Occur?

One of the main reasons food allergic reactions occur and why you need food allergy testing is that the body mistakenly sees food as a threat. Learn about this in detail:

  • The body’s immune system overreacts to an allergen (an allergen is known as a protein that causes food allergy) by producing antibodies, and these antibodies fight off that threat.
  • Antibodies are proteins the immune system makes to fight antigens, such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins.
  • This immediate–response allergy reaction is known as Immunoglobulin E (Type – IgE). IgE-mediated food allergies (eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and wheat) are most common in infants and children.
  • The allergic reaction can involve the eyes, mouth, brain, heart, lungs, gut, and skin; its symptoms usually range from mild to severe.
  • A severe symptom of a food allergy requiring food allergy testing can lead to a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis & if not treated right away, it will cause potentially life-threatening complications.
  • Usually, histamine is involved in anaphylaxis; treatment with antihistamines will not prevent the more severe complications of anaphylaxis. Currently, Epinephrine is the suggested medication drug for treating anaphylaxis.

What are the common food allergies symptoms?

Signs and symptoms of food allergy range from commonplace to extreme and may include:

  • Skin rash (Eczema)

  • A drop in blood pressure
  • Shock or circulatory collapse
  • Weak pulse
  • Anaphylaxis, it’s a potential life-threatening reaction that can impair breathing and send the body into shock; reactions may simultaneously affect different parts of the body.

Symptoms normally appear within a few minutes to a couple of hours after ingesting the allergenic food, but in some cases they may not appear until days later.

Food Allergies Testing: How Does It Work?

Food allergy testing at Health Culture is a smooth and efficient procedure with the most reasonable food allergy test price. We do food diagnoses based on patients’ medical history. Our food allergy testing for food allergy consists of the following:

Elimination Diet:
An elimination diet is a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating potential food allergens from your diet. By removing specific foods and then gradually reintroducing them, this test helps pinpoint triggers for allergic reactions. Health Culture guides you through this food allergy testing, ensuring a customized and effective elimination diet for precisely identifying food allergies.

Skin-Prick Testing:
Skin-prick testing is a quick and minimally invasive food allergy testing method to identify potential allergens. A small amount of allergen extract is applied to the skin, and the skin is pricked to allow the extract to enter. The development of a small bump or redness indicates a positive reaction. At Health Culture, our skilled allergists conduct skin-prick testing precisely, offering a reliable and efficient method for diagnosing food allergies.

Patch Testing:
Patch testing is beneficial for identifying delayed allergic reactions. Small amounts of allergens are applied to patches and placed on the skin for a specified period. Any resulting skin reactions are carefully examined to determine allergen sensitivity. Health Culture employs patch food allergy testing as part of our comprehensive approach to ensure thorough evaluation and accurate identification of potential food allergens.

Blood Testing:
Blood testing for food allergies involves analyzing a blood sample for the presence of specific antibodies produced in response to allergens. This method provides a comprehensive overview of potential food sensitivities. Health Culture utilizes advanced blood testing techniques to deliver accurate results.

Oral Food Challenge:
This specific food allergy testing is conducted under the supervision of an allergist. They meticulously review your medical history and assess symptoms or reactions noted after food ingestion. If recurring symptoms are identified, an oral food challenge is initiated. This controlled exposure helps determine the extent of sensitivity and guides the allergist in formulating a tailored treatment plan. At Health Culture, we prioritize the safety and precision of oral food challenges, ensuring a thorough evaluation of food allergy responses.
