Allergy and Autoimmune Disorders

An allergic reaction is the response of our hypersensitive immune system against allergens, which are typical foreign harmless substances. Allergens can enter our body through inhalation, food, water, drinks, and sometimes, even on touching them.  Our immune system protects our body from invading organisms that can cause infections. However, early exposure to allergens is protective in nature, while late exposure can sometimes cause distress and can result in allergy. Treatment for allergic reactions includes mostly evading allergens and use of antihistamines and steroids. However, in severe allergies, adrenaline/ epinephrine are to be injected. In cases of an acute hypersensitive immune system, Allergen immunotherapy is recommended which exposes the immune system to large quantities of potential allergens gradually; however, this therapy is not used to treat food allergies. The immune system reacts to the allergen by producing Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies and attach to mast cells which release histamine and other chemicals thereby causing an allergic reaction.
