Food Allergy and Gastrointestinal Infections

Food allergy is an immune system reaction that occurs due to certain proteins found in food. Even a tiny amount of allergy-causing food can trigger signs and symptoms such as hives or swollen airways, digestive problem. In a few people, a food allergy can cause severe symptoms or even can be frightening such as anaphylaxis which is a life-threatening reaction. Food allergy affects an estimated 5 to 7 percent of children under age 3 and up to 3 percent of adults. While there’s no cure, few children grow with their food allergy as they get older. Food allergy includes itchiness, vomiting, diarrhea, hives, trouble breathing, swelling of the tongue, or low blood pressure. Food allergies are more common in male children than females and appear to be increasing in frequency. Some allergies are commonly developed in early life, while others typically develop later in life.
