The role of Food allergies increasing Food-associated Anaphylaxis

A negative immunologic reaction to a dietary protein is what is meant by a food allergy. Food-related reactions are associated to a wide range of physical manifestations, including those that affect the skin, gastrointestinal, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. Food allergy is one of the primary causes of anaphylaxis; hence an allergist should be consulted for an accurate and timely diagnosis and course of treatment because food allergy is one of the main causes of anaphylaxis. A thorough history and diagnostic procedures, such as serum-specific Immunoglobulin-E (IgE) testing, skin prick testing, and, if necessary, oral food challenges are used to make the diagnosis. Once a food allergy has been diagnosed, it is usually necessary to completely eliminate the offending food allergen from the diet. The preferred form of treatment for patients with severe systemic symptoms is intramuscular injection of epinephrine into the lateral thigh. Despite the fact that most kids "grow out of" milk, egg and soy allergies.
