Abnormal reaction to certain foods that can manifest in a number of different ways. The 2 types of common food allergies are:
Type I Allergy (IgE-mediated): Presents with classical allergy symptoms of rashes, sneezing and shock. The allergic foods are usually obvious and must be avoided for life. For example peanut allergies.
Type III Allergy (IgG-mediated): Delayed on-set and cause chronic inflammation, which can make it difficult to identify the allergic foods. Symptoms may include gas, bloating, irritable bowels, itching and eczema. Even anxiety, depression, headache/migraines, fatigue, high blood pressure, joint pain, arthritis, muscle aches and weight problems can be due to food allergies. Luckily, it is possible to recover from Type III Allergy.
