The terms “Food Allergy” and “Food Sensitivity” both have different meanings. Food allergies have to do with a specific immune system response which generally occurs when a person eats a certain type (or multiple types) of food.
Food sensitivity is a more general term referring to unpleasant reaction to certain types of food (bloating, gassiness, etc.).
Food allergies involve either the immunoglobulin E (or IgE) antibody or T-cells.
The Importance of Understanding Your Food Allergy
When it comes to allergies, allergy testing is wholly necessary in determining the root cause of your allergic reaction and symptoms. Did you know that allergies can evolve over time? That’s why it’s important to have a professional medical practitioner identify what has been causing your reactions so your symptoms can stop interfering with your life and your physical (and mental) wellness.
Allergy testing might come in a variety of forms, including skin prick testing, as well as skin patch testing. Controlled tests are the most effective and reliable way of exposing allergens. Controlled testing also allows your body’s response to be monitored in a safe environment.
