Causes of Food allergy

They are caused by various organic chemicals occurring naturally in a wide variety of foods, animal and vegetable, more often than to food additives, preservatives, colourings and flavourings, such as sulphites or dyes.  Both natural and artificial ingredients may cause adverse reactions in sensitive people if consumed in sufficient amounts, the degree of sensitivity varying between individuals.

Our health care team can provide you home tests for allergy of 44 foods.

Inhalant Allergy

Inhalants Profile is a blood test that measures IgE antibodies for common indoor and outdoor inhalants (for 44 allergens). An Inhalant test can help you identify whether an allergen is triggering some common symptoms associated with:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy eyes, ears, lips, throat and palate, conjunctivitis
  • Severe wheezing
  • Coughing, wheezing, asthma
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sinus problems
  • A sore palate
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Nettle-like rash
  • Swelling
  • Vomiting, & diarrhoea
  • Skin rash or hives

When an allergic person comes across allergens, their immune system believes that the allergen will cause damage to body and produces a special type of antibody (IgE) to attack the invading material. This stimulates other fighting blood cells to release further chemicals such as histamine which together cause the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Few of the allergens that might cause issues in your immune system are

  • Pollen from trees and grasses
  • House dust mites
  • Molds, Aspergillus
  • Pets such as cats and dogs
  • Insects like wasps, cockroach and bees
  • Industrial and household chemicals
  • Medicines
  • Foods such as eggs, milk, gluten, Wheat Pollen and nuts
  • Latex
  • Bermuda Grass, Orchard Grass etc.

  • Feeling Unwell
  • Stomach Ache
  • Bloating / Swelling

  • respiratory complaints including asthma,
  • rhinitis and headache
  • functional dyspepsia
  • eosinophilic esophagitis

What to do if I have food intolerance?

Symptoms improve by controlling foods that cause mild intolerance to stopping all together (in case of severe intolerance) then by introducing these foods slowly as part of the diet after a few months.
