Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the difference between a food allergy and a food intolerance?                                                                                                      Food allergy involves an immune system response that can be severe and potentially life-threatening, while food intolerance generally leads to digestive system discomfort and is less severe.

How are food allergies diagnosed? 
Diagnosis typically involves a combination of methods, including patient history, elimination diets, skin prick tests, blood tests for specific immune system responses, and oral food challenges under medical supervision.

Can food allergies go away over time?
Some food allergies, particularly in children, such as milk and egg allergies, may resolve with age. However, allergies to nuts, fish, and shellfish are more likely to be lifelong.

Is it necessary to avoid all foods that cause any allergic reaction?
Yes, avoiding foods that trigger an allergic reaction is crucial to prevent serious health consequences. Even small amounts of the allergen can cause a reaction in sensitive individuals.

How can I prepare for a food allergy test?
Prior to testing, you may be asked to stop taking certain medications that could interfere with the results, such as antihistamines. It’s important to follow the specific instructions provided by the testing center.
