More Info About Food Allergies
Though you may be aware of your current food allergies based on past experience, there may be a food, spice, or ingredient that you’re not even aware that you’re allergic to. According to research, as many as 26 million adults in the U.S. have a food allergy, and over half of them don’t even realize it!
Food allergies occur when your body mistakenly identifies the proteins in that specific food as a harmful substance. Theoretically, any food can trigger an allergic reaction, but the most common food allergies are the following:
- Fish & shellfish
- Certain fruits and vegetables
- And tree nuts (like walnuts and pecans)
It’s currently unknown why people develop food allergies, but you’re more likely to develop them in your younger years or if you have a family history of food allergies. Our specialty labs in Rochester, MI, and other locations allow our providers to detect and diagnose a variety of food allergies. Our comprehensive list of food allergy testing includes:
- Wheat/Gluten Proteome Reactivity & Autoimmunity
- Gluten-Associated Cross-Reactive Foods and Foods Sensitivity
- Multiple Food Immune Reactivity Screen
- Chemical Immune Reactivity Screen
- And more!
