ALLERGIES VS SENSITIVITIES
Classical allergy is an example of an immune-based sensitivity reaction. It is usually an immediate reaction (within 30 minutes) and involves a special subset of immune antibodies called IgE.
These antibodies trigger the release of histamine, giving all the classic symptoms of allergy i.e. swelling of the lips, mouth and throat, skin rash, itching, hives and respiratory symptoms.
These symptoms can vary in intensity and in extreme cases may lead to anaphylaxis, which could be fatal.
Some allergic reactions are more delayed and occur up to 48 hours after exposure to the substance. These reactions may be immune-based (allergy), or a non-immune (sensitivity) physiological reaction.
The immune-based delayed reactions usually involve different subsets of antibodies called IgG or IgM.
They present with more diverse symptoms such as skin reactions, headaches, fatigue and gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation.
The Food Intolerance and Environmental Sensitivity Test is a comprehensive sensitivity screen that will identifying triggers for intolerance reactions. It is able to identify reactivity to a broad range of substances including foods, beverages, food additives and environmental compounds.
