IgE mediated food allergies are a specific immune reaction to food proteins that results in the production of the antibody immunoglobulin E (also known as IgE) being produced. This creates a series of reactions and symptoms which can all trigger an anaphylactic response - which is a dangerous whole body allergic reaction.
IgE Mediated Symptoms may include the following:
What are the symptoms?
- Itching skin and eyes
- Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
- Congestion and coughing
- Asthma symptoms: difficulty breathing and wheezing
