More Information On Food Allergy

To help clear up a common misconception, food intolerance is a digestive system response, whereas a true food allergy is an immune system response. Although some symptoms of both food allergies and food intolerances are the same (primarily gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, stomach pain, and diarrhea), others are unique to either food intolerances or food allergies. Most notably, anaphylaxis, which can lead to death, is the most severe possible repercussion of a food allergy. This is why it's important for food allergic individuals to consistently monitor the foods they are around and consume.

This also means staying vigilant when eating out or in the case of children, eating at school or daycare. For those with for severe food allergies, it is now common to always carry an auto injector. An auto injector can provide emergency treatment in case of accidental exposure, buying precious time until professional treatment is obtained. The Ana-Tote and Ana-Tote Twin help food allergic adults and children alike keep their auto injectors safely with them.
