Find Alaska Allergist, children misdiagnosed with ADHD could be suffering from food allergies, hidden food sensitivities, food preservatives & dyes.
An Allergist is a physician specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies.
A person can be allergic to nearly anything so check for all forms. Food is one of the primary causes of allergic reactions. If a child eats food they are allergic to, the body will not run properly and that may affect behavior.
Diagnosis of food allergies is fairly easy and certain. A blood test called a RAST or ELIZA can detect the presence of a specific IgE and identify the allergic food(s). It cannot however, pick up the presence of other immunoglobulins, like Immunoglobulin G (IgG), which is associated with delayed allergic reactions.
Approximately 90 percent of all food allergies are caused by eight foods, including the following: milk, eggs, wheat, soy, tree nuts, fish, shellfish and peanuts.
The term "food allergy" refers to adverse immunologic reactions to food. Food allergy is usually mediated by IgE antibody directed to specific food proteins, but other immunologic mechanisms can also play a role. The primary target organs for food allergic reactions are the skin, the gastrointestinal tract and the respiratory system. Both acute reactions (hives and anaphylaxis) and chronic disease (asthma, atopic dermatitis and gastrointestinal disorders) may be caused or exacerbated by food allergy. The foods most commonly causing these reactions in children are milk, egg, peanuts, soy, wheat, tree nuts, fish and shellfish; in adults, they are peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish and fish. The diagnosis of food allergy requires a careful search for possible causes, confirmation of the cause(s) with supporting tests, including specific tests for IgE (i.e., prick skin tests, radioallergosorbent tests) and, in some cases, oral food challenges. Treatment consists of elimination of the causal food(s) along with medical treatment, including the prompt self-administration of epinephrine in the event of a serious reaction.
There are a couple of big differences between immediate food allergies and delayed food allergies, also called delayed food hypersensitivities.
