Allergy Medicine Guide
As reaction to certain substances in the food which you eat, mostly protein, your immune system produces antibodies which in turn may be the cause of an allergic reaction.
The first symptoms of allergy do not occur at the first occasion you are exposed to the allergen. In the beginning your immune system misidentifies allergens as being something that is not harmful to you. The first signals from your body influence the production of antibodies by your immunological system, which destroys these allergens. These antibodies are also known as IgE immunoglobulin E.
So the first exposure to the allergen will not cause the same symptoms as the second or subsequent exposure will. This means that when you have multiple exposers to the allergen, you may feel auto-reaction of your immune system with producing IgE antibodies. These antibodies are bonding to the allergen and after their first bonding they are circulating through the body and meeting with cell's types known as basil cells and mast cells. They are important factors in inflammation control and contain chemical substances known as histamine.
Connection of IgE antibodies and allergens that are attached with basil cells as well as with mast cells too, cause change in cell membranes, which is a cause of substance's leaking out into the surrounding tissues. A result of this is one of the most common symptoms of allergy which is called inflammation.
Every person is affected differently with allergies. So, there are people who may get food allergies, caused by food, or better said with substances contained in the food which they eat.
