Food allergies result when foods and their protein components are not completely digested. When these components are absorbed by your body, your immune system doesn’t recognize them as nutritional and beneficial. As a result, your body responds defensively by producing antibodies and starting a cascade of reactions which can affect several tissues and organs. Many people are affected by food allergies in Boca Raton.
If you’re experience symptoms like tingling or itching in the mouth, hives, itching or eczema, swelling of the lips, face, tongue, throat or other parts of the body, wheezing, nasal congestion or trouble breathing, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, you should consider taking a test for food allergies in Boca Raton.
