Food allergies

Every food intolerance is unpleasant, but not every one is dangerous. After all, 1-3% of adults and 5-8% of children have a true food allergy. The IgE immunoglobulins in the blood are then directed against an allergen in the food.

In case of real food allergies, itching and swelling in the mouth area, asthma, or circulatory failure can quickly be the result. With the allergen microchip test we can distinguish whether you are sensitized to more or less dangerous allergens and give specific diet recommendations.

If you have already had a severe allergic reaction with, for example, shock after eating an allergen, we prescribe an emergency kit. Training in its use for allergy sufferers and related family and friends is very important. HERE is a VIDEO for children and parents on how to use the Epipen in allergic shock.

In order to assess the risk of a further reaction or to determine if tolerance to the food has been established, the basophil activation test (BAT) can be helpful. The very good significance has led to the fact that fewer oral provocations are necessary to estimate the risk.
