😐 Don’t you just hate them? Common food allergies happen most often with children, but for adults it is possible to develop them as well. Symptoms of food allergies might include the following:

Stomach upset is typical with many of the common food allergies, and may include symptoms like cramps or diarrhea. In numerous cases, dizziness might also be a symptom. More severe allergy symptoms, also known as anaphylaxis, might include:

These symptoms require immediate medical attention, because anaphylaxis can become life-threatening very quickly.

DoctorBelieve it or not – it is always a wise thing to do to see your doc in case you think that you are suffering from a common food allergy. Even if your first reaction was mild in nature, it is possible that further exposures to the allergen can cause a more serious reaction to develop. Your doctor can utilize a number of various methods to attempt to determine whether you do really have a common food allergy and what precisely you are allergic to.

This can be accomplished through skin tests, blood tests, an overview of the food that you have consumed, and an elimination plan of taking certain foods out of your diet. Occasionally the accurate culprit of a common food allergy can be discovered, but other times it may be harder to pinpoint.

One piece of information that makes exact diagnosis a little bit easier is a list of the most common food allergies, as this is often a good place to begin in the testing process.

The Top 8

Eight foods have now been discovered as the most common food allergies and these include:

  1. Milk
  2. Eggs
  3. Peanuts
  4. Tree nuts
  5. Fish
  6. Shellfish
  7. Wheat
  8. Soy
     

FDAThis list of the top 8 most common food allergies explains around 90% of all of the food allergies diagnosed today. The good news is that the FDA has now required food manufacturers to list these eight allergens as ingredients in all food products so that people with these common food allergies can more effectively avoid their triggers in the food they consume.

Why this is important? Because avoidance of allergens is generally the best treatment option for the common food allergies.

 I tell you this for your own good – it is necessary to get in the habit of reading the labels on the foods that you consume, if you know that you have an allergy to one of these foods, because this might let you effectively avoid ingredients that you know you will have a reaction to.
