Inflammation is actually an immune response. Histamines trigger inflammation. So when you eat foods that you’re allergic to, inflammation occurs as a result. If you are often exposed to an allergen you respond to, research shows you may experience chronic inflammation, which can in turn cause other health issues. Allergies are often misunderstood, and people will erroneously self-diagnose. If you suspect you may be allergic to a food, talk to your doctor. Not sure what signs to look for? If you experience any of these symptoms, you may have developed a new food allergy.
