About 11 Percent of U.S. Adults Have Food Allergy

With the abundance of speciality foods available, like gluten-free, nut-free, or dairy-free products, it seems that nearly everyone is allergic to something.

"While we found that one in 10 adults have food allergies, almost twice as many adults think that they are allergic to foods", Gupta said in a news release, adding that there's the possibility undiagnosed subjects may still be experiencing some sort of food-related condition. Researchers found that a significant number of adults in the United States have food allergies-and a significant number mistakenly think they do. However, only 10.8 percent of those people exhibited symptoms that are medically associated with being food allergic. In short, only half of US adults who think they have a food allergy have actually been diagnosed by a doctor, and less than a quarter have a prescription for epinephrine (a common treatment for allergies).

Through online and phone surveys, more than 40,000 adults reported whether they had a food allergy. Then, they revealed whether this assessment was self-diagnosed or determined through a test at the doctor's office.

People not exhibiting convincing food allergies reported other symptoms like stomach cramps, a stuffy nose and nausea, which are not considered "convincing".

Still, make no mistake: One of the major takeaways of this study is that "food allergies are common and severe among USA adults, often starting in adulthood". "More research is needed to understand why this is occurring and how we might prevent it".

So what's the difference between the two?

An allergy, on the other hand, involves the immune system and is much more severe, says Dr. Purvi Parikh, allergist/immunologist with Allergy & Asthma Network. When reported symptoms are inconsistent with real life-threatening reactions.

"These findings suggest that it is crucial that adults with suspected food allergy receive appropriate confirmatory testing and counseling to ensure food is not unnecessarily avoided", reads the report.

These days, it can seem like just about everybody has a food allergy.

But bloating and skin rashes a few hours after eating certain food, though undesirable, do not necessarily equal hypersensitivity. This will help you pinpoint the trouble and the doc can help you figure out how to eat-discomfort-free-in the future.
