Are Food Allergies Only a Problem for Children?

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Jan 24, 2019 2:16:35 PM

Food allergies have often been thought of as a childhood affliction but a recent study reveals this isn't necessarily the case.

The study, reported on by Dr. Ruchi Gupta and her colleagues in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Network Open, involved collecting food allergy survey results from over 40,000 adults and the data revealed some surprising information.

According to the results, 10.8% of the 40,000 adults surveyed reported symptoms consistent with food allergy and an additional 8.2% believed they had some type of food allergy, however their symptoms suggested other causes. This means that one out of every five adults has some type of food related symptoms that are causing them to avoid specific foods. The most common foods causing allergies in this survey were shellfish, milk, peanuts, tree nuts and fish.
