MoonDragon's Nutrition Information: Diets
ALLERGY & FOOD SENSITIVITY DIET




PURPOSE


The allergy and food sensitivity diet is a preliminary step in omitting some of the foods that cause an allergic reaction, either immediate or delayed. For more information see Allergies.




DESCRIPTION


The diet may be recommended once a recognized relationship has been established between a particular food or foods and a symptomatic reaction. Common signs and symptoms of food allergy include skin reactions (itching, erythema, hives, eczema, edema) or reactions of the gastrointestinal tract (vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain). Systemic anaphylactic reactions could include sneezing, wheezing, conjunctivitis, palpitations, cardiac arrhythmia, shock, or collapse. Reactions can be immediate, or take up to 72 hours to appear.






BASIC INFORMATION


The following information describes some of the more common food allergies (wheat, eggs, milk, corn). Other common allergies include: Seafood, nuts, legumes, chocolate, cola, citrus fruit, beef, white potatoes, pork, chicken, oatmeal, rye, mustard, garlic, tomatoes and cucumbers. The wheat-, egg-, corn- and milk-free diets commonly use an "elimination" approach to assess potential food allergies and intolerances. Elimination diets must be planned carefully and monitored regularly.




NUTRITIONAL ADEQUACY


If planned carefully, allergy diets are generally adequate in all nutrients. The exception would be the milk-free diet, which is inadequate in calcium and will likely require supplementation. The elimination diets can be deficient in calories, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals; therefore, long-term use is not advised and monitoring of nutritional sufficiency is essential.

NOTE: These diets should only be utilized under the guidance of a "nutritionally trained" health care provider.
