Allergy vs. Intolerance

It is very common to hear about someone allergic to peanuts or shellfish or someone intolerant to lactose, but what is the difference between the two? The immune system. When someone has a true food allergy, their immune system activates, sending out body–wide signals indicating an allergic reaction. Intolerance can also cause uncomfortable symptoms but does not involve an immune response and tends to be less severe than an allergy. While symptoms from a food allergy are immediate, symptoms from food allergy are immediate, and symptoms from food intolerance show up later. The top eight foods people are allergic to include peanuts, milk, eggs, shellfish, tree nuts, soy, wheat and fish. If you have a personal concern about a food allergy or intolerance, reach out to your primary care provider.
