Salt Lake City, UT | Comparing Food Allergy and Food Sensitivity | Cameron Wellness Spa

Do you know the difference between a food allergy and food sensitivity? The term food allergy is a bit of a misnomer, since with a true food allergy the immune response is rapid, often leading to anaphylactic symptoms of throat swelling, itchiness, hives, and difficulty breathing. A more accurate term is food sensitivity, where unlike an IgE immune-mediated allergy response, you immune system creates an IgG immune-mediated response. An IgG response is much subtler and slower to respond, which makes it easier to miss the connection between food and how you are feeling. Visit us online at to learn more!
