Allergies and Intolerances

Alison Powell, ACUTE Dietitian

Allergies and intolerances can be difficult to differentiate between. Looking at different reactions that can occur with eating food as well at the severity of the body’s response is what distinguishes them. True allergies cause the body’s immune system to react harmfully. Intolerances are less critical and may be able to be included in the diet in small amounts. On some occasions there are also medications that can aid in absorption or tolerance of that food.
