Allergy and Intolerance

What is an allergy?

An allergy is the body’s reaction to something that is normally a harmless substance to other people, like food, pollen or house dust mite. The Body’s immune system see the substance as a threat and unfortunately produces an inappropriate response.

Allergies fall into 2 categories, IgE and non-IgE allergies
