The Latest Research on Food Allergies Might Expand Your (Meal) Horizons
So, how do you know if a food that previously made you break out in hives or messed with your digestive system is okay to eat? It turns out, there's a test for that, which measures a person's IgE levels. (That's science speak for a specific type of antibody.) The higher the level, the more allergic you are.
The way researchers ran the test with their participants was giving them a teeny tiny bit of the allergy-inducing food, and if there were no symptoms, having the participant eat a little bit more, and then a little bit more. And the vast majority of them were able to start eating their no-no foods again.
So no matter what you're allergic to, it's encouraging that it might not be that way for life. Hello, post-workout peanut butter snack!
