Dairy allergies are believed to be the most common of all food related allergies and affect millions of people worldwide. People who suffer from dairy allergies have to watch their diets very carefully according to their known sensitivities. More time than not, a diary allergy is confused with milk or lactose intolerance, however an allergy to dairy related products can lead to severe symptoms to include hives, respiratory difficulties and even anaphylactic shock.
Persons who suffer from this form of food allergy have accidentally ingested a dairy product in some form and died before reaching a hospital. This type of severe allergy is actually related to the protein found in cow’s milk which can cause a more severe reaction than an intolerance which is normally caused by sugars found in milk. While symptoms of milk intolerance may be uncomfortable, it is normally not life threatening.
Ongoing dairy allergies can damage the digestive tract and cause a deficiency in the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells lining the digestive tract. Many people mistakenly believe that they can continue to eat dairy products as long as they take an oral digestive aid but usually receive temporary relief. Unfortunately, most continue to suffer from their dairy allergies even though their digestive symptoms have diminished.
Persons who know they have a lactose intolerance should be tested for a dairy allergy via a blood test from a allergy specialist.
