Geriatric Nutrition: Late - Onset Food Allergies by Larissa T. Brophy, MS, RDN, LD Today's Dietitian Vol. 17 No. 10 P. 76 elderly patients are at higher risk of Food Allergy due to their aging immune systems. As individuals age, so do their immune systems. With significant increase in life expectancy, it's projected that by 2050, more than 80 million adults will be aged 65 or older while another 20 million adults will be aged 85 or older. This rapidly growing geriatric population will experience immunosenescence, aging of the immune system. Immunosenescence affects the innate and adaptive immune system, causing specific changes in various cell types of the immune system. For mast cells, key cell type involved in Food Allergy reaction, aging reduces degranulation and causes dysregulation in function. The latter change can result in new Food Allergy development, whereas the former may diminish physical symptoms of food allergy and delay medical attention. Food allergy is an increasing health concern in the geriatric population. In elderly, prevalence of food allergies is estimated at 5% to 10%, 12 but is likely underestimated and underdiagnosed, and, thus, undertreated. Study Report that 24. 8% of geriatric Nursing Home patients were positive for food allergens. 3 4 It's speculated that 25% to 30% of adults SELF - diagnose food allergies, but the true prevalence is approximately 5% in industrialized countries. 4 5 Notably, food allergies can develop at any time and aren't limited to manifestation in the pediatric population. Foods commonly associated with adult food Allergy are fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, peanuts, and seafood, but aren't limited to these foods. The prevalence of fruit and vegetable allergies is thought to be the result of cross - reactivity with aeroallergens to birch, ragweed, and grass. In the elderly, confounding factors for Food Allergy development include decreased stomach acid and an age - related decrease in total serum immunoglobulin E. Conversely, alcohol consumption greater than 14 units per week significantly increases total serum IgE concentrations, which correlates with positive food allergen tests. These various factors may induce de novo sensitization to food allergens, increasing the need for continuous screening and diagnosis. In the geriatric population, typical diagnostics may be insufficient to detect food allergens but should continue to be starting point as shown in Table 1. Self - diagnosis needs to be eliminated because subsequent SELF - management may lead to nutritional inadequacy, potential nutrient deficiencies, and increased frailty from over - restricting food intake. Malnutrition, another significant concern for the elderly, plays a critical role in immune system maintenance and efficiency. Three micronutrients of concern are vitamin D, zinc, and iron. Insufficiency or deficiency in calcitriol, active form of vitamin D, may negatively affect food - related IgE reactions. Poor zinc bioavailability and in vivo homeostasis may further alter immune efficiency, favoring development of Food Allergies. Iron deficiency has also been associated with immune system issues, decreasing antibody responses and increasing risk of food allergy. In these cases, correcting any deficiencies through vitamin and / or mineral supplementation should improve outcomes and possibly reduce the incidence of any deficiency - related allergies.

Dont tolerate food intolerance

The most common food intolerances are:

TypeFound in
Lactose or milk proteinDairy (esp. cows milk)
Yeast ( Candida albicans )Breads and baked goods; can be exacerbated by sugar
Gluten (including both celiac and wheat sensitivity)Grains such as wheat, barley, and rye
FructoseFruit; foods sweetened with fructose (as well as sorbitol)

Many people say they are allergic to foods when they are actually intolerant. Food intolerance usually occurs when the gut reacts poorly to specific food or ingredient used in food preparation. Intolerances can result from absence of enzyme needed to fully digest food, such as with lactose intolerance. Food intolerance is not regarded as a sound diagnosis by much of the medical community. In part, this may be because symptoms of food intolerance are milder and usually have slower onset than food allergy. These symptoms can include gas / bloating, diarrhea, stomach cramping, stuffy nose, mucus production, nausea, vomiting, headaches, etc. While some of these symptoms are benign, serious gastrointestinal complaints are often characteristic of severe intolerance; if left uninvestigated, more serious problems can result. Common culprits in food intolerance tend to be foods eaten very regularly, like wheat, milk, corn, and, more recently, soy. Lactose intolerance is a common example. In people without enough lactase enzyme activity, undigested lactose from dairy products passes through the stomach into the intestines, where it must be ferment. Through this process, lots of gas form, causing stomach cramps, bloating, flatulence, and diarrhea. Compounding the problem, other symptoms can be the result of milk protein sensitivity. While casein protein have been implicated in more cases of milk protein problems than whey, both milk proteins can cause similar issues. This is because both casein and whey can cause excessive inflammatory response in some individuals, leading to mucus production. High mucus means blocked airways, stuffy noses, and thick throats. Unlike allergies in which sensitive people can react to minute quantities, food intolerance usually requires larger quantity of food to be consumed before symptoms arise. Intolerances are much more prevalent than food allergies; However, because symptoms are milder and often not immediate, people can be unsure which foods are causing problem. Thus, food intolerance testing is becoming more frequent. Eliminating and re - introducing suspect food in diet is a dependable way to assess food intolerance. It been estimated that 3 in 4 people have some form of food intolerance, whether mild or severe. And these intolerances are uniquely individual. Everything from nutrients and chemicals above, to specific minerals, to specific food additives can lead to a host of symptoms. Note that eating PN way, ie diet that is low in processed foods, can help eliminate many of these common food offenders. Another common type of food intolerance is Leaky Gut Syndrome. Lgs is poorly recognize, and rarely tested for, but fairly common. With LGS, intestinal lining becomes extremely permeable, meaning that it may allow large molecules and toxins to enter the body undigested. This is possible when intestinal lining becomes inflamed or damage, disrupting its normal functions. As a result, spaces develop between cell walls and macromolecules, antigens, and toxins sneak in. As these molecules, which should not be allowed to sneak in, invade GI wall more frequently, additional damage occurs, exacerbating the problem.

Symptoms

Food intolerance symptoms are varied and can be very disruptive to people's lives. They may occur when you experience a food - specific IgG reaction, which has been described as intolerance to particular food or drink. The body can produce a range of inflammatory responses if it incorrectly identifies ingredients as threat. The effects of food intolerance are very different to allergic reaction, which is an immediate reaction experienced by those suffering with food allergies. Unlike allergic reactions, immune responses associated with food intolerance are thought to be delayed for up to 72 hours. Understanding your own personal food and drink intolerances, and the effects they could have on your health and wellbeing, is important to ensure you make the best possible choices for your diet. Do you experience any of the symptoms above? If so, it may be that food intolerance is the root cause of the problem.

Causes

Consequences of food - induced activation of the immune system can initially be subtle, but may become serious over time. Continuous intake of reactive substances causes local micro - inflammation in intestinal tissue, which spreads insidiously and can manifest itself in other tissues. Therefore, ormonal -, nervous and metabolic systems can be affected and symptoms may manifest in varioush forms. This makes it complex and symptoms might not be identified with food intolerance as the initial cause. Table 1: Examples of diseases that are associated with food intolerance and activated innate immunity and inflammation, Alcat Europe GmbH list in table 1 reflects the experience of doctors from various disciplines and demonstrates an enormous variety of impacts of underlined chronic, food induces immune activation resulting in associated inflammatory processes. Often, in addition to present intolerance, over time other intolerances may occur, resulting in multiple intolerances influencing each other adversely.

Food additives and intolerance

To date, optimal management strategies for food additive intolerance include avoidance of increased intake of food additives in general, in particular in large amounts. For example, meals with ripened cheese, wine and colored dessert should be avoid. If a patient has skin and gastrointestinal symptoms, prophylactic intake of antihistamines might be useful. Diagnostic procedures involve elimination diet followed by Double Blind - Placebo - control - Food Challenge tests. Only if Double Blind - Placebo - control - Food Challenge is positive diagnosis proven and dietary recommendations are make. Previous data of patients suffering from Chronic Urticaria has indicated change in diet can facilitate gastrointestinal barrier recovery, which enables patients to include certain food items step by step again over time again.


Adverse Reactions to Food Additives

Food hypersensitivity is defined as an adverse reaction to food or food additive and can be mediated by two different mechanisms: immunologic and non - immunologic. Immunologic reactions are divided into 3 groups: IgE - mediate, non - IgE mediate or both. On contrary, non - immunologic reactions do not involve the immune system and they also define food intolerances. They subtend to metabolic, pharmacological, toxic and undefined mechanism.S Ige - mediate reactions are quite uncommon but can be severe and life - threatening. Natural additives contain molecules of sufficient molecular weight to induce IgE - mediate response. In contrast, synthetic additives are more likely to act like haptens, because of their low molecular weight. Haptens can induce IgE - mediate response only if they are attached covalently to large carrier molecule.

Diagnosis

Do you ever feel like you may have certain symptoms related to foods, such as headaches, stomach pain, diarrhea, or Fatigue? Do you feel you may want to try eliminating possible triggers, but you are not sure where to start? Our Food Sensitivity Test measures your bodyas IgG immune response to 96 common foods. The Temporary Elimination Diet is a way to help you pinpoint foods that may be causing your symptoms. This test is not the same as a food allergy test. Food allergies are mediated by IgE antibodies, and symptoms of food allergies typically occur within minutes to hours of exposure. These symptoms are often severe and potentially life - threatening. Food sensitivities, on the other hand, are often marked by low and slow onset, and involve entirely different antibodyaIgG. In addition, this test does not test for lactose intolerance, IBS, or celiac disease. Your body may have an immune response to foods you eat, which may manifest as physical symptoms. Some of our customers take the Food Sensitivity Test because they experience symptoms like: dry and itchy skin, feeling bloat after eating, fatigue, joint pain, migraines, headaches, Gastrointestinal distress, stomach pain and other miscellaneous skin problems. If you are looking to add potentially aproblematica food back into your diet to see if youare still reactive to it on your test results, itas recommend to consume that food for about 4 - 6 weeks prior to testing. All of the laboratories with whom we partner are considered industry leaders in their respective areas, with extensive histories and have performed millions of tests. All of them perform frequent internal quality controls and testing, as well as regular third - party testing for independent validation of the accuracy of their testing. Consistently, such validation shows high degree results correlation. Igg antibody reactivity is based on exposure to food or foods; therefore, individuals who have since eliminated aproblematica foods from their diet may see lower reactivity than expect. Everlywell will provide tailored suggestions about what to do next. While reactivity does not always equate with symptoms, it can help prioritize foods selected for the temporary Elimination Diet. Once you have your IgG Test results, you can try the Elimination Diet of your choosing until you achieve the right balance of minimizing your symptoms while maintaining a lifestyle that you enjoy. You may choose to not stop eating certain foods, but knowing your reactivity might lead to adjustments in how much or frequently you eat them. Our tests provide personalized information and education; they are not intended to diagnose any disease or condition or to substitute for professional medical advice or treatment. You should always seek advice from your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you have regarding your medical care. This test is a great place to start if you want to dig into your body's relationship with food and is generally more affordable than comparable tests. Enjoy Food Sensitivity testing the way it should be; quick, easy, and from the convenience of your home.


Food Allergy Overview

The very nature of the gut requires that its large mucosal surface is continually vulnerable to foreign substances, from food proteins to commensal bacteria and pathogens. The mucosal immune system is required to mount protective responses against pathogenic organisms and toxins, whilst not responding excessively to harmless commensal bacteria and food components. In health, physical properties of the gut, including gastric acid, digestive enzymes, mucosal integrity and mucus secretion, reduce penetration of ingested pathogens and food proteins. Innate immune system targets molecules common to many pathogens. There are also target responses from adaptive immune system to either tolerate or react to specific proteins, utilising lymphocytes, cytokines, secrete IgA and Gut associated Lymphoid Tissue. 17 18 this immune exclusion minimises the amount of potentially allergenic Protein taken up from the gastrointestinal tract, but nonetheless, more than 100 g of immunologically recognisable dietary Protein can still be absorbed by those following North American diets. 19 interaction of this protein load with the gastrointestinal immune system, particularly in early life, is key in determining response to individual proteins in future. Interplay of factors determines whether there will be mucosal IgA secretion response, systemic immune response, or local and systemic tolerance upon reexposure. Mechanisms leading to food protein tolerance are not fully understood, but tolerance involves active regulatory response mediated by regulator T cells, and clonal deletion which removes T cells with undesirable targets. Antigenpresenting macrophages and dendritic cells may be modulated by commensal bacteria, so they more readily secrete cytokines encouraging T Reg cell amplification and tolerance. Current theories behind tolerance and hypersensitivity are more thoroughly detailed by Brandtzaeg. 18 IgEmediated food allergy results when adaptive immune response that is effective in targeting parasites is instead mounted against food proteins. Food and other proteins enter the body by ingestion, inhalation and skin penetration. They are taken up by antigen presenting cells and present to T Helper cells. The resulting cytokine release determines whether there is predominant T H 1 or T H 2 response. T H 1 response is cellmediated response, effective against intracellular bacteria and protozoa. In contrast, T H 2 response targets parasites such as helminth with stimulation of eosinophils, basophils and mast cells, along with IgEproducing B cells. When food proteins inappropriately trigger T H 2, predominant response result is Type 1 hypersensitivity and IgEmediated food allergy. In IgEmediated allergy, exposure to trigger food brings about immediate and consistently reproducible effects on the gut, skin or respiratory system. Any protein can theoretically cause sensitisation, but the vast majority of these hypersensitivity reactions occur in same most common allergens. Common allergen proteins tend to be watersoluble glycopeptides with greater resistance to proteolytic enzymes, acid and heat. In children, cow's milk, egg, peanut,s soy, tree nuts, fish, shellfish and wheat account for 85% of all food allergies. However, many of these early onset allergies are associated with eventual development of tolerance and this leads to a different spectrum of allergies in adults.


Food Allergy Treatment & Management

While there's ongoing research to find better treatments to reduce Food Allergy symptoms and prevent allergy attacks, there isn't any proven treatment that can prevent or completely relieve symptoms. Oral immunotherapy. Researchers have been studying the use of oral immunotherapy as a treatment for Food Allergy. Small doses of food you are allergic to are swallowed or placed under your tongue. The dose of allergy - provoking food is gradually increase. The results look promising, even in people with peanut, egg and milk allergies. Early exposure. In the past, it's been generally recommended that children avoid allergenic foods to reduce the likelihood of developing allergies. But in a recent study, high - risk infants such as those with atopic dermatitis or egg Allergy or both were selected to either ingest or avoid peanut products from 4 to 11 months of age until 5 years of age. Researchers found that high - risk children who regularly consume peanut protein, such as peanut butter or peanut - flavored snacks, were 70% to 86% less likely to develop peanut allergies

What is a food allergy?

Although most food allergies develop when you are a child, they can, rarely, develop as an adult. The most common food allergies for adults are shellfish - both crustaceans and mollusks - as well as tree nuts, peanuts and fish. Most adults with food allergies have had allergies since they were children. Allergic reactions to food can sometimes be missed in adults because symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea can be mistaken for flu or food poisoning. Adults do always pay close attention to symptoms, which can be dangerous since crucial hints can be missed and place adults at risk if they continue to eat food. Oral Allergy syndrome is something that can develop in adulthood. Also know as pollen - Food syndrome, it is caused by cross - reacting allergens found in both pollen and raw fruits, vegetables, and some tree nuts. This is not a food allergy, though symptoms occur from food, which can be confusing. This is a pollen allergy. Symptoms of oral allergy syndrome are itchy mouth or tongue, or swelling of lips or tongue. Symptoms are generally short - live because cross - reacting allergens are quickly digest, and do not involve any other part of the body. These symptoms can help distinguish oral allergy from true food allergy.

What Adult Reactions Look Like

With new adult food Allergy - especially one revealed the hard way, through anaphylaxis - the initial jolt of diagnosis tends to give way to a variety of emotions, including fear, anxiety and concern about social isolation. Then begin a steep learning curve of safely navigating day - to - day life through reading grocery labels, asking about ingredients in all food situations, and always carrying your auto - injectors. Having to relearn how to eat is a huge undertaking as an adult, says Bond. Adults also tend to lack social support that is often present for children WITH food allergies. As adults being thrown into this world, we do have parents or schools to help give us tools to manage, notes Kate Hufnagel, who lives in Colorado and was diagnosed with allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, lentils, sunflower, sesame and artichokes at the age of 38. Youre fine one day, and your life changes the next. Hufnagel had her first major reaction at work. It was triggered by a dish she had prepared herself, with familiar ingredients, including lentils. First her cheeks start to burn, then her face swell and turn purple. By sheer good fortune, she happened to own an epinephrine auto - injector - it was prescribed after she happened to experience severe reaction to seasonal allergy shots. She injected herself and was taken to hospital by ambulance. Within a couple weeks of my diagnosis, I was carrying around allergy cards, and I wear medical ID 24 / 7, she say. Today Hufnagel blogs about allergies life and she has even spoken about adult allergies. One thing adults need to learn quickly after diagnosis is how to speak up about their special diet needs. Unlike children, adults have to fend for themselves in potentially dangerous food situations such as dating at restaurants, or parties at somebodys home. You just have to ask, ask and ask. If you do feel comfortable, leave, say Williams. You have to be vigilant; you ca assume people understand. And many people wont understand. Sara Ray Roberts of Ohio, who was diagnosed WITH Peanut Allergy in her 40s, related the story of a woman who brings some Rice Krispie bars to class at her church. Before I take one, I say, Are there any Peanuts in this? The woman says no, so Roberts begins to eat. I took a bite, and could immediately taste Peanut. And she say, Oh yeah, there is peanut butter. Roberts spit out morsel and rinses her mouth out. Thankfully, no severe reactions occur. She notes that many people simply do n't understand how dangerous food allergies are. I 've had some friends say, Cant you just take a chance and see what happen? Or Try it, just this one time. In some cases, even medical professionals express disbelief. In Canada, Lacey recalls visiting doctor for additional allergy testing after she had already been diagnosed WITH Shellfish Allergy. He actually told me that I do think youre allergic to crustaceans, I think you have acid reflux from coffee and tomatoes.

1. Dairy

To prevent reaction, it is very important that you avoid Cows Milk and Cows Milk products. Always read food labels and ask questions about ingredients before eating food that you have not prepared yourself. If you are allergic to cow milk, your doctor may recommend you also avoid milk from other domestic animals. For example, goat's milk protein is similar to cow's milk protein and may cause reactions in people who have Milk Allergy. Milk is one of eight major allergens that must be listed on packaged foods sold in the US, as required by federal law. Avoid foods that contain milk or any of these ingredients: Butter, butter fat, butter oil, butter acid, Butter ester buttermilk Casein Casein hydrolysate Caseinates Cheese Cottage Cheese Cream Curds Custard Diacetyl Ghee Half - and - Half Lactalbumin, Lactalbumin phosphate Lactoferrin Lactose Lactulose Milk Milk Protein hydrolysate Pudding Recaldent rennet Casein Sour Cream, Sour Cream solids Sour Milk solids Tagatose Whey Whey Protein hydrolysate Yogurt Artificial Butter flavor bake goods Caramel Candies Chocolate Lactic acid starter culture and other bacterial cultures Luncheon meat, hot dogs and sausages, which may use Milk Protein Casein as binder. Also, deli meat slicers are often used for both meat and cheese products, leading to cross - contact. Margarine Nisin Non - Dairy products, as many contain Casein Nougat Shellfish is sometimes dipped in milk to reduce fishy odor. Ask questions when buying Shellfish. Tuna fish, as some brands contain Casein Some specialty products made with Milk substitutes are manufactured on equipment shared with Milk. Many restaurants put butter on grilled steaks to add extra flavor. You ca see butter after it melt. Some medications contain Milk Protein. Allergens are not always present in these foods and products, but milk protein can appear in surprising places. Again, read food labels and ask questions if youre ever unsure about items ingredients. Kosher Dairy: D or word dairy following circled K or U on product label means product contains or is contaminated with Milk Protein. Avoid these products if you have Milk Allergy. Kosher Pareve: Food product label Pareve is considered Milk - free under kosher dietary law. However, product may be considered Pareve even if it contains a very small amount of milk proteinpossibly, enough to cause allergic reaction in certain people. Do not assume that these products will always be safe. People allergic to milk often have questions about the following ingredients. These ingredients do not contain Milk Protein and are safe to eat.

What Is Milk Allergy?

Cow milk allergy is the most common food allergy in infants and young children. Even though most children eventually outgrow their allergy to milk, milk allergy are also among the most common food allergies in adults. Young children who are allergic to fresh milk but can eat baked milk without reacting may be more likely to outgrow their milk allergy at an earlier age than young children who react to baked milk. When a person with milk allergy is exposed to milk, proteins in milk bind to IgE antibodies made by the person's immune system. This triggers persons immune defenses, leading to reaction symptoms that can be mild or very severe.


Symptoms

Milk allergy can cause anaphylaxis, life - threatening reaction that narrows airways and can block breathing. Milk is the third most common food after peanuts and tree nuts to cause anaphylaxis. If you or your child has a reaction to milk, tell your doctor, no matter how mild your reaction. Is Is Tests can help confirm milk allergy, so you can avoid future and potentially worse reactions. Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency and requires treatment with epinephrine shots and a trip to the emergency room. Signs and symptoms start soon after milk consumption and can include: constriction of airways, including swollen throat that makes it difficult to breathe, facial flushing, Itching Shock, with marked drop in blood pressure
