Weight Gain and Allergies

Allergic symptoms often develop from overexposure to the same food over a long period of time, and thus many overweight patients show increased hypersensitivity to foods. These sensitivities can result in a reduced ability to metabolize fats.

According to a classic work by a leading expert on allergies, an allergic reaction to food may cause the body to retain as much as 4 percent of its body weight in edema fluid (water fluid).
1 Thus a sudden weight gain, possibly signaled by such signs as increased thirst and swelling of feet and hands (i.e. "tight rings" or "tight shoes"), can be an important indicator of a hidden food allergy.

Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is another clinical symptom linked with food allergy, and usually occurs 2 - 6 hours after ingesting the offending food allergen. This reaction stimulates the appetite and can trigger the unhealthy eating patterns often implicated in the development of obesity.

In addition, many medications used to treat allergy symptoms often trigger weight gain as a side effect, without ever addressing the actual cause of the immune response. By identifying both immediate (IgE) and delayed (IgG) sensitivities to over 120 food and environmental substances, the Comprehensive Antibody Assessment can help reveal food allergies that may be playing a key role in temporary weight gain as well as long-term obesity.
