The Possible Causes Of “TYPE III Allergy,” also known as Food Intolerance, Food Sensitivity, or IgG-Mediated Food Allergy.
TYPE III Allergy occurs when the body can’t completely digest a particular food, and the proteins of this food enter the bloodstream undissolved and cause an immune system reaction.
In a healthy metabolism, the proteins are extracted into amino acids. The immune system recognizes these amino acids and does not respond to them. However, due to enzyme deficiencies or other health issues, they may enter the bloodstream as a whole. The immune system thinks these proteins are invaders attacking the body and starts producing IgG antibodies. This process often results in inflammation and leads to negative symptoms.
TYPE III Allergy And Inflammation
Various triggering mechanisms trigger reactions in white cells leading to the release of pro-inflammatory and pro-algesic mediators, such as cytokines, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins. Mediator release and cellular reactivity ultimately result in subclinical and clinical inflammatory effects manifesting in various clinical conditions and symptoms.
It Is A Delayed Response
TYPE III Allergy symptoms usually don’t appear as soon as you eat the problem food. Instead, you might have symptoms hours or days after eating that food, making it hard to connect specific foods to the symptoms you’re experiencing.
The Vicious Circle
The metabolism enters a vicious circle when you do not know the foods you are sensitive to and keep processing them. The more inflammation causes more proteins to enter; the more proteins enter, the more inflammation occurs. The only way to get out of this vicious circle is by identifying poorly digested foods and eliminating them from your diet.
