What is allergic gastroenteritis?

A condition where the intestines react strongly to certain foods, resulting in diarrhea and abdominal discomfort. Common triggers include milk, eggs, seafood and nuts. Childhood allergies may gradually disappear by adulthood, however allergies can develop at any point in life.

  • Family history of Asthma, Eczema, Allergic rhinitis or Allergic conjunctivitis

  • Diarrhea

  • Stomach pain or tummy ache in a specific place

  • Upset tummy / upper abdominal discomfort

  • Mental stress or physical exhaustion

Questions your doctor may ask to check for allergic gastroenteritis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose allergic gastroenteritis

  • Do you have abdominal pain (stomach ache)?

  • Do you have a family history of asthma, atopy, allergic rhinitis or allergic conjunctivitis?

  • Do you have loose stools or diarrhea?

  • Do you have abdominal (stomach) pain in any particular location?

Treatment for allergic gastroenteritis

Childhood allergies may disappear by adulthood. The most important step is identifying and removing trigger foods from the diet.
