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.

Symptoms of allergic gastroenteritis

  • Abdominal pain

  • Diarrhea

  • Exposed to something that you were previously allergic to

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 loose stools or diarrhea?

  • Have you recently eaten or come into contact with known allergy causing items?

Treatment for allergic gastroenteritis

Childhood allergies may disappear by adulthood. The most important step is identifying and removing trigger foods from the diet. During an episode, treatment with charcoal pills and antihistamine medicines will be helpful. Rarely, some patients may develop a severe allergy - this will require emergency medical care.
