Food allergies, inflammation and weight problems are intimately related. Eating foods you are allergic to causes inflammation which makes your adrenal glands secrete hormones which destabilize your insulin and blood sugar levels. The high level of insulin affects the activity of two enzymes which cause your body to hold on to and deposit fat rather than allowing you to burn it for energy. Because of this food allergies can lead to weight gain, and a high amount of body fat can promote inflammation and make the problems with allergies worse.
Weight conditions cover a range of weight issues. You can be overweight, underweight, have weight fluctuations, experience sudden weight loss & suffer obesity. There are health risks with all of these conditions. Symptoms can vary considerably depending on the particular condition involved.
