Food Allergies And Intolderances: How They Affect Individuals With Autism
Autism affects how the body functions in a variety of ways, including how a person responds to certain foods. Depending on the severity of the diagnosis, people with autism may struggle with full allergies to certain foods, intolerances to others, or a combination of both. How do allergies manifest differently in people with autism? True food allergies occur when a specific food triggers an strong immune response within body. These responses can be anything from hives to full anaphylactic shock, resulting in death if no medical intervention is given.
