Non-IgE Food Immunological Diseases
Non-IgE food immunological diseases encompass a wide range of illnesses that can involve one of more systems in the body. The gastrointestinal track is the most commonly involved system, but cutaneous and respiratory systems can also be involved. This chapter will primarily be focused on identification, diagnosis, and treatment options for non-IgE food immunological diseases involving the gastrointestinal track directly. Current difficulties in diagnosis and pathophysiology behind non-IgE food immunological diseases will be explored.
