What are some senior health care implications of allergies?

Senior health and food allergies

Food allergies occur mostly in young children, and they can outgrow them. However, allergies can develop later in an individual's life as a serious senior health problem, especially when these allergies tend to run in familes. Point of info: not all adverse reactions to food indicate an allergy (response of the body's immune system), but may be a food sensitivity (an adverse reaction, but not an immune response)
