Shoud I be watchful of severe allergic reactions?

Allergies and Senior Health

If we do have allergic reactions to food, beware of the severity of these. Known as anaphylaxis, this could be a life-treatening reaction which includes: difficulty in breathing, swelling of tongue and throat, increased sweating, and quick lowering of blood pressure. Immediate medical attention should be seeked. If you consistently have the same minor reaction after eating certain food, you're probably allergic, and should see your senior health care physician or an allergist.
