Hello, I need some help with my kid’s problem. He is 7 years old and it looks like he cannot eat some types of food. And we are going to the doctor in couple of days but I would like to know is this something serious, some kind of food allergy or a similar thing. What is the main difference between food allergy and food intolerance?

The easiest way to describe that difference is via immunoglobulin. While in allergy IgE immunoglobulin is responsible for the body’s negative response, in intolerance IgG is the main problem. And that is only one possible cause when it comes to food intolerance sources. This means that there are other possibilities, such as the lack of certain enzymes, intestinal problems etc.
