Nonallergic Food Reactions: Secondary Food Sensitivity

Secondary food sensitivities are adverse reactions to food that occur as a consequence of other conditions.

Secondary food sensitivities can be:
*Secondary to GI disorders
*Secondary to drug treatment

Typical example secondary food sensitivities includes drug-induce sensitivities such as the increase sensitivity to histamine among patients on monoamine oxidase-inhibiting drugs (anti-depressive agents).

Lactose intolerance is an adverse effect to lactose and occurs secondarily to an gastrointestinal disorder.

Secondary food sensitivities often disappeared within a few weeks after recovery from the illness or discontinuation of drug therapy.
