Can one develop an allergy to a certain food later in life?
I'm asking this because I recently had an allergic reaction to something I ate. And I haven't eaten anything new recently. I'm thinking it was either an omelet, a salad, or soy milk.

One certainly can react to foods that were previously tolerated. factors affecting this are

1) repeated exposure
2) ingesting foods while stressed or injured
3) ingesting while recieving chemical toxins ( drinking a soda while golfing on a freshly sprayed course)
4) reacting to spices or additives and not the food itself.

people with sudden and severe reactions are more likely to have detectable IgE antibodies in the serum. Quantitation of these levels has some utility in predicitng the chance of severe reactions Other reactions such as eczema,vomiting(esophagitis) colitis or migraine may be mediated though other means

Absolutely, yes! You can develop an allergy at any time in your life.

yes ,,,can happen any time...egg and milk ,,peanuts are most common

Definitely. I just found out I'm allergic to morel mushrooms (other kinds are find), even though I ate one or two every year for years with no worse symptoms than a mild stomach ache. Then my husband decided he'd treat me, and made a whole plate of them just for me. The first time we thought it was just too rich, but the second time it was pretty obvious that I was allergic to them--that wasn't stomach flu!

first off...........did you check the experation date on the milk and eggs to see if they have expired? second..........has any DR told you you may have an intolerance to dairy? i cant say you can develop an allergy to certain foods later in life but basic foods like milk eggs, etc. does not just happen all of a sudden. to know for sure call your DR to make an appt. for an allergy DR they have tests to determine what things you are allergic to. good luck

it's possible b/c you're body is alittle more developed since you've grown older. It's more apt to respond to old stuff than new.just keep a look out

I developed a shellfish allergy only six years ago...after a lifetime of enjoying shrimp, oysters, etc. Although my allergy isn't fish per se, I need to be aware of how food is prepared to insure, for instance, that the grilled chicken or salmon wasn't next to the shrimp on the grill, etc. Fried foods are out, too, because of the proximity issue. Your best bet is to visit an allergist to determine what your triggers are (I waited two years, and thought I was allergic to fish). Your allergist will also provide you with the best course of action re medications and preventive measures. Good luck!

Yes you can...As with everything our body's change and things we used to eat without thinking can be the things that harm us later on in life.

Allergies are very funny-and yes you can develop an allergy over night.

My husband and I used to go out and eat shrimp alot and all of a sudden he developed an allergy to sea food that he didn't have.

You could have developed an allergy to eggs or dairy. There are test that Dr. can do on you to find out exactly what you have allergies to.

Developing allergies later in life is not uncommon - I know, I'm one of those people. Foods and products that I've enjoyed for years suddenly cause severe reactions. Monitor your food consumption closely and you will be able to determine what is the "trigger" food(s). Here is what the Mayo Clinic has to say about it - http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/food-allergy/AN00179
