Food Allergies and Anaphylactic Shock

Some food allergies can create a very serious reaction referred to as Anaphylactic Shock. Anaphylactic Shock is a medial emergency where symptoms may include a feeling of impending doom, warmth or flush, tingling of the palm of hands or lips, faintness, bloating and chest tightness. This condition can progress into seizures, respiratory distress and even shock.

If you've seen Anaphylactic Shock in progress, you'll never forget it - it's a scary situation. THIS is why we take such great care of children who have severe food allergies.
