MIGRAIN RELATED FOOD ALLERGY ?

  1. Monro J,Carini C, Brostoff JMigraine is a food-allergic disease Lancet. 1984 Sep 29;2(8405):719-21.Foods which provoked migraine in 9 patients with severe migraine refractory to drug therapy were identified. The patients were then given either sodium cromoglycate or placebo orally in a double-blind manner, with foods previously identified as provocants. Sodium cromoglycate exerted a protective effect, thus confirming that it can prevent a hypersensitivity mechanism as well as the symptoms of migraine. Immune complexes were not produced in those patients who were protected by sodium cromoglycate. These observations confirm that a food-allergic reaction is the cause of migraine in this group of patients.
  2. Monro J, Brostoff J, Carini C, Zilkha KFood allergy in migraine. Study of dietary exclusion and RAST Lancet. 1980 Jul 5;2(8184):1-4Two-thirds of severe migraineurs were allergic to certain foods, shown by dietary exclusion and subsequent challenge. Radioallergosorbent test confirmed the relevance of these foods. Oral sodium cromoglycate protected these patients from food challenges. The initial specific allergic reaction in the gut may result in increased mucosal permeability which allows food antigens, complexes, or mediators to be absorbed and cause symptoms.
