This medication is employed in individuals with food allergies to avert severe reactions to foods. Additionally, it’s used in the treatment and prevention of inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis. Cromoglycate falls under the category of medications known as mast cell stabilizers. Its mechanism involves thwarting mast cells, which play a role in allergic and inflammatory responses, from releasing substances like histamines, thereby mitigating skin and gastrointestinal issues.
