Can allergy cause increase in weight or obesity?

Our body gets vitamins, minerals and important ingredients from food to provide energy to body and stay healthy. But if person is allergic to a food and he takes it daily then instead of giving energy it damages the immune system and cannot be neutralized or detoxified by the body defense system. So this food is converted to waste fat and deposited continuously in the body leading to obesity. Typically these people try very hard with diet control and strenuous daily exercises but still they gain weight. Once these patients are treated for their allergies they are lose weight and also get rid of allergic diseases.
