An allergic reaction is the body’s response to something it is sensitive to. The immune system fights the source of the allergy and tries to get rid of what it thinks is a threat. The most common foods that children are allergic to are the following nuts, dairy, eggs, wheat and soya. These can be found in such things as milk, bread and nuts can be hidden in foods so you much check before using to make sure it is nut free. If a child has an allergy then there would be a record of this as the parents or carers would have let them settings know before the child started that they had an allergy.
Many people confuse an uncomfortable, but not serious, side effect of a medicine (such as nausea) with a true drug allergy. Symptoms • Common symptoms of a drug allergy include: • Hives • Itching of the skin or eyes (common) • Skin rash (common) • Swelling of the lips, tongue, or face •
Some of its symptoms include weight loss, cramping, and diarrhea. Another type is jejunoileitis. With this type, fistulas may form in the affected area of the jejunum. This type also has diarrhea and cramping as symptoms ("Crohn's Disease," 2011). Gastroduodenal Crohn's disease occurs in the duodenum and the stomach.
This results in inflammation causing swelling, increased blood flow, and ulcerations. In Crohn’s disease, these ulcerations go into the full thickness of the intestinal lining. This may lead to a narrowing of the bowel, which can lead to partial or total blockage of the intestinal flow, called bowel obstruction. Symptoms of intestinal obstruction include cramping around the mid-abdomen, frequently associated with vomiting. The abdomen may also become bloated and distended.
* Eat fewer red meats and more lean meats, cold water fish, tofu (soy, if no allergy) or beans for protein. * Use healthy oils in foods, such as olive oil or vegetable oil. * Reduce or eliminate trans fatty acids, found in such commercially baked goods as cookies, crackers, cakes, French fries, onion rings, donuts, processed foods, and margarine. * Avoid coffee and other stimulants, alcohol, and tobacco. * Drink 6 - 8 glasses of filtered water daily.
Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a contagious disease that was often mistaken for the common cold due to similarities in symptoms. Because of this, many people were exposed to the infected child without knowing. It was not until the whoop sound was heard repeatedly in a child’s cough that it was evident that they had pertussis. The coughing episodes cause “the face to to become red or purple, the eyes bulge, and the veins in the scalp dilate” (Van Dellen 14). Whooping cough is spread from person-to-person by droplets traveling through the air that carry bacteria from a cough or sneeze of an infected child.
It is rare for people with peanut allergy to react to other legumes, but many react to tree nuts e.g. brazil or hazel nuts. Reactions to peanuts can be life threatening. Once diagnosed it is important that nuts and all sources of nuts are excluded from the diet at all times unless your allergy specialist has said otherwise. Always check labels and avoid any foods you are unsure about, ALWAYS ask a chef when eating out.
Cystic fibrosis is an autosomal recessive gene disorder. This disease affects the lungs most significantly. It also affects the pancreas, liver, and intestines, and various organs. This disease is characterized by the buildup of thick, sticky mucus that can damage vital organs. This abnormal mucus can clog the airways which will lead to severe problems with breathing and bacterial infections in the lungs.
In the Aztec empire they would cultivate an insect, know as a cochineal, to produce food coloring. The hazards of food coloring are less than you’d imagine. The FDA approves almost all the food coloring used in products. The most common reaction is an allergic reaction, which is very uncommon (in the range of 1 in 10,000.) Although it is not an allergic reaction, but is actually an intolerance like some people have with lactose.
