Are your food allergies a result of lifestyle choices? Nearly half of people experience their first reactions after reaching adulthood

(Natural News) A new report from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology has found that more than 45 percent of people develop food allergies after the age of 17. According to the new research, more than 35 percent of allergies to many types of seafood – including shrimp, crab, and lobster – do not appear...

CONCLUSIONS: Childhood asthma is more prevalent in regional Tasmania compared with national estimates, especially among indigenous children. This appears not to be driven by an allergic response. Also, a significant proportion of children are likely to have undiagnosed asthma which has implications for rural health service delivery. PMID: 30311828 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: This was the first nationwide study of PFAS in Korea. The prevalence of PFAS was 41.7%, and 8.9% of the PFAS patients had anaphylaxis. These results will provide clinically useful information to physicians. PMID: 30306747 [PubMed]

Authors: Sharma G, Im SH Abstract The prevalence of allergic disorders has dramatically increased over the past decade, particularly in developed countries. Apart from gastrointestinal disorders, neoplasia, genital and dermatological diseases etc., dysregulation of gut microbiota (dysbiosis) has also been found to be associated with increased risk of allergies. Probiotics are increasingly being employed to correct dysbiosis and, in turn, to modulate allergic diseases. However, several factors like strain variations and effector metabolites or component of them in a bacterial species can affect the efficacy of those...

ORAL FOOD CHALLENGE FAILURES AMONG FOODS RESTRICTED DUE TO ATOPIC DERMATITIS. Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2018 Oct 13;: Authors: Eapen AA, Kloepfer KM, Leickly FE, Slaven JE, Vitalpur G Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent studies have suggested that removing foods from the diet to manage atopic dermatitis (AD), based on positive allergy tests, may lead to immediate allergic reactions on reintroduction of that food. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the frequency of oral food challenge (OFC) failures among foods removed from the diet as suspected AD triggers, focusing on the five major f...

Food allergies are on the rise and becoming a global concern.1 Common food allergens are well recognized and have been studied extensively in the US and Europe. However, there is a gradual emergence of new food allergens such as lupin, which are neither as well characterized nor studied.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo familiarize the reader with the concept of precision medicine in food allergy by dealing with the current biomarkers for the diagnosis, prognosis, and management of the disease.Recent FindingsMany efforts have been devoted in order to characterize reliable biomarkers able to identify specific phenotypes and endotypes in food allergy. Specific IgE (sIgE), sIgE/total IgE ratios, and T cell assays are just a few candidates that have been investigated over time. With the advent of omics sciences, a new era is commencing. A better understanding of pathogenesis of food allergy and mechanisms of action...

AbstractPurpose of reviewTo describe and understand the links and interactions between food allergy and asthmaRecent findingsFood allergy and asthma are characterized by an increasing prevalence. Moreover, food allergy and asthma often coexist. Both conditions are associated with each other in different ways. It has been shown that food allergy is a risk factor of developing asthma. Atopic dermatitis appears to be the common denominator in this interaction. Loss-of-function variants of the filaggrin mutation result in an impaired epidermal barrier function and have been shown to be a risk factor for the development of atop...

A 5-year-old girl is seen for asthma and food allergies to peanut and tree nuts. Since her last visit, she had one allergic reaction during which she developed hives and wheezing after taking a bite of a muffin cross-contaminated with peanut. This incident was treated with epinephrine. This past winter, she had multiple upper respiratory tract infections that required 2 courses of oral corticosteroids. Her asthma is currently well controlled with daily inhaled fluticasone, with no nighttime awakenings.
