How can nutrients help with dermatitis?

(Natural News) A person’s nutritional status affects his body’s immune function. Scientific evidence of this has sparked interest in the possible role dietary factors play in the pathogenesis of skin conditions like atopic dermatitis (AD). While food allergies and elimination diets have been studied in relation to atopy — a genetic tendency to develop allergic diseases —...

Biologics have revolutionized medical therapy in the past 2 decades. Allergic Diseases have benefited from this revolution as a variety of biologics have impacted all categories of allergic diseases. Anticytokines directed at type 2 immunity has helped in the treatment of all allergic conditions covered in this issue ranging from Allergic Rhinitis to Asthma to Atopic Dermatitis to Food Allergy and others. Obviously, the ravages of COVID-19 on processes involved in biologic treatment are a consideration, but current thinking suggests such therapies should not be affected by the pandemic.

CONCLUSION: Atopic disorders, previously recognized as predictors of poor sleep, are associated with COPCs after accounting for sleep problems. PMID: 32975542 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Studies on the pattern of allergic sensitization to a specific population offer tools for the more effectual prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of allergic diseases. Sensitization to dust mites house was the most prevalent in the evaluated sample. High rates of sensitization to furry animals also stand out. Patients with food allergy, atopic dermatitis, or multimorbidity appear to be at greater risk for developing more severe allergic diseases. PMID: 32986999 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Discussion There are 8 common foods which compromise 90% of food allergens with those being peanuts, soybeans, cow’s milk, eggs, fish, crustacean/shellfish, wheat and tree nuts. Some people believe that lupin (a legume) is 9th. Legumes belong to the Fabaceae family. They provide protein, fat, vitamins other essential nutrients and therefore are used in the human diet throughout the world. “[A]llergenicity due to consumption of legumes in decreasing order may be peanut, soybean, lentil, chickpea, pea, mung bean and red gram.” Other common legumes include alfalfa, clovers, beans, lupins, mesquite, carob...

Authors: Dierick BJH, van der Molen T, Flokstra-de Blok BMJ, Muraro A, Postma MJ, Kocks JWH, van Boven JFM Abstract INTRODUCTION: Asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis and food allergy affect approximately 20% of the global population. Few studies describe the burden of the totality of these diseases and only a handful studies provide a comprehensive overview of the socioeconomic impact of these diseases. AREAS COVERED: For this narrative review, we searched Pubmed using selected keywords and inspected relevant references using a snowballing process. We provide an overview of the socioeconomic burden of ...

CONCLUSIONS: Food allergy or food intolerance was more common in subjects with allergic multimorbidity than in subjects diagnosed with one allergic disease or those free of allergic diseases. PMID: 32955224 [PubMed - in process]

(MediaSource) Researchers at National Jewish Health have determined that many allergic conditions likely start with dry, cracked skin, which leads to a chain reaction of allergic diseases known as the atopic march. It begins in infancy with atopic dermatitis and leads to food allergies, asthma and hay fever. Their latest study in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice reveals that the time of year a baby is born may be a risk factor.

The incidence of allergic diseases continues to rise. Cross-sectional and longitudinal studies have indicated that allergic diseases occur in a time-based order: from atopic dermatitis and food allergy in infancy to gradual development into allergic asthma and allergic rhinitis in childhood. This phenomenon is defined as the “atopic march”. Some scholars have suggested that the atopic march does not progress completely in a temporal pattern with genetic and environmental factors. Also, the mechanisms underlying the atopic march are incompletely understood. Nevertheless, the concept of the atopic march provides ...

The origin of allergic disease has traditionally been explained by IgEmediated immune responses to account for asthma, atopic dermatitis, atopic rhinitis, and food allergy. Research insights into disease origins support broader array of factors that predispose, initiate, or exacerbate altered immunity in allergic diseases: inherent epithelial barrier dysfunction, loss of immune tolerance, disturbances in gut and organ-specific microbiomes, diet, and age. Here, we discuss these influences that together form a better understanding of allergy as a systems disease.
