Listen: US, Professor And Allergies discussed on Dr. Daliah
"Half the people who think they have a food allergy do not according to a study. US study find some people needlessly avoid foods, and then others do not have the life saving medication which is expensive sec. Visit a number of adults who think they have a food allergy is almost double the figure will actually have one. The study was threat to the US many people with an allergy don't even that actually have an allergy don't have an epi pen. What you should have. Because if you are emerging to peanuts or shrimp, and you're going to NFL axis where you can't breathe that epinephrine helps dilate the bronchials and allows you to breathe. You need to be pen. The study suggests that eleven percent of adults in the US. So ten percent of us actually have a food allergy acquainting more than twenty six million. Twelve million are estimated to have developed it by don't. So you could get it as a kid, but you can also get an allergy as an adult. They say this is really concerning because chances are they could eat the food. And then all of a sudden have reacted to it that they could previously tolerated. We talked to you guys about that. You know, like, I said with feces your very first Basting doesn't kill you. It's your subsequent ones that can. Because now you've developed antibodies and immune response. They say some of these foods, you know, that they were probably able to eat previously because they were common foods like shellfish peanuts. Etc. So getting lack a professor of pediatric allergy King's College London. He was on the research, but said the growing problem food allergies at adults might be linked to the dramatic rise in children over the past twenty years now that we're seeing more kids allergic, we're probably seeing the same sort of mechanism caused parents to be allergic as well. So I. How many people actually have these certain allergies? Well, they say a shellfish allergy affects two point nine percent of adults that was kind of the most common one, then milk and peanuts affected one point nine percent and one point eight percent respectively. So peanut allergy came in third. But they say ten twenty percents of participants were deemed to have at least one convincing food allergy twice as many the reported. They had a problem. And I hear that a lot I'm allergic today as rhyme allergic to this. And you know, but then again, I would rather you be cautious. But then we also talked about food intolerances. You know, I can't eat onions anymore. I used to be able to I told you guys about that. I can have raw onions on my pizza raw onions on my burgers. I loved onions I still do. And then I got to medical school and all of a sudden, I look nine months pregnant, and I wasn't sex. I'm telling you right now wasn't that? So I go to the doctors nobody could figure out what's going on. And one of my professors said go take Sabino, maybe it's something you're eating and you're having a food allergy to our food intolerant. To and I did a elimination diet, and I stopped everything. And then I solely introduced things found out that when I eat onions, I would within hours blow up and gift loaded."
