FOR YOUR CHILD WITH ALLERGIES? CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT!
An allergy is an overreaction of the immune system to a substance that’s harmless to most people. But in someone with an allergy, the body’s immune system treats the substance (called an allergen) as an invader and overreacts, causing symptoms. These allergens can be in the environment, pets and food.
In an attempt to protect the body, the immune system of the allergic person produces antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE). Those antibodies then cause the allergy cells in the body to release chemicals into the bloodstream to defend against the allergen. This means that every time the person eats or is exposed to that particular allergen, he or she would have an allergic reaction or symptom.
Traditionally people think of allergic reactions as those involving the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs all while being told to ignore the skin and gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. The GI symptoms can go unnoticed and show in picky eating, stomach pain, failure to thrive, poor eating, overeating, posturing, poor sleep, behavioral problems, mood swings, eczema to name a few. It is important to get down to the culprit to keep these reactions from continuing. Hoover over the image below to see how allergies can effect your child's body!
