Food allergies affect your brain

Hyperactive children-

The allergic child may suffer from the so-called “allergic-tension fatigue syndrome” described by Dr. Frederic Speer in 1954, resulting in irritability, hyperactivity and impaired concentration, negatively affecting school performance. The most convincing proof that this is indeed so, comes from a placebo-controlled double-blind cross-over, conducted by Dr. Egger and his team, who studied 76 hyperactive children to see if the diet can contribute to behavioral disorders trial. The results showed that 79% of children tested reacted adversely to artificial food colorings and preservatives, mainly tartrazine and benzoic acid, which produced a marked deterioration in their behavior. However no child reacted to these alone. In fact 48 different foods that produced symptoms among children assessed were found.

 

For example, 64% reacted to cow’s milk, chocolate 59%, 49% wheat, 45% for oranges, eggs 39%, 32% to peanuts, and 16% sugar. Interestingly it was not only the behavior of children improved after modification of individual diet. Most also they improved significantly associated symptoms, such as headaches, seizures, abdominal discomfort, chronic rhinitis, pain in the extremities, rashes and mouth ulcers.

 

Another similar double-blind controlled food trial by Dr. Egger and his team carried out on 88 children suffering from frequent migraines. As before, most children reacted to various foods / chemicals. cow’s milk caused symptoms in 27 children, the egg in 24, chocolate 22, both oranges and wheat 21, benzoic acid: However the following foods / chemicals that occurred more frequently found in 14 and 12 tartrazine.

 

Again, interestingly, after modifying the diet, not only improved migraine, but also disorders physical, such as abdominal pain, muscle aches, seizures, rhinitis, recurrent mouth ulcers, asthma, eczema, as well as a variety of disorders of behavior. While food colorings or additives can cause symptoms, most commonly implicated types of foods are milk, wheat, egg, beef, corn, sugar cane and chocolate. A similar syndrome in adults has been simply called “cerebral allergy”.Allergy often appears in a masked form in which the individual actually feels better after eating a favorite food. However, in a variable number of hours a grave disappointment and experiences of the patient’s symptoms can be vague and nonspecific and often include headache, depression, nasal stuffiness and sleepiness occurs.

 

Allergies run in families

Allergies are hereditary and so does the brain allergy. Allergic diseases have many symptoms and the most common occurs when the baby can not tolerate cow’s milk or goat’s milk as it begins a long struggle against allergies. Therefore symptoms are colic, eczema or croup.

Lack of breastfeeding may predispose baby to allergies because the baby does not receive the necessary immunity of the mother. Colic can progress to celiac disease in which food passes through the intestinal tract unchanged. If a sample of the intestinal wall is studied, you can see that the finger-shaped villi that absorb food flattens and the intestinal wall becomes soft and has scars. Asthma can occur and alternate with other allergic diseases. Children who eat food dyes or foods naturally rich in salicylates can develop hyperactivity.

How to save money on allergy treatment

What are your rights?

Until the Affordable Care Act takes effect in 2014, there are no federal laws in place to ensure that allergy sufferers receive treatment.

What problems can run on?

“It is quite normal that the insurance companies will cover all drugs prescribed for the treatment of allergies, at least on some level,” says Dr. Michael Foggs, American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology board member and former president of managed care and Health Planning Committee. “Although, one thing to keep in mind is that many allergy medications are now available across the counter, that is, those who are not covered by insurance anymore.”

If your doctor needs to perform any procedure on you, ask them to write down the codes and call your insurance company to make sure they are covered beforehand. “It is the responsibility of your allergist to find out what your insurance will cover,” says Dr. Sakina Bajowala, member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. “That’s something that has to be taken care of.”

How can you save money on treatment?

“Allergies are chronic diseases, which can become expensive to treat,” says Dr. Bajowala. “But having said that, there are ways to save money, both short term and long term.” An immediate concern will be how to save money on medicine. In recent years, most oral allergy medications like Claritin, Zyrtec, Allegra and was available in two generic forms and over-the-counter.

“Generic versions of these drugs are as good as the brand and you can save a lot of money,” says Dr. Bajowala. She suggests shopping at large discount stores like Sams Club and Costco. Many use these types of drugs as a loss leader, meaning that just make them at all as a way to bring people in the door.

While you may be tempted to also obtain an OTC nasal spray, Dr. Bajowala recommended against it. “The most effective prescription nasal sprays are unique,” she says. “But you do not have to go out and have your doctor prescribe the name of a more recent mark. Many of these have gone generic, well, so ask for that option to ensure that you have the lowest copay.”

As for eye drops, Dr. Foggs has a similar warning. “The best type of eye drops is achieved by prescription and, for the moment, the brand name,” he says. “But with eye drops, and other: some drugs pharmaceutical companies have plans which discount prescription drugs to patients in low-income brackets usually have to file a financial statement and have the check. your doctor who needs medication. ”

Also look for online coupons needymeds.com for prescription drugs. It sounds strange, but deep discounts to help with the cost if no insurance you can get.

“The other way to get free medication is to ask your doctor for a sample,” says Dr. Foggs. “Pharmaceutical Representatives leave plenty of samples to doctors and he will not mind giving you one. That way you will not lose money on pills or sprays that they will not be effective for you.”

In addition to medications, chances are also going to have skin tests to find out what exactly you are allergic.”This is about, but if you have no insurance, most allergists will be happy to get to you a cheaper price, especially if you can pay cash and in advance,” says Dr. Bajowala. “Most doctors do not get their full rate of insurance companies anyway, so do not feel bad asking.”

While these strategies will help you save money in the short term, there are two things you can explore on bookkeeper brisbane that can help you financially in the long run. One is to pay the highest copay to visit an allergist rather than self-medicate yourself with over-the-counter medications. “That way, you will not spend unnecessary money on medication that may not be the best for your allergies,” says Dr. Foggs. “And the allergist will be able to identify the specific triggers, so you can focus your energy (and money) on things that are more likely to help.”

The other option you can explore with your allergist is a process called allergen immunotherapy.

“That is a series of injections given in the course of three to five years,” says Dr. Bajowala. “They can be very profitable in the long run, as they can lead to no medication is required for up to 10 years after treatment.” The vaccines are covered by insurance, but if you have a high deductible plan, beginning his series in the second half of the year. “When you start the process, shots get more regularly, so you’ll save if you start after you meet the deductible,” says Dr. Bajowala.
