Nuts - How To Know If You Are Allergic To Them?

Nuts - How To Know If You Are Allergic To Them?

Nuts are a rich source of energy but are also one of the most common food allergens. Both children and adults can suffer from nut allergies. While some children may outgrow the allergy, for others this is a lifelong condition. When it comes to children, the sibling of a child who is allergic to nuts also has a high risk of being allergic to them as well.

Nut allergies can be categorized as an allergy to peanuts or an allergy to tree nuts. Tree nuts are nuts that grow on trees such as walnuts, cashew nuts and almonds. Peanuts are not considered tree nuts as they grow underground in the form of legumes. A person can be allergic to both types of nuts but it is not necessary that if you are allergic to peanuts, you should avoid almonds as well and vice versa.

There are laboratory tests to determine the types of food you can be allergic to but in most cases, you realize you are allergic to something only after consuming it. Some of the symptoms of nut allergies include:

  1. Redness
  2. Rashes
  3. Tenderness of the skin
  4. Hives
  5. Swelling of the hands and feet
  6. Sneezing
  7. Runny nose
  8. Sore throat
  9. Watery eyes
  10. Nausea
  11. Vomiting
  12. Stomach cramps
  13. Diarrhea
  14. Shortness of breath

Most of the symptoms that affect the skin and respiratory system can be relieved with the help of antihistamines. Cold compresses can also help relieve itchiness caused by nut allergies.
One of the most severe forms of nut allergies can result in Anaphylaxis. This can be described as the swelling of the throat so much so that the airways are blocked and it becomes difficult to breathe. It is often accompanied by swelling of the facial features and itchiness. The only way to relieve this swelling is with an adrenaline injection. This reduces the swelling and reopens the airways. The most common type of adrenaline injection is known as an epi pen.

Some types of foods that commonly contain nuts and should be avoided include baked goods, pesto, nougat, marzipan, soups, multigrain bread, honey, granola, sauces such as hot sauce and barbeque sauce, salad dressings and veggie burgers. Nuts are often also used as thickening agents and hence if you know you are allergic to nuts, pay attention to food labels before you buy any product and make it a habit to tell your server in a restaurant that you are allergic to nuts. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Yes tension headache is quite common these days. But it could be high blood pressure as well. go for a blood pressure check as well as eye check up urgently. For stress assessment you can get it done by a psychologist /psychiatrist or contact me as well

My daughter and I are out of state. She started noticing a yellowish tint in her eyes, I know that can be an early sign of jaundice. She is also prone to allergies. Our insurance will not cover her being seen where we are. So I am wondering if it is safe to wait and have her see her primary doctor in about 4 days when we get home? Unless this is fatal?

Left ear has lots of ear wax how to clean it As I always has more ear wax in left ear.
You may use OTC ear drops such as Soliwax or clearwax. 4 drops 4-5 times in a day. If it comes out on its own. Good enough, otherwise someone else has to wipe it out using an ear bud if still not feeling OK.

Swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort and bleeding. Other factors that increase the risk for getting hemorrhoids include constipation, diarrhea, lifting heavy objects, poor posture, prolonged sitting, pregnancy, eating a diet low in fibre, anal intercourse, and being overweight. Liver damage and some food allergies can also add stress to the rectal veins. People who consistently eat a high-fiber diet are less likely to get hemorrhoids, while those people who prefer a diet high in processed foods are at higher risk. A low-fiber diet or inadequate fluid intake can cause constipation, which can contribute to hemorrhoids in two ways: it promotes straining on the toilet People do not consider homeopathy medicine for piles at its early stages and this is one of the reason why they end up under a surgeon's knife.

Hye, Thanks for the query. It's possible that you are not eating right because of fear and losing weight because of your condition. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: Eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, roti, unpolished rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. Avoid refined processed and packaged foods. Concentrate on whole grains vegetables fruits. Fluids is a very important factor to avoid constipation. Drinking warm water regularly will help.

Ear blockage can be due a problem in the external ear ( like wax, fungal infection etc) or in the middle ear ( fluid behind the eardrum due to cold,Eustachian tube dysfunction etc)You need to be examined by an ENT surgeon for diagnosis.

Dear lybrate user, you may be suffering from a clinical condition called phimosis. The most conventional method to get rid of it is surgery. However, if you are unwilling to undergo surgery then you can try the following process at home. 1) buy any local anaesthetic gel (e. G. Lidocaine, lignocaine, xylocaine) from allopathic retail shop. 2) apply a little amount of that anaesthetic gel at the lower part of the prepuce of penis where the foreskin remains attached. 3) after application of the gel, retract the foreskin backwards as far as you can. Due to the anaesthetic property of the gel you will be able to retract the foreskin backwards to some extent more than you can do in normal condition. 4) release the foreskin when you feel pain 5) again repeat the same process. Do it continuously for at least 30 minutes in a day. Within a month you will feel that your foreskin has become loose.
