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.

I am giving you some tips to prevent constipation: 1. Take 6-8 glass of water in a day 2. Regular physical activity keeping mobile and active will greatly reduce your risk of getting constipation. Ideally do at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week. 3. You should have about 30 g of fibre a day. You can increase your fibre intake by eating more: I am giving you list of some fibre containing food fruit vegetables wholegrain rice whole wheat pasta wholemeal bread seeds oats 4. Toilet habits never ignore the urge to go to the toilet consult for further management.

Hold the shoulder blades on both sides of the neck with 4 fingers of each hand and press on either side of the scapula with the thumbs on both sides of the vertebrae. Ask him to inhale slowly while the pressure is given with the thumbs and exhale while you release the thumbs. Do this 10 or 15 times whenever he finds difficulty in breathing. This will solve his problem. Further press his thumb on both sides and release. Pl inform the progress after 5 days.

My mother is having asthma n she is having back. What can be done to get rid of the back pain.
Bronchitis (asthama) is inflammation of bronchus system. Majority of time problem is allergic in condition. Allergy are mainly due to dust pollution food fruits with pesticides etc. Mainly here we have to increase immunity so that no allergy can happen and well this done by homoeo medicines. Safe effective and cheap. CONSULT ME ON PRIVATE CHAT.

If you had bleed from the wound, you will fall into category 3 dog bite. So you need to take an Inj Equirab or Human Immunoglobulin against rabies within first 24hrs for extra protection. Yes you need to also continue Inj Rabipur on 0,3,7,14,28 days. For any other queries please pm me

I have Asthma/COPD since last 5 years and managing with 1. Serolfo 250 (1 puff x twice a day) 2. Duolin (1 puff x 5-6 times a day). I am 63 male and play tennis everyday. During play i find extremely out of breath despite taking 2 puffs of Duolin. Docor please suggest how many puffs of Duolin can i take at a time for getting releif during play. Or if you can suggest some other course of medicine. Thanks

First get a PFT done to decide between asthma and copd as treatment is different.Increase dose of seroflo 250 2puff twice/day.Duolin 2 puff 15 mts before tennis can be taken.Taking duolin 5-6/day is not good. Kindly get your severity assessed and dose of medicine adjusted.For good control of asthma you should not require duolin more then once/week.
