Data from the World Allergy Organization (WTO) reported that today 8% of & # 39; A child up to 2 years old has suffered from type 2, which is 2% in adults. More than 170 foods have general potential, but a small number of them concentrate most cases. This week, World Allergy Week was held, which this year as theme had & # 39; s news allergy, focused on & # 39; the population over the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of various types of disease, which is never reaching more people.
Any allergy is an exaggerated response from the body to completion of certain proteins that are not eaten. Symptoms may appear on the skin, gastrointestinal, respiratory and / or cardiovascular systems. The responses are dependent on the body and may be mild, such as simple hunting, for more serious things, such as the involvement of different organs and the risk of death.
The allergic image may manifest to every lifestyle, but the highest incidence is in youth. When we are born, our immune system is still in the making, and it continues to develop in adolescence, which justifies allergic reactions that are currently commoner.
There are no specific numbers for Brazil when it comes to eating allergies, but it is considered that the percentage is close to the world. If each country and region have different fertilizations, some foods have a higher incidence of allergies around the world.
For example, in South-East Asia, rice is the leading cause of allergies, and in northern countries, countries are leading fish and seafood in general. All in the United States, peanuts are one of & # 39; a most allergy-causing diet.
In Brazil, according to the doctor, eating with the highest incidence, with great game over the others, is milk, followed by so, egg and fish. Allergies to sugars, nuts, color and pig have been included in adults more, and less rare than is thought.
The regional coordinator of a Brazilian association of Algery and Immunology (Asbai), Neo Bartolomeu's allergyist, considered the importance of medical check and dispute doubts and myths in an interview with Diário. According to him, it is important to understand the difference between allergy and intolerance.
Many people remove the conditions and say that they are allergic to a doctor without consulting. The diagnosis can only be made by a specialist, who will do the research according to the medical history of the police. It is also important to never perform the provocation (such as allergy test) outside a hospital and without the presence of a doctor, because the patient may even have an anaphylactic shock and after death – the doctor said.
Lactose is a type of sugar that has been found in milk, and has not caused any allergy, but rather of intolerance, a fact that much disturbance caused people. The symptoms of intolerance are abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas and distal abbey.
On the other hand, milk allergy is performed by theses, especially cassins, alpha-lactalbumin and beta-lactoglobulin. Symptoms can vary, such as red patches on the body, things, swelling of the lips and eyes, the onset of jet and / or diarrhea and even anaphylaxis, considered the most serious reaction.

Ney Bartolomeu, who graduated from Rio de Janeiro and graduated from Petropolis, worked in every city for about 40 years as an allergist, commenting that changes in food companies make a contribution to a higher invasion of news allergies.
"Man, many centuries, was just something vegetable. Afterwards, food and other types of food began to burn, and today, the range of options increased daily, contributing to & # 39; growth & # 39 The Global Nutrition Alliance, which was a decisive factor in selecting this theme for the World Allergy Week, said.
Worldwide, the WAO is promoted this week, and in Brazil the responsible institution is the ASBAI, which was created in 1972. The non-profit and scientific association has as its mission to promote continuous medical training and the diffusion of knowledge in the field of Allergy and Immunology.

Know the symptoms of food allergies
Though many people think, the amount generated does not affect the symptoms it sustains by allergies and the incidental consumption of food is not a business factor. The person who has an allergy has already been born with the limitation, and cannot be affected by the consumption. In children, the symptoms are easier to identify because of the resolution.
– In children and children, allergies cause tremendous cramps, abnormal abnormalities (large amounts), diarrhea or instillation, pallor, urticaria, syncope (temporary loss of consciousness) and death. The symptoms are easy to see and a pediatrician needs to be looked after by one of them – Ney Bartolomeu said.
Adults can expect about symptoms, but in lesser performance. It is also representative of beauty in the skin, jerking, abdominal pain, nasal depletion, litter, coughing, shortness of breath, elevated heart rate, drop in blood pressure, dizziness, among others. There are also allergies that are not only in the & # 39; region manifesting a mouth, showing the strong reasons and searching in the lips and the sky of & # 39; a mouth.
A person living with food allergy should perform an exclusion type, through the consumption of these foods. Another important fact is reading labels from industrial products, always guaranteeing the presence of the substance there is the person allergic to food. Warning of restaurants and restaurants when ordering a meal is also a must.
– Sometimes feeds in & nbsp; & nbsp; are the same pan, fat or whatever, so it doesn & # 39; t include the food. For example, if the person is allergic to shrimp and asks for a trip that is set up in the same fat, a response may fit the same way – commented ASYI regional coordinator Ney.
In realizing an allergic reaction, it is important that the person carries out their own injection and ensures that the victim is in a care setting on time.
