NICE warns about growing food allergies in kids
NHS guidance state that muscle weakness and hair analysis should not be done to identify food allergies among kids and this should be done as no evidence suggests that they work.
National Institute for Clinical Excellence, NICE, stated that about 20 people in Britain are affected by a growing increase in immune disorders and an attempt should be made by general practitioners to figure out those who are suffering from this.
Experts stated that the reason for rising cases of this might be inadequate response from the NHS towards the cause. In the UK, since 1990, there has been a 500 per cent rise in hospital admissions related to this, NICE said.
Foods that cause allergy in young ones mostly are eggs, shellfish, cow’s milk, peanuts, fish, sesame, soy, tree nuts, kiwi and even wheat.
Several allergic reactions can even prove fatal in many cases. Caution is needed following this.
Dr Adam Fox, a consultant in pediatric allergy at Guy's and St Thomas' hospital in London, said, “The cause of growing sensitivity among children remains a mystery. Greater public awareness of the problem may be one element. The UK leads the world in terms of allergic disorders.”
