Have you ever noticed that you or your children have bad reaction within body after consumption of cow's milk - maybe in just few minutes or even up to two weeks? Often, when babies are refusing food for example, it can be sign for allergy to milk.
It’s very easy to conduct the milk allergy at home self test and to get the result within 40 minutes.
Test yourself and your child if you have at least one of the symptoms:
- itching, swelling of lips and face;
- cough, difficulty breathing or wheezing;
- asthma, dry / itchy throat and tongue;
- skin reactions, a rash, hives or eczema;
- diarrhoea, gases, abdominal pain, vomiting;
- headache and anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction).
What if you or your children are allergic to eggs?
An egg allergy develops when the body’s immune system overreacts to proteins in egg whites or egg yolks. When eggs are eaten, the body treats the protein as a foreign invader and starts to defend against it. It’s this immune defence that cause the symptoms of an allergic reaction to eggs. For children, you do not know if they suffer from an egg allergy until they actually begin eating egg whites or egg yolks.
It’s estimated that as many as 2% of children suffer from an egg allergy, although up to 70% of these children will outgrow the condition by the time they reach 16 years of age. However, until then it’s imperative that you get your child tested at home to avoid the wide range of symptoms egg allergies can cause. These reactions and symptoms can be anything from a mild rash to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that impairs breathing and can send the body into shock. The reaction could happen fast or it might take a few hours before any noticeable symptoms occur, especially in babies.
Egg allergy self test at home will give you result in 30 minutes!
Celiac disease or gluten sensitive enteropathy (or grain intolerance) is an autoimmune disease triggered by foods and products made of wheat, rye, barley and oat. Reactions generated by these proteins (gluten) cause chronic inflammation of the small intestinal mucosa, leading to several serious health issues.
Test yourself or your child, if either of you have at least one of these symptoms:
- loss of appetite, bloating, flatulence, intermittent diarrhoea (may vary with constipation), weight loss
- weakened immune system
- menstrual disorders, fertility problems (miscarriages)
- fatigue, irritability
- pale and dry skin, rash, brittle nails, cracked corners of mouth, bleeding gums
- changes in teeth enamel and structure
- iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency
- joint pains and inflammation
Why is it important to know if you may have gluten intolerance?
People suffering from gluten intolerance react to products made from wheat, rye, barley and oats. Gluten is a protein causing irritation of the intestinal tract that in turn causes discomfort, abdominal pain and other problems associated with digestion. In case of a gluten intolerance, gluten produces shortening of the villi lining the small intestine and therefore causes a nutritional deficiency.
Typical symptoms of the celiac disease - chronic diarrhoea, weight loss and rapid loss of nutrients from the body.
Celiac disease may be manifested at any age, but it often occurs from the ages of 6 months to 2 years (in 58-77% of cases), and between 20 to 40 years of age. Undiagnosed prolonged illness of young children can cause serious digestive disorders, growth and developmental delay.
Celiac disease can develop later on in life. Approximately 25% of those diagnosed with celiac disease were diagnosed over 60 years of age. Gluten intolerance occurs in both men and women.
