Food allergy test

We’ve heard this before but now more evidence is available.

Children tested by skin prick tests for food allergies at age one often test negative by the time they are six years old according to a study of over 5,000 children. (Article in Pediatric News April 2019) Peanut allergy had a lower resolution rate of 31% compared to the 91% of kids that improved from their egg allergy. Factors that increased the risk of persistent peanut allergy were: early onset eczema, tree nut allergy (nuts like cashews, walnuts, almonds)and greater than 4mm reaction to the skin prick test.

By the way….A skin prick test is when an allergist puts a small drop of a liquid solution containing the food in question on the skin of a patient. A plastic probe is used to scratch, or prick, the skin to allow the solution to penetrate below the surface. The reaction is monitored to confirm a food allergy.

Silent Heart Attack

We’ll explain who is most likely to experience this silent killer, but first, let us cover the standard heart attack.
A heart attack is a very serious and very sudden condition and occurs when a section of the heart does not receive blood. This lack of blood flow can cause heart tissue to die and scar. Heart attacks can range from mild to severe affecting areas both small and large areas of the heart. Almost always, heart attacks are life-threatening and require immediate attention.
Silent heart attacks can happen to anyone, but people most likely to experience silent heart attacks are those that have had a prior heart attack, individuals who have diabetes, women, men and women over the age of 65 and those prone to strokes. Individuals taking medication on a regular basis may also experience a silent heart attack.

Slipped Disk

The spinal column generally resembles a few books stacked up. It is made up of a series of bones (vertebrae) stacked onto each other. From top to bottom, the column includes seven bones in the cervical spine, 12 in the thoracic spine, and five in the lumbar spine, followed by the sacrum and the coccyx at the base. These bones are cushioned by disks. The disks protect the bones by absorbing the shocks from daily activities like walking, lifting, and twisting.
