Otorhinolaryngology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Yavuz Selim Yıldırım gave information on the subject. The frequency of allergic diseases has been increasing in recent years. This is a serious health problem in terms of modern medicine today, its frequency is estimated to be between 10% in adults and 30% in children. Allergy symptoms affect patients' quality of life, sleep quality, mood, learning success and academic success,
Today, allergy treatment is carried out with allergy medications other than allergen protection, but these drugs have some undesirable side effects, these side effects may affect the quality of life of the person, which has led researchers to find new methods. Nutrition has been found to be associated with allergies at a high rate. It has been shown that the probiotic supplement added to the diet reduces the frequency of allergies by creating an anti-inflammatory response, and the use of probiotics contributes to the creation of a balanced intestinal flora in allergic rhinitis patients, thereby reducing the response to allergies in inhaled and ingested foods.
Because of its effects on the intestinal flora and reducing allergic response, probiotics are a modern treatment method and are an up-to-date method to prevent and treat allergies. In addition to probiotics, it has been shown that the amount of sugar in foods or excessive consumption of sugary foods increase the frequency of allergic rhinitis, and it has been shown that excessive consumption of processed bakery products significantly increases the frequency of allergies.
Again, reducing or cutting the sugars of processed ready-made foods, grains in the diet provides a significant allergy control by reducing the inflammatory responses of the body.
After determining the cause of the allergy with a skin test, it may be necessary to make some changes in this person's life, such as the arrangement of the home environment, the arrangement of the work environment and clothes and of course the regulation of the diet.
Protection from allergies is also a treatment method, in order to avoid the negative effects of drug therapies in patients who still have allergic complaints despite the prevention and nutritional measures, other treatment tools come into play. .
