The first thing I notice when reading a medical journal is the vast amount of information that can be very overwhelming. As time goes on, my eyes become more and more tired from all this info, and I find myself constantly checking in with it to make sure I get the data or figure out what’s happening. Then there’s the fact that the information they write is not always up to date—this is especially true if you’re looking for something specific, such as breast cancer. And then finally, some of the medical treatment they give you are too expensive.
You need a doctor who can get your health under control, otherwise it’ll just worsen. In order to deal with all these symptoms, you have to take these steps: If you have any questions about anything that might seem wrong, contact an individual right from a doctor or other medical professional. It also helps to know which common illnesses you have because certain things like cysts, infections, etc. will usually show up when this happens. So if you do have any concerns, try to see your healthcare provider. This way they’ll be able to address them. And also know your upcoming treatments or procedures.
The next step is knowing what your body’s immune system is doing in a healthy state. A person can have one or more of two types of chronic allergies. A type of allergy is called Type 1 (called “good”) and a type 2 (called “bad”) according to the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). While people may say they aren’t allergic to these things, their bodies react to many things including food, chemicals in our environment, certain drugs, latex, pet dander, pollen, etc.
A lot of reactions may appear to be harmless at first but can turn deadly for the patient later on. For example, Type 1 allergies cause asthma and allergies that affect the respiratory organs. These types of allergies include foods like wheat, pork, beef, eggs, and even garlic.
People who have Type 1 allergies should avoid peanut butter, nuts, soy products, shellfish, and fish. Their body attacks these things because these things contain proteins from either mold, fungi, or plants. When someone has Type 1 allergies but does not have any problems with asthma, he or she should still take care to avoid these things to prevent any future allergies. For Type 1 allergies, they shouldn’t consume allergen free products like peanut butter, nuts, nuts, peanuts, etc.
Even though no single ingredient is bad to them, many things can trigger a reaction: dust mites, cat dander, pesticides, pollen, and more. Someone who has Type 1 allergies should limit their intake of allergen-rich products because they may trigger a reaction from their body and make it worse for them.
Some things that could trigger Type 1 reactions are latex (batteries, purses, shoes, toys, etc.), latex exposure (if you’ve been around latex and do not wear gloves or masks, you could easily get a dangerous infection), food, pets, latex exposure (pet dander, dog dander, earwax, clothing, bedding, etc.) and more. Type 1 allergies are mostly found among children aged between two and seven years old.
They can often develop severe allergies, so people who develop Type 1 allergies should limit the number of times they come face to face with a child, pet, or animal that triggers a Type 1 response because most likely it will happen again. Once this happens, it is important that you go through the same process of avoiding those allergens.
While researching possible causes of Type 1 reactions, many say:
Foods That Can Cause Type 1 Reactions
Certain medications, including oral contraceptives, prescription drugs, diuretics, blood pressure modifiers, birth controls; pregnancy tests/tests
Certain environmental pollutants
Certain parasites (like parasites, viruses, yeast, etc.)
But despite these reasons, many other causes of Type 1 reactions are unknown. Many Type 1 patients may have a positive gut reaction to allergen and the main thing that differentiates Type 1 from Type 2 is that Type 2 symptoms can occur during a flare. But whether or not there is a Type 2 source that needs treatment, Type 1 symptoms will not improve.
Most Type 1 patients don’t realize it until they experience a Type 1 reaction. Patients usually believe they are being sensitive to something while they are experiencing an allergy but they are actually very fine, and this way they only feel a little bit sick. And there are also many others like me who tell you that while having an allergy makes me feel better, it really doesn’t cure me of my Type 1.
Type 1 reactions also occur along with Type 2 and Type 3 allergies. One thing these reactions have in common is their connection with Type 1. Also, Type 1 allergies, regardless of whether it is Type 1 or Type 2, are linked with Type 3. Another important difference is the location where the Type 1 reaction occurs. Type 2 patients may suffer from a particular part of the lung and a Type 3 patient could feel inflammation in their airways.
Both, Type 2 and 3 patients can have multiple Type 1 reactions. While Type 2 patients can have both Type 1 and Type 2 reactions, Type 3 patients usually have one just for their Type 1 reaction. Types 2 patients may have just one Type 2 reaction or they may have none at all. However, Type 3 patients can have no Type 1 reactions and also feel better after an attack that occurs from Type 1.
When looking for treatment for Type 1, doctors will prescribe a combination therapy. Combinations are combinations of several therapies. On top of that, oral medication can be prescribed. Oral medicine consists mainly of antibiotics, pain pills, antihistamines, antipsychotics, sedatives, etc. Alongside oral medication, other therapies will also be given. Antibiotics are administered by mouth or intravenous. Pain medication is taken via injection.
With injections, antipsychotics are given in the brain and sedatives are administered by inhalation. Antihistamines are used in your nose. Antipsychotics can treat nausea and vomiting. Prolonged treatment with antiviral therapy helps improve symptoms for those who have tried various kinds of therapy but still experience Type 1 reactions.
At first, antiviral and antimalarial therapy can help you feel more sick for longer, but eventually, the effects of your infection fade. After some time, the viral load and the damage to your cells die down and you feel much better. Antipsychotics are given to treat depression. Depending on the symptoms you have, you can have an oral treatment of antidepressants. Those who have suffered from mental illness, psychosis, anxiety, panic disorder, PTSD, eating disorders, addiction, or substance abuse in the past tend to respond well to this kind of treatment, so it is highly recommended for anyone who is suffering from those conditions.
Other therapies give you options and symptoms of heart disease and kidney problems, diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and HIV/AIDS. Those who do not want to live with comorbidities can also have kidney transplants and transplant treatment.
Once someone feels comfortable with treatment, they can start seeing a physician. Usually, when someone has a Type 1 reaction to anything, people tend to think they should stick with their natural medication. Unfortunately, people with Type 2 reactions are more prone to side effects if they take this type of medicine for too long. Therefore, they have to be extremely careful when using these kinds of medication.
Doctors will prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen) to relieve Type 1 symptoms and they will also prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs (such as celecoxetine) to treat type 2 reactions. Combined treatment is the best treatment option for Type 1 patients because the chances of getting both types are extremely small. Although a combination of two or more types of medications won’t cure type 1, combined therapy will help the patient overcome their reactions without causing any serious symptoms, and will cure type 1.
If you have any thoughts about the treatment you want, reach out to a family member, friend, or medical professional, and they’ll be glad to help you out if needed.
