你有想過身體狀況與食物敏感有關嗎? Ever wonder your physical condition is related to food sensitivity?
一半患有濕疹的兒童受食物敏感影響 Half of all children with eczema were sensitised to one or more foods
據統計 (1) 香港有10%至20%人士患濕疹，即 73-147萬人口，兩歲以下的兒童中五個就約有一人受到影響 (2)。 有充分的研究顯示，食物過敏在患有濕疹的兒童為常見，而某些食物更可能會刺激誘發濕疹，使皮膚的病情更加嚴重 (3)。 接觸致敏源後，致敏源在血液流通時使白血球作出反應，皮膚便釋放組織胺。約一半患有濕疹的兒童受食物敏感影響 (4)。 According to statistics (1), 10% to 20% of people in Hong Kong suffer from eczema, which is 0.73-1.47 million people, and about one in five children under two years of age is affected (2). There is adequate literature to suggest that food allergy is common in children with eczema and that certain foods may irritate eczema and make the distressing skin disease worse (3). The skin of children with eczema tends to release histamine from the sensitised mast cells when the antigen arrives through the blood stream. Approximately half of all children with eczema were sensitised to one or more foods (4).
消除食物過敏原可得到明顯改善 significant improvement after elimination of food allergens
研究指出，正確診斷食物過敏和敏感性後消除食物過敏原可讓皮膚症狀得到明顯改善 (4,5)，食物敏感可能是引發濕疹的關鍵因素之一，特別是那些患有中度至嚴重濕疹的患者 (6,7)。 Studies found a significant improvement in skin symptoms after food allergens were eliminated from the diet in children with eczema (4,5). Food allergies seem to play a key role in eczema flares, especially in those children with moderate-to-severe disease. (6,7)
