  1. Translate into English.

  1. Алергія – гіперчутливість організму тварин чи людини до чужорідних речовин, що вводяться повторно.

  2. Алергени можуть потрапляти в організм через шкіру і слизові оболонки або надходити в крові з вогнищ запалення.

  3. Механізм виникнення алергії: як тільки алерген потрапляє в людський організм, на його знешкодження виділяється певна кількість антитіл, якщо в організмі є деякі розлади, то антитіл виділиться в надлишку, що призведе до виділення надмірної кількості високомолекулярних сполук, які і спричиняють розвиток алергії.

  4. Молекули гістаміну у великих кількостях виділяються в кров, коли, наприклад, пилок рослин провокує імунну реакцію. І як наслідок – розширення судин, виділення рідини з дрібних судин, почервоніння шкіри. Це подразнює слизову оболонку носоглотки та викликає нежить і чхання.

  5. Якщо один із батьків страждає на алергію, існує 25% вірогідність того, що у його дитини розвинеться алергія. Шанс захворіти на алергію збільшується до 75-80%, якщо на алергію страждають обоє батьків.

  6. Алергія сама по собі – дуже неприємний стан. Сильний нежить, набряки, свербіж і почервоніння очей. При алергії підвищується стомлюваність, посилюється дратівливість, знижується імунітет. Алергія може провокувати різні захворювання, наприклад такі як: як екзема, гемолітична анемія, бронхіальна астма. Найсерйознішими із можливих проявів алергії – анафілактичний шок: утруднення дихання, судоми, втрата свідомості, значне зниження артеріального тиску, аж до загибелі людини.

  7. Головне у лікуванні алергічного стану – виявити саме той алерген, який викликає нездужання.

Food Allergy

  1. Read and discuss the text.

What is food allergy?

Food allergy is when your immune system reacts to a particular food. This causes inflammation of the body’s tissues, which in some cases can be life-threatening. It should not be confused with food intolerance, which is completely different. In both cases you get symptoms when you eat even small quantities of certain foods. But food intolerance is not caused by the immune system. This means symptoms are usually limited to the digestive system (vomiting, diarrhoea) and are rarely life-threatening.

Who’s at risk?

A lot of people avoid eating certain foods because they mistakenly believe they are allergic to them. Actual food allergy is rare and tends to run in families. Only 5 to 8 in 100 infants and 1 to 2 in 100 adults have a food allergy. You are more at risk if you or any family members have other allergic diseases, such as eczema, asthma and hay fever. If you suspect that you are allergic to a type of food, you should get a diagnosis from your doctor or a qualified specialist in allergic diseases before making substantial changes to your diet.

Why do you become allergic to food?

You develop an allergy when your immune system overreacts to foreign proteins and produces antibodies that attack the body’s own tissues. The foreign protein that causes the reaction is known as an allergen. In food allergy, a particular type of food is the allergen. A food allergy is a type 1 allergy. In this type of allergy, the immune system produces antibodies called IgE-antibody in response to the allergen. The body only produces IgE after exposure to the allergen. This means your body will produce more IgE the next time you eat that food. If enough of this antibody is produced, it will cause symptoms, such as rash and swelling. You cannot get allergic symptoms the first time you eat a new kind of food. But because traces of foods are found within other foods, e.g. nuts in chocolate, you may not be aware of the first time you came into contact with a particular allergen.

Food allergens and cross-reacting allergens

In principle you can be allergic to all kinds of food, but reactions to the following are most common: shellfish, milk, fish, soya beans, wheat, eggs, peanuts, fruit and vegetables, tree nuts – such as walnuts, brazil nuts, almonds and pistachios.

Sometimes a food can be exposed to other allergens and they can cause your body to react to the food. This is known as a “cross- reaction”.

Birch pollen cross-reacts with: hazelnut, walnut, almond and other nuts; apple, pear, cherry, plum and kiwi; potato peel, tomato and carrot; grass cross-reacts with beans and green peas.
