What is a hypoallergenic diet, on the degree of separation of the products allergenicity

Hypoallergenic diet is called non-specific diet in which food products are used having low allergenicity. In accordance with this diet, all foods are divided into three groups: vysokoallergennye, sredneallergennye and low-allergenic.

Vysokoallergennye products are more likely to cause allergic reactions, such products include: fish, fish eggs, seafood (oysters, shrimp, squid, lobster, and others.), Any whole milk products, eggs, meats, pickles, all kinds of canned food, sharp, salty, acidic foods (such as sauerkraut), any seasoning, red bitter and sweet peppers, squash, tomatoes, eggplant, beets, carrots, sorrel, celery and vegetables red, orange and yellow (melon, pineapple Pineapple: caloric and other features of sweet fruit  Pineapple: caloric and other features of sweet fruit

Principles of clinical nutrition at the vasculitis

At the heart of any form of vasculitis are allergic processes. Therefore, during the exacerbation and for some time after the patient must adhere to a strict hypoallergenic diet. Expansion of the diet can occur only with the permission of the doctor.

Non-specific hypoallergenic diet observed at any exacerbation of allergic diseases is acute, it expands, but adhere to the principles of proper nutrition patients have life.

During acute illness vysokoallergennye products should be completely excluded from the diet. Sredneallergennye products completely eliminate, but try to use them as little as possible. Mainly in the diet of patients with vasculitis in the acute stage there are low-allergenic products.

It has the meaning and nature of cooking. At an exacerbation can not eat fried food, it is better to switch to boiled or stewed. Eating should be 4-5 times a day gradually. This will eliminate the increased load from the gastrointestinal tract, which is almost always suffer from vasculitis. In order to reduce the swelling, it is necessary to minimize the salt intake.

In addition, one should not overeat, try to take as much as possible a variety of foods (within permitted), as allergens can accumulate in the body and did not immediately cause allergic reactions. Therefore, every product you should try to eat no more odd time in three days.

Expand diet for improving the overall condition of the patient with the doctor's permission, which focuses not only on data examination of the patient, but also to research data.

Can low-allergenic foods cause allergies?

It may, like any other substance (medicine, food, drinks). This is one of the main features of the power of patients with vasculitis, when each new product can be introduced gradually, making sure that the patient carries it well. That is a hypoallergenic diet a little, still require an individual approach to each patient.

During exacerbation of vasculitis hypoallergenic diet should be followed for as long as the end aggravation. Then, to resolve the physician is administered in the diet of one previously excluded from the diet product. The next food is introduced not earlier than three days after the previous one.

Diet - is a type of treatment for vasculitis.

 Diet hypothyroidism thyroid
 Hypothyroidism - a decreased thyroid function, ie a reduction in the blood levels of thyroid hormones. These hormones are actively involved in cellular metabolism, so any changes in the body begin to reduce the basal metabolism. In hypothyroidism patients received hormone replacement therapy, and proper diet can significantly improve the condition of patients.

Features cellular metabolism in hypothyroidism

With a lack of thyroid hormones Thyroid hormones: mechanism of action and physiological effects  Thyroid hormones: mechanism of action and physiological effects
   (thyroid hormone) is reduced basal metabolic rate and heat transfer (patients constantly freezing).

Decrease synthesis and increased protein breakdown leads to delayed toxic nitrogenous products in the body. The myocardium (heart muscle), skeletal muscle and accumulates kreatinnin. Serum contains large amounts of protein, while the protein content in tissues is reduced. Violated exchange mucopolysaccharides (polymeric carbohydrate-protein complexes with a predominant portion of the carbohydrate content in the form of mucus), which, together with hyaluronic acids and hondroitilsernoy accumulate in the skin and subcutaneous tissue, forming a slimy skin edema, miksedemu. Mucosal edema also appears in the connective tissue, muscle, nerve trunks and internal organs.

Violation of fat metabolism is expressed in slow absorption of fat tissue, slowing the process of its disintegration and separation of the decay products of the body (the tendency to accumulate fat and obesity). The accumulation of these products in the blood leads to high cholesterol and a tendency to accelerate the formation of atherosclerosis with concomitant diseases - coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis of the lower extremities.

Violation of carbohydrate metabolism manifests delayed absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and a decrease in glucose assimilation of its fabrics. Violated and water-salt metabolism - is associated with increased hydration ability to accumulate in the tissues of mucopolysaccharides and hyaluronic acid - they attract liquid. The daily amount of the urine decreases in blood accumulate chlorides in the heart muscle increased potassium and decreases in sodium.

Basic principles of diet in hypothyroidism

Diet for hypothyroidism the thyroid gland is to take into account the peculiarities of metabolism in this disease. The patient's diet should contain high amounts of protein (lean meat, fish, dairy products) and complex carbohydrates (vegetables, cereals, wholemeal bread), vegetable fats and vitamins (vegetables and fruits).

The protein will boost the metabolism in the cells, tissues, complex carbohydrates - is a lasting source of energy, and they contain fiber that is not digested, it will help to reduce constipation and timely removal of feces from the body. Vegetable fats improve metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
   and reduce blood levels of cholesterol. Vitamins as coenzymes include all biochemical reactions that make up the metabolism and without sufficient metabolic processes will always slow.

From diet to exclude animal fats (fatty meats and dairy products) - in the low-fat animal products contained enough animal fat to maintain normal metabolism. Exclude also need easily digestible carbohydrates - all sweet, butter, flour.

Salt completely rule is not necessary, but you need to limit salty foods - this will help to reduce the swelling in the tissues.

Products, lowering and raising thyroid function

Some products inhibit the ability of inorganic iodine bind to the protein, that is, the ability to synthesize thyroid hormones, they are called strumogennymi. These products include soy, beans, peas, cruciferous vegetables (all kinds of cabbage, turnips, rutabaga, radish), peaches Peaches: benefits and harms of sun fruits  Peaches: benefits and harms of sun fruits

It is not necessary to exclude these products from the diet completely, you need to limit their use. You can completely eliminate only soy products. A cabbage can cook or stew - in this case it strumogennye properties are reduced.

   Thyroid function is also reduced. Therefore, the lack of progesterone should be limited to products that promote the formation of other female sex hormones - estrogen. This animal fats - fatty meat, fish and dairy products.

Increased thyroid function contribute to all products containing iodine - seafood, sea fish, sea salt (you can add common salt), iodized salt.

Dieting can significantly alleviate the condition of patients with hypothyroidism.
