How Does the Common Peanut Allergy Get Worse and Severe Over Time?
Transcript of How Does the Common Peanut Allergy Get Worse and Severe Over Time?
WORSE AND SEVERE
BASIC PEANUT INFORMATION
Basic information about peanuts are that they are not really a nut. They are a legume like peas and lentils. They grow underground unlike tree nuts. A person could also be allergic to nuts that grow on trees, such as almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, and pistachios.
When you think of allergies, you might picture lots of sneezing and runny noses. But unlike seasonal allergies, a nut or peanut allergy can cause a hard time breathing and other very serious health problems. That's why it's very important for someone with a nut or peanut allergy to avoid eating nuts and peanuts, which can be tough because they're in lots of foods THAT CONTAIN NUTS!

WHAT MAKES PEANUT
ALLERGIES SO COMMON?
PENUT ALLERGIES ARE COMMON BECAUSE IF YOU DONT HAVE PEANUT ALLERGIES BUT DONT KNOW HOW YOU MIGHT GET ALLERGIES KEEP ON LISTENING TO THIS POWER POINT.
SO THE NUMBER ONE REASON WHY PEANUT ALLERGIES ARE SO COMMON RIGHT NOW IS THAT MOST PARENTS OR SCHOOLS GIVE CHILDREN HANDY SNACKS SUCH AS ROSTED PEANUTS OR THINGS THAT MIGHT CONTAINED PEANUTS THAT WE DONT KNOW OF. THE IMMUNE SYSTEM GETS SCARED OF THE BAD GERMS THAT ARE IN THE PEANUT AND START KILLING OFF ALL THE GERMS THAT MIGHT HARM US. THAT WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF YOU EAT VERY LITTLE PEANUTS, BUT WHEN YOU START CONSUMING TOO MUCH PEANUTS, THEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM DOES NOT CARE IF IT IS GETING HARMED, IT ONLY CARES IF THE GERMS ARE GETING KILLED AND THEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM GETS DAMAGED.
THIS IS A PEANUT GERM
WHAT FOODS MIGHT CONTAIN PEANUTS THAT WE DONT KNOW OF?
-Sauces such as hot sauce, chili sauce, mole sauce, salad dressing, pesto, and gravy
-some vegetarian food products, especially meat substitutes
-baked goods like cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, and etc.
-sweets such as candies, puddings, chocolate, taffy, and etc.
WHEN YOU DAMAGE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM, YOU START GETTING SIDE AFFECTS AND SYMPTOMS OF PEANUT ALLERGIES. BUT THIS ONLY STARTS HAPPENING BETWEEN THE AGES OF 5-8 BECAUSE AT THAT TIME, CHILDREN'S IMMUNE SYSTEM STARTS DEVELOPING AND IS STILL WEAK. IF YOU ARE OVER THIS AGE, IT IS UNLIKELY THAT YOU WILL DEVELOP A PEANUT ALLERGY. THAT IS HOW AND WHEN YOU GET THE MOST COMMON ALLERGY TO PEANUTS.
HOW PEANUT ALLERGIES GET WORSE
LOOKS YUMMY RIGHT? BUT LOOK
SOOO GOOD! THAT MY FRIEND IS A VEGGIE BUGER AND MEAT SUBSTANCE !
IT IS SAFE TO SAY THAT PEANUT ALLERGIES AND ANY OTHER ALLERGY CAN GET WORSE. AN ALLERGY GETS WORSE WHEN A PERSON IS EXPOSED TO THE ALLERGY MULTIPLE TIMES.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE LEARNED ABOUT THE BASIC FACTS OF PEANUT ALLERGIES, IT IS TIME WE TALK ABOUT WHAT MAKES PEANUT ALLERGIES MORE SEVERE OVER TIME .
HOW TO TREAT PEANUT ALLERGIES WHEN THEY GET WORSE !
WHEN AN ALLERGY GETS WORSE, IT STARTS TO SPREAD AROUND YOUR BODY, FROM RASHES AND THEN ITCHINESS, THEN RED EYES AND THE WORSE STAGE IS WHEN YOU CAN BARELY EVEN BREATH. WHEN THAT OCCURS OR HAPPENED TO YOU, IT IS IMPORTANT TO CARRY AN EPI PEN. WHAT AN EPI PEN DOES IS THAT IT HAS ADRENALIN INSIDE ITS MARKER LIKE CONTAINER. WHEN SOMEONE IS GOING THROUGH AN ANAPHYLAXIS,(HAVING AN ALLERGIC REACTION THAT CAN CAUSE THE BODY TO RELEASE CHEMICALS CAUSING LIFE-THREATENING SYMPTOMS). THEY NEED SOMEONE TO JAB THEIR EPI PEN TO THEIR OUTTER THIGH. THIS MOTION CAUSES THE NEEDLE INSIDE OF THE EPI PEN TO SHOOT OUT AND IT RELEASES THE ADRENALIN. THE ADRENALIN HELPS CALMS THE HEART DOWN ABLING THE PERSON TO START BREATHING AND HAVING TIME TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PEANUT ALLERGY GETS SEVERE
WHEN A PEANUT ALLERGY GETS SEVERE, IT IS PRETTY CLEAR THAT THERE WILL BE MORE HASSLE INTO CARING FOR YOUR BODY. FOR ONE, YOU WILL NEED TO BE AS CAUTIOUS AS POSSIBLE FOR READING LABLES ON FOOD PRODUCTS. IF THE LABLE SAYS; "PEANUTS", "MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS", "MADE IN A FACTORY THAT ALSO HANDLES PEANUTS" DO NOT GET IT! IF A PRODUCT SAYS THAT IT IS MADE IN THE SAME FACILITY AS PEANUTS, IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT THERE WILL BE CROSS-CONTAMINATION. THIS IS WHERE THE BACTERIA OR ANY OTHER MICRO-ORGANISM ACCIDENTALLY TRANSFERS FROM ONE OBJECT TO ANOTHER. WHEN A PEANUT ALLERGY COMES TO EXTREM MEASURES, YOU WILL NEED TO CARRY A EPI PEN AT ALL TIMES.AN EPI PEN WILL BE ABLE TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!
A BRIEF SUMMARY
THEREFORE, YOU HAVE LEARNED THE BASIC
INFORMATION ABOUT PEANUTS SUCH AS THAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY LEGUMES. YOU LEARNED HOW A PERSON CAN DEVELOP A PEANUT ALLERGY AND WHY IT IS SO COMMON. YOU HAVE REALIZED SOME OF THE UNKNOWN FOOD PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN PEANUTS LIKE CANDY AND VEGETARIAN MEAT SUBSTANCE. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOU HAVE LEARNED WHAT MAKES A PEANUT ALLERGY GET WORSE AND SEVERE OVER TIME. HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR LIFE, AND HOW IT SHOULD BE TREATED.
THIS IS HOW AN EPI PEN LOOKS LIKE.
These are the organs of the immune system you can
