Can Fruits Really Trigger Allergies?
Dr. Sanjeev Khanna and Dr Sandeep Kadam said that people should not be surprised if this happens. The human body is known to have or develop intolerance to some foods. One of them is fruit. There are cases in the world, people experience allergic to papaya, grapes and sometimes apples.
However, allergic reactions can be delayed and prevented directly, depending on the intensity of intolerance. Therefore, if you have this condition do not immediately panic, because the symptoms are similar to other allergies.
According to Times of India, there are many causes that trigger allergies to fruit. One of them is viral infections. Certain infections can lead to intolerance of fructose in the body. And fruits high in fructose content can cause the body’s intolerance to fruit.
Changes in weather can also affect. Consumption of certain fruits combined with changes in the environment can trigger adverse reactions. This is why doctors often advise their patients to refrain from eating grapes or other fruit that contains nutrients, such as oranges, during the rainy season. Being in dirty environments or easily spread the infection combined with the consumption of fruit which are not right can act as a trigger of allergies.
Symptoms which usually appears are in the form of itching, swelling of the throat, nausea, swollen lips, rash and redness, vomiting and even diarrhea. In extreme cases, it can trigger asthma reactions, or worse, it can cause death.
In many cases, intolerance reactions occur when the fruit is consumed in a raw state. After the fruit is cooked, the effect is substantially reduced. Therefore, the processing of fruit before consuming it can be carefully selected. Although nutrition is reduced, but it would be far better than suffering from allergies.
