Vitamin D deficiency is found in mainly northern climates and these geographical areas correspond to areas where there are a large numbers of patients with hayfever, asthma, eczema and food allergy. Serving a population in the Northeast of the United States, we commonly see vitamin D deficiency.In a study of over 1000 children with mild asthma those who were Vitamin D deficient had an increased risk of a major asthma attack over a 4 year follow up period.
For parents of kids with food allergic kids holiday treats-from candy to cookies are frightening. Common allergens such as peanuts, tree nuts, milk and egg are often ingredients in many treats. Some kids may experience a rash or red, itchy skin, vomiting, a stuffy, itchy nose, or diarrhea or stomach cramps if they eat a food to which they are allergic. For children who are severely allergic, a single bite of these foods may cause a life-threatening reaction termed anaphylaxis.
