Seafood allergy: Know all about its symptoms and precautionary measures

Food allergies which are quite common in different age group of people can lead to various serious diseases including anxiety, depression, rashes, eye infections and others. 

After a study conducted to know about the side effects of food allergy on kids it was found, "There are a number of possible explanations for the relationship found between food allergy diagnosis and increased social anxiety issues in this sample of pediatric patients. Management of a potentially life-threatening condition may be anxiety provoking, and some children may experience increased social anxiety about being "different" from other children depending on their age and how food allergy is managed by adults in a particular setting," said Renee Goodwin, PhD, in the Department of Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health and lead author, talking about food allergy and it effect on kids. 

However, seafood allergies have also become quite common as people are unaware what kind species they are eating. These species can also be threatened species which leads to many health issues. 

Here are few Shellfish Allergy Symptoms: 

Itchy skin, hives and eczema

Trouble breathing, wheezing
Tingling in the mouth
Swelling of the face, lips, tongue, throat, ears fingers or hands
Abdominal pain, stomach cramps
Nausea or vomiting

Catherine Hobbs, of the University of Exeter, recently was quoted as saying, "It is almost impossible for consumers to know what they are buying." "People might think they are getting a sustainably sourced product when they are actually buying a threatened species," Hobbs added.

"There are also health issues. Knowing what species you are buying could be important in terms of allergies, toxins, mercury content and the growing concern over microplastics in the marine food chain. Our findings demonstrate the need for more informative and accurate seafood labelling," Hobbs said.
