Early-life Antacid, Antibiotic Exposure May Increase Later Allergy Risk

I have been away attending a congress in England and won’t be back until next Monday. In this regard I am unable to provide my regular Monday blogs. However, I found the following article interesting and decided to share it with you.

The following is from a recent article in JAMA Pediatrics

Infants who received antacids during the first six months of life were twice as likely to have food allergies and had a 50% higher likelihood of developing drug allergies, anaphylaxis or hay fever in early childhood, compared with those who didn’t, according to a study in JAMA Pediatrics. Researchers also found a twofold higher asthma risk and 50% increased odds of anaphylaxis, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis and dust allergies among those who were given antibiotics in the first six months of life.

Those of you who would like more information on the same, in layman’s terms, can click on the link provided. The same appeared April 2 on The Washington Post and was written by Carla Johnson.
