Child’s Food Allergies Linked to Anxiety and Other Mental Disorders

Food allergies are common among children, but did you know that abstinence from favorite foods could develop childhood anxiety? In a pediatric study involving 80 children aged four to eight years with food allergy, 57 percent reported symptoms of anxiety. For parents and caregivers whose financial bearing is shaky, managing such a condition could be a cause of worry. Not only do they have to allocate different food items to the child, but also have to ensure ready availability of epinephrine auto-injectors – lifesaving injection – used in case the child eats something that could cause an allergic reaction. A parent or caregiver can help the child develop coping behaviors for alleviating their fear and anxiety arising due to food allergies.

Anxiety Affects Not Just Emotions, But Also Movement Control Areas, Finds Study

Anxiety is a part and parcel of everyone’s life. In some people, stage fright can trigger stress while mingling with strangers at home can make others anxious. In one of the path-breaking studies, researchers found that apart from the limbic system, the motor control areas of the brain or the premotor cortex also show signs of “inhibiting” or freezing when face-to-face with an anxiety-ridden situation. While it is not yet known how inhibition feeds into movement, the importance of the study can be gauged from the fact that unexplained or unresolved anxiety issues in childhood can flare into a full-fledged anxiety disorder in adulthood.

Traumatic Events Inhibit Children’s Coping Abilities

Children showing signs of post-traumatic stress disorder find it difficult to come to terms with the past trauma. This often takes a toll on their mental state, giving rise to a plethora of negative behavioral traits, like regressive behavior, anxiety, introversion and suspicion for others. Studies have shown that nearly 15-43 percent of girls and 14-43 percent of boys could have at least one trauma in their lifetime. Of these, 3-15 percent of girls and 1-6 percent of boys go on to develop PTSD. PTSD could bring epigenetic changes in the brain, and therefore, recognizing the symptoms early on is extremely important. The PTSD symptoms can be controlled effectively if the affected child receives complete family support, is kept away from similar traumatic events, and offered right treatment at the earliest.
