Antibiotic Exposure within the First Year of Life Can Lead to Food Allergy
Antibiotic exposure within the first year of a child’s life is associated with the higher risk of food allergies later according to the new research of scientists from the University of South Carolina.
The team of researchers analysed administrative data from 2007 to 2009 from the College of Pharmacy, School of Medicine and Arnold School of Public Health. They identified 1,504 cases of kids with food allergies and 5,995 controls without allergies, adjusting for month and year of birth, sex, race, and ethnicity.
Having analyzed the data, the scientists have come to the conclusion that children, who experienced antibiotic exposure within the first year of life, were 1.21 times more likely to be diagnosed with food allergy compared to those who hadn’t received an antibiotic prescription.
