Long-Term Dietary Elimination Among Adults With Atopic Dermatitis May Affect Nutrition

Some patients with allergic dermatitis (AD) may be avoiding more foods than are necessary due to perceived – rather than actual – food allergies or hypersensitivities, resulting in nutritional deficiencies.

Professional advice is therefore necessary in this subgroup in order to avoid long-term elimination of foods other than those which have been proven to adversely affect such patients.

Researchers in the Klinik fur Dermatologie und allergologie at Charite, Humboldt Universitat, Berlin, Germany they investigated the nutritional status of 47 adults with AD by evaluating food intake protocols, followed by measuring different serum parameters.

The patients were divided into three groups. Over a period of three days, the total calorie intake recommendations were met in 12 patients (group A). In 23 patients (group B) it ranged between 75-100 percent of the requirements and in another 12 patients (group C), the range was between 50 and 75 percent.
