Recommended reading: " Why you can't go on a diet on your own". The Ado therapeutic nutrition system was developed by the Soviet immunologist Andrei Dmitrievich Ado. He devoted almost his entire life to the study of allergology and pathological physiology. One of his many works is a hypoallergenic diet, which helps to overcome allergic reactions and significantly reduce the risk of their occurrence in children.

The essence of the diet

The purpose of the diet is to identify the problematic food that causes an allergic reaction. Using a simple scheme, you must first eliminate certain foods from the diet, and then gradually introduce them. This is easy for adults, but a little more difficult with children. Also, the Ado diet is useful for pregnant and lactating women, it helps to prevent the development of allergies in babies.

The Ado eating system helps to cope with a painful reaction to food. Unfortunately, allergies can be caused by a number of other reasons: dust, wool, synthetic substances. This is because the body is trying to protect itself from harmful substances and viruses. Actually, that is why histamine (allergic) reactions occur. When foreign substances enter the body from the outside, special antibodies are produced in it to suppress them. This helps a person to overcome many viral and fungal diseases. But sometimes antibodies begin to “attack” absolutely harmless components. In medicine, this is called an "unnecessarily strong reaction."

To date, a host of pharmaceutical preparations have been developed to suppress such reactions. However, for those who suffer from a similar problem, taking pills does not make it easier. Many allergy sufferers are literally dependent on their medications. Therefore, the Ado diet is often recommended for pregnant women in order to minimize the risk of the disease in the child. First of all, those who have allergies in the family should be careful. People suffering from other types of allergies (non-food) will also benefit from this program.

In addition to its main benefits, diet contributes to the overall health of the body. It completely excludes foods that contain preservatives, colorants, emulsifiers and similar additives. Reviews of the Ado diet from women reveal another of its positive aspects - since the allowed foods are low in calories, this system will result in a slight weight loss.

Ado diet for adults

First of all, before starting a diet, you should definitely consult a doctor. Self-correction of the diet can give negative results. Only after the approval of a specialist can you start a diet. In laboratory conditions, it is possible to establish which product the reaction occurs on. But there are times when it is very difficult to do this, and this is exactly what the Ado diet comes in handy for.

To do this, you need to figure out which products will have to be excluded, and which can be left. The scientist, based on his own observations and research, compiled a list of highly allergenic products and compounds.

There is also a small list of products that have an average degree of reaction. These include: pork, meat rabbit, peas, bananas, turkey, green peppers. Such ingredients can be used for the Ado diet menu, but with caution. It is recommended to eat them only in the morning and before lunch. In the event of a reaction, it is easier and faster to get the necessary help during the day.

The Ado diet for adults lasts 2-3 weeks. First you need to completely eliminate prohibited foods until the symptoms are completely neutralized. Then gradually introduce one component at a time and monitor the reaction. Such a scheme will allow you to determine what exactly the body reacts to. In addition, immunity to allergens is often developed. This will completely eliminate some types of allergies.

The technique should not be extended longer than 21 days. The diet cannot be called balanced, it will lack proteins and carbohydrates. An inadequate diet can lead to skin, hairline, and digestive problems.

Do not take antihistamines while on a diet. This will hide the real effect of products on the body. Also, it is important to keep a gastronomic diary, in which you will need to write down everything that was eaten and your well-being. Such records will help the doctor to draw the necessary conclusions. It is better to visit a specialist at least once a week.

Ado menu for adults

The menu for the hypoallergenic diet will change every week. The more time passes, the easier it will be to make your diet, as more and more products will be included in it. The first seven days will consist exclusively of permitted components. But, even from them you can make and cook a lot of delicious dishes.

After taking one or another ingredient, you need to wait a few days and write down the changes in the state in a notebook. The deterioration in well-being may not necessarily be caused by the product. Therefore, it is important to consult a doctor and take tests.

Recipes for a hypoallergenic diet

The list of products for the initial stage of the diet is quite narrow, but even with it you can come up with a lot of delicious dishes. With the same ingredients, the menu can look different every day.

Ado diet for pregnant and lactating

The list of products for women in position and during lactation is exactly the same as for everyone else. Expectant mothers may have hidden allergies that do not manifest themselves like other types of this disease. Symptoms of latent allergies can be excessive weight gain, high blood pressure, severe swelling, preeclampsia. Subsequently, intolerance to any product passes to the child, but sometimes in a more complex form.

Pregnant women and nursing mothers should undergo a special test for the concentration of Ig G4 antibodies in the blood. The menu for pregnant women will completely exclude fatty, fried, red. To prepare cereals, the cereal must first be soaked in water for 1.5-2 hours. In the warm season, it is recommended to use vegetables and fruits according to the season, and frozen in winter. Juices should not contain sugar and preservatives. Children's drinks are best. Natural juice can be diluted with boiled water. Dairy products should be low in fat.

Any changes in the menu of the expectant or nursing mother should take place under the supervision of the leading physician.

The Ado Diet for Children

Children are as susceptible to allergic diseases as adults. On the contrary, their body is even more prone to self-defense, so the risk of an allergic reaction in babies is greater. The Ado hypoallergenic diet for a child is based on the same rules as for adults. If there are children in the family who require a special diet, doctors advise the whole family to go through such a diet.

During an exacerbation of the disease (symptoms), prohibited foods should be completely excluded from the children's menu. Even with an average tendency to allergic reactions, the basis of the diet should be boiled vegetables, light soups with lean beef (or without meat), special juices, homemade fruit purees. Fruits and berries with bright colors should be avoided: strawberries, pomegranate, blackcurrant, beetroot, etc.

After improvement and the complete absence of symptoms of the disease, you can enter one component at a time. This should happen under the supervision of a doctor. Starting a diet, also, is necessary only after the approval of the doctor. Unreasonable restriction of children's diet can lead to violations in the development of the child.

A strict menu for children according to Ado is not recommended to be extended for more than one decade (10 days). After identifying allergens, the child will have their own individual hypoallergenic diet.

In conclusion

The Ado Diet is a special treatment program for children and adults. According to ISAAC (an international study), cases of allergic rhinitis have tripled worldwide in the last 25 years. Between 1999 and 2010, there were 1,446 deaths in the US alone from heavy use of antihistamines.

Techniques to control and prevent this disease are becoming increasingly necessary. Therefore, it is difficult to overestimate the achievement of A. D. Ado. The effectiveness of his diet has been clinically proven and by the people who have taken it. It helps to identify the cause of the allergy and avoid painful symptoms in the future. This technique reduces the risk of angioedema, atopic dermatitis, itching and many other consequences of allergies. Pregnant and lactating women, having passed such a diet, will protect themselves and their child from such problems in the future.
