The Ado treatment system was developed by the Soviet immunologist Andrei Dmitrievich Ado. Almost all his life he devoted to the study of allergology and pathological physiology. One of his many works is a hypoallergenic diet. It helps to overcome allergic reactions and significantly reduce the risk of their occurrence in children.
The essence of diet
The purpose of the diet is to identify a problem product that causes an allergic reaction. Using a simple scheme, you will need to first eliminate certain foods from the diet, and then gradually introduce them. This is easy to do for adults, but it’s a little more difficult with children. Also, such a system is useful for pregnant and lactating women. Ado’s diet for the latter group helps prevent the development of allergies and babies.
The power supply system according to Ado allows you 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 outside, it produces special antibodies to suppress them. It 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 “unreasonably strong reaction.”
To date, developed a lot of pharmaceutical drugs to suppress such reactions. However, those who suffer from a similar problem, from taking pills does not become easier. Many allergies, literally, depend 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 are allergic to the family should be attentive. People suffering from other types of allergies (non-food) will also benefit from this program.
In addition to its main benefits, the diet is accompanied by a general improvement of the body. It completely excludes food that contains preservatives, dyes, emulsifiers and similar additives. Reviews about the Ado diet from women reveal another positive side of it. Since the permitted foods will be low-calorie, the result of this system will be a small weight loss.
Ado diet for adults
First of all, before you start a diet, you must consult a doctor. Self-correction of the diet can give negative results. Only after the approval of a specialist, you can start a diet. Under laboratory conditions, it is possible to establish which particular product is being reacted. But there are cases when it is very difficult to do this, and the Ado diet is useful for this.
To do this, you need to figure out which products will have to be excluded and which ones can be left. The scientist A.D. Ado, through observation and research, has compiled a list of highly allergenic components.

In the event of a reaction, it is easier and faster to get the necessary help during the day.
Ado diet for adults lasts 2-3 week. First you need to completely eliminate prohibited foods until the symptoms are completely neutralized. Then gradually introduce one component and monitor the reaction. This scheme will allow you to determine what exactly the body reacts to. In addition, immunity to allergens is often produced. This will completely eliminate some types of allergies.
It is better not to extend the methodology longer than on 21 day. The diet can not be called balanced, it will not have enough proteins and carbohydrates. An incomplete list of nutritional components can lead to problems with the skin, hairline and digestion.

Such records will help the doctor to draw the necessary conclusions. Specialist better to visit at least once a week.

Therefore, it is important to consult a doctor and get tested.

Ado’s diet for pregnant and lactating
The list of products for women in position and lactation is exactly the same as for all others. In future mothers may be hidden allergies that manifest themselves differently from other types of this disease. Symptoms of latent allergies can be excessive weight gain, high blood pressure, severe swelling, preeclampsia.

Any changes to the menu of the expectant or nursing mother should occur under the supervision of a leading doctor.
Ado’s diet for kids
Children are allergic to at least adults. On the contrary, their bodies are even more prone to self-defense, and therefore the risk of an allergic reaction in babies is greater. The hypoallergenic Ado diet for a child is based on the same rules as for adults. If there are children in the family that require a special diet, doctors advise that the whole family should go through such a diet.
During an exacerbation of the disease (manifestation of symptoms) from the children’s menu, you must completely exclude prohibited foods. Even with an average tendency to allergic reactions. The basis of the diet should be cooked vegetables, light soups with lean beef (or without meat), special juices, homemade fruit purees. Fruits and berries with a bright color should be avoided: strawberries, pomegranates, black currants, beets, etc.
After improvement and the complete absence of symptoms of the disease, you can enter one component. This should take place under the supervision of a physician. To begin a diet, also, it is necessary only after approval of the doctor. Unreasonable restriction of the child’s diet can lead to impaired development of the child.
Strict menu for children by Ado is not recommended to extend more than one decade (10 days). After the allergens have been identified, the child will have their own individual hypoallergenic diet.
The Ado Diet is a special treatment program for children and adults. Its effectiveness has been proven from a medical point of view and those people who passed it. It helps to identify the cause of allergies and avoid painful symptoms in the future. This technique reduces the risk of Quincke edema, atopic dermatitis, itching and many other effects of allergies. Pregnant and lactating women, going through such a diet will secure themselves and their child from similar problems in the future.
According to ISAAC (international research), in recent 25 years, cases of allergic rhinitis have tripled around the world. In the period from 1999 g to 2010 g, only in the US 1446 cases of death from intensive use of antihistamines. Techniques to control and prevent this disease are becoming increasingly necessary. Therefore, it is very difficult to overestimate the achievement of A. D. Ado.
