What Is Alpha-Gal Syndrome? This was first found in 2009.Alpha-gal syndrome is an allergy to things like beef, pork, lamb, venison, rabbit, and other animal products that come from mammals. It was first discovered in 2009. Alpha galactose, the source of the allergy, is a sugar present in most animal cells. Alpha-gal symptoms develop after certain tick bites.What Causes Alpha-Gal Syndrome?Alpha-gal syndrome is caused when a tick bites you, and that bite gives you the alpha galactose molecule. In the U.S., the lone star tick is the primary source of alpha-gal allergy.The lone star tick is concentrated in the eastern and south-central regions of the U.S. and is carried by deer. In Europe, Australia, and Asia, alpha-gal molecule has been found in different types of ticks.What Happens If You Have Alpha-Gal?Alpha-gal symptoms differ from other allergic reactions in that they are significantly delayed. Reactions to animal products will happen within eight hours of eating. This delay, and the relative newness of alpha-gal's discovery, means the syndrome goes undiagnosed. Alpha-gal syndrome reaction symptoms often involve: Rashes Hives Nausea Vomiting Difficulty breathing Low blood pressure Dizziness Stomach pain Extreme itchingHowever, symptoms of alpha-gal vary from case to case. The severity of these symptoms also varies from person to person and can become more severe as time goes on. Drinking alcohol or exercising after you eat may slow down the reaction time. Sometimes the symptoms of a reaction from an alpha-gal allergy can even lead to death. What Is the Treatment for Alpha-Gal?Alpha-gal syndrome doesn’t go away, but you can manage symptoms by avoiding: Meats, organs, and blood of mammals Dairy products Gelatin and other animal derivatives Food cooked with lard Any food with any sort of mammalian product Drugs, medicines, hygiene products, and household products with animal bi-products Anything with the thickening agent carrageenan Flounder eggs The cancer medicine cetuximabYou can take antihistamines or another type of allergy medicine to manage your symptoms if you have a reaction. However, if you are having an extremely severe reaction, you will need to be injected with epinephrine or even go to the emergency room. Many people with alpha-gal even carry around an EpiPen. ...

Spending just one hour less sitting in a chair every day can help reduce your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.Most people don’t even get close to achieving the recommended two-and-a-half hours of moderate intensity exercise—such as brisk walking, water aerobics, dancing or gardening—every week, and so swapping sitting for even an hour of light exercise every day could do wonders for your health.Light exercise includes casual walking or a gentle bike ride—essentially any activity that doesn’t have you break sweat—and even this level of activity can help reduce heart disease risk, say researchers from the University of Turku in Finland.But people who already have heart disease or diabetes probably won’t be helped by just sticking to light exercise, although it might stop the condition from worsening.The researchers tested the impact of exercise on two groups: one spent one hour less a day sitting and replaced it by standing or doing some light exercise, while the other group carried on with their sedentary lifestyle without exercising.After three months, the researchers found that those in the light exercise group had better blood sugar regulation, improved insulin sensitivity and better liver health.
