Genetic disease causes a boy to eat only peach
Food is a fundamental habit for survival. In order to keep our bodies functioning well, we need to eat foods from different groups, such as carbohydrates, proteins, good fats and vitamins. However, a two-year-old Canadian boy was born with a rare health condition in which he can only eat one type of food: peach.
Micah Gabriel Masson Lopez was born with an enterocolitis syndrome induced by food protein, an allergy food that makes him intolerant of almost all kinds of food, including his mother's milk.
Due to the problem, when Micah ingests different types of food, he feels from intense gastrointestinal pain to rash. According to his mother, Caroline Masson, Micha was diagnosed with the disease at six months of age. She tells us that the first solid food that Micah had contact with was the banana. "Four hours later he began to vomit and his coloration went from pale to blue in a short time," said his mother.
In addition, Micha also suffers from the Syndrome Di George, a disease of genetic origin, caused by a defect in the thymus, in the parathyroid glands, and in the aorta. It can be classified in 3 ways: partial, complete or transitory, depending on the child's appearance, since not all develop the disease in the same way.
The boy Micah and his family live in Quebec. There, due to the weather conditions, it is difficult to find peaches out of season. With this, according to his mother, Micah eats only once a day.
Unfortunately due to health condition, Micah is underweight and may need hospitalization to put a tube for food. family is running a campaign on GoFoundMe to raise money to pay for Micah's treatment.
The loss of little Laura , who died of sepsis at 18 days of life, was the great kick-start for his father, Jacson Fressatto, to start the project that today has transformed the destiny of several lives: the Robot Laura. The father spent many months researching and investigating hospital cases: "I wanted to find a culprit, who had erred," he recalls.
Allergies are exaggerated immune responses of our body, which develop after exposure to some specific substances. An allergy can occur on the skin or even have respiratory symptoms, such as rhinitis. Allergies are common in both children and adults, and so there are several questions about the subject.
