    How to understand that a child has weak immunity

    According to Gromadina, the immune system of children and adults is a complex set of protective reactions.

    “The immune system of children works from the first days of the appearance of the fetus in the womb, every minute of our lives. And in most cases, it works very well – we do not even notice it.

    very serious therapy regimens, including the introduction of immunoglobulin preparations or courses of rather heavy antibacterial drugs, and so on to strengthen children’s immunity,” the doctor said.

    She added that such treatment is not the safest, and an ordinary child, who, due to age and immaturity of immunity, has the right to get sick up to 10-11 times a year, is not shown. a period of temperature, including high, recovers within 1-2 weeks without a reasonable need for hospitalization and the appointment of repeated courses of antibiotic therapy, then such a child has a state of immunity in perfect order. He simply adapts to new viruses and bacteria for him, ”the immunologist explained.

    According to her, signs of immunodeficiency and disorders can be suspected when a child suffers more than two severe bacterial (purulent) infections per year, when he needs, and often repeatedly, hospitalizations, when repeated courses of antibacterial drugs are prescribed, while drugs from the so-called reserve group are used.

    Gromadina added that such children should be observed by a pediatrician together with an immunologist for timely help their immune system and protect against viral and bacterial infections.

    How to quickly boost immunity

    “The state of children’s immunity depends on many factors, each of which is important in conjunction with the others. Therefore, unfortunately, there is no single “magic button” by pressing which you can strengthen the immune system and make it start or intensify its work in the child’s body,” said the expert.

    She added that the disease, during which the body of adults and children gets acquainted with various viruses and bacteria, is one of the mechanisms for stimulating our immune system.

    This is how our immunity trains, increasing its strength, gaining experience. It is believed that a child of preschool age can get sick almost every month.

    Based on the mechanisms of the natural struggle of immunity against the disease, an easier way to stimulate the immune system has been invented – this is vaccination, ”said the immunologist.

    According to the expert, it is vaccination that today is a fast, effective and safe way to “raise” immunity. She added that modern immunologists and related specialists are not very fond of the definition of “raising immunity”, since we are talking about supporting the immune system and its training.

    think about vaccinating against these infections in order to enable full-fledged immunity to them to form in the autumn-winter period, ”the doctor advised.
    Also, according to Gromadina, the image of our life. This is the mode and daily routine, including time for rest.

    Regular moderate physical activity helps maintain immunity and a faster recovery process after illness.

    The doctor also noticed that stress can negatively affect immunity.

    What foods increase immunity in a child

    According to Gromadina, a rational varied diet, rich in vitamins, microelements, fiber and protein, gives the body strength to cope with viruses and bacteria faster.

    Selenium and other vitamins, such as vitamin E, as well as trace elements such as manganese, zinc and copper also help the immune system fight infectious diseases. An important trace element involved in the work of many systems of our body, including the immune system, is iron, which we can replenish by eating meat, tomatoes, legumes, and iodine from sea fish. It is desirable to get the whole range of vitamins and microelements from food,” the doctor said.

    an additional source of positive emotions and the right way to form normal intestinal microflora, the role of which in the work of our immune system is great,” Gromadina explained. immunity is affected by the fact whether the mother feeds him with formula or breast milk. It has been proven that the latter contains antibodies that are in the blood of a woman, and protects the child from diseases.
