Factores de riesgo para padecer alergia alimentaria. (2023). Revista Alergia México, 70(4), 214-221. https://doi.org/10.29262/ram.v70i4.1329



La alergia es el resultado de interacciones genéticas y ambientales, incluso de tiempo, ruta y dosis de exposición a alimentos en pacientes susceptibles. Los factores de riesgo pueden ser: 1) genéticos y 2) ambientales, y estos, a su vez, se dividen en prenatales, perinatales y posnatales. La alergia alimentaria aparece frecuentemente y depende de múltiples factores de riesgo (genéticos y ambientales), que a su vez se dividen en: factores prenatales, natales y posnatales; participan en la expresión de la enfermedad y no en todos los casos es posible la intervención clínica.
