Lone star ticks are in more places in the United States
Researchers recently haveI found that the presence of an annoying tick develops through the United States,The New York Times Report on May 13. According to the newspaper, the only star tick - named as such because of the white spot on the backs of women - is generally in the southern part of the country, but the experts have started to spot this pest in certain number in some Midwest and northwest. Scientists say that this expansion is largely due to global warming, because ticks have more time to feed on hosts and reproduce when there are more hot days each year.
"What we see now is a large open door so that ticks continue to extend their range more north; bringing more people into the fold of diseases transmitted by arthropods", "Michael Raupp, PhD, professor emeritus in entomology at the University of Maryland, saidThe New York Times. "We are venturing into unexplored waters in so much dimensions with climate change."
This tick can trigger an allergy to meat in some people.
The Solitaire Tick Star can spread a number of health and health problems, but one of the most disturbing is Alpha-Gal syndrome (AGS). According to the Mayo clinic,This condition is "A type of food allergy recently identified with red meat and other products made from mammals", most often caused by a bite of a lonely tick. The researchers began to notice an alpha-ga allergic reaction in 2006, but they only connected it to tick stings that several years later,The New York Times reported.
"The bite transmits a sugar molecule called alpha-ga in the person's body," said the Mayo clinic. "In some people, this triggers a reaction from the immune system which later produces light and light allergic reactions to red meat, such as beef, pork or lamb or other mammal products."
If you notice some symptoms after eating meat, you may have an alpha-ga syndrome.
Food allergies are not always serious, but the AGS is a "serious, potentiallypotentially fatal allergic reaction“Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warn. According to the agency, the symptoms of this condition generally occur two to six hours after eating meat or dairy products and may include one of the following elements: hives, rash, nausea, nausea, vomiting, burns stomach, indigestion, diarrhea, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing, a drop of blood pressure, dizziness, madness, severe stomach pain and swelling of the lips, throat, tongue or eyelids.
Deborah Fleshman, a former nurse who was diagnosed with Alpha-Gal syndrome, saidThe New York Times That her symptoms began in 2008 when she woke up to the legs that had turned the red-beet and a torso covered with Welts, some being wide. At the time, she said she had the impression that she was "dying".
"It looks like you are on fire, then you feel like you are sleeping with a cactus," she said. "Itching is unbearable."AE0FCC31AE342FD3A1346EBB1F342FCB
You should call your doctor if you think you have AGs.
An AGS reaction can also be very different from one person to another, and those who have the condition may not have an allergic response every time they are exposed to meat, according to the CDC. "It is never predictable. I know people who spend the night in the emergency parking lot, while waiting for a reaction,"Jennifer Platt, Auxiliary professor in public health at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and co-founder of non-profit non-profit conditions United, explained toThe New York Times.
Anyway, you should discuss the possibility of AGS with your doctor if you feel symptoms related to the condition, especially if you know that you have been bitten by a tick. According to the CDC, the AGS must be treated and managed in the care of health care providers, as patients may have to avoid certain foods, products, vaccines and drugs.
"If you think you can have GAs, go talk to your health care provider," advises the agency. "The GA can be serious or even fatal. Look for immediate emergency care if you have a serious allergic reaction."
In the United States, thousands of people have been tested positive for the condition.
A 2014 study in theJournal of Medical Entomology reported that the solo tick star hadalready been located in 39 states from 2012. according toThe New York Times, some cards indicate that the Tick Star Solitaire has advanced as far to the west as Nebraska and as northeast as Maine, with the possibility that the tick has or can establish a presence in Washington, Oregon and California also.
"The spatial distribution of the species has definitively increased by at least 30 to 50% during the last half century", "Ram Raghavan, PHD, deputy professor in epidemiology and ecology of diseases at the University of Missouri which has mapped the spread of the Tick Star Solitaire, told the newspaper.
As the presence of lonely star ticks increases, alpha-ga syndrome instances. In 2018, more than 34,000 people in the United StatesTested positive for the condition, according to an article published in April 2021. by theNew York Times, a publicly generated card indicates that the AGShit individuals Regarding Washington and Hawaii.
