Season change is an “opportunity” for viruses and bacteria to easily attack children and cause a series of diseases such as flu, dengue fever, hand, foot and mouth… complicated developments, the risk of disease exists.
Pediatric patients increase rapidly during the season change, not only due to COVID-19
The erratic, wet and rainy weather is also the time when epidemics in children break out, especially respiratory diseases and infectious diseases such as viral fever, dengue fever, hand, foot and mouth disease, chickenpox… At Children’s Hospital Dong 2, in March, there were times when nearly 3,000 children were admitted to the clinic every day, with symptoms of fever and cough, of which about 400 cases were suspected of being infected with COVID-19.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), seasonal flu and Covid-19 both spread through the respiratory tract and cause similar symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever, headache and fatigue. Currently, it is the time of spring-summer transition, children can suffer from many respiratory diseases, have symptoms of fever and cough, not just Covid-19. While the Omicron strain of the Covid-19 virus spreads quickly, dengue fever, hand, foot and mouth disease … are also raging, many experts fear the possibility of children “double infection” with the two diseases is very high.
Children under 6 years old often have poor resistance, because the immune system is not yet complete and is in the immune gap stage, plus the children’s airways are still short and narrow, so viruses and bacteria can easily penetrate. Therefore, children are easily infected by the attack of pathogens entering from the outside. If a child is infected with Covid-19 and other illnesses at the same time, the disease can become worse and the treatment process is much more difficult.
To avoid being infected with many diseases at the same time, experts recommend that people follow epidemic prevention and control measures. In particular, priority should be given to the protection of high-risk groups such as the elderly and young children because of their weak immune systems and easy infection.
“3 golden rules” to increase resistance and prevent diseases for children
Young children often get sick due to immature immune systems, many children are anorexic or eat poorly, resulting in poor nutrition and inadequate, defense systems that are not strong enough, are now even more vulnerable to attack. To prevent children from getting sick during epidemics and seasonal changes, parents need to master the following “3 golden rules”:
1. Fully vaccinated, on schedule
Over 2 years, the Covid epidemic has interrupted the immunization schedule of many children. Many parents worry and limit taking their children out because they are afraid that their children will have to come into contact with strangers. However, vaccination is the best way to create active immunity for children. When fully vaccinated, children will reduce the risk of disease as well as limit serious complications of the disease.
2. Keeping home and personal hygiene
Seasonal weather is a favorable condition for bacteria and viruses to multiply and develop. They can exist everywhere, clinging to objects in the house. Therefore, parents need to pay attention to cleaning the house and children’s toys as well as instructing children to wash their hands often, avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth.
3. Supplement “essential” micronutrients for the immune system
Nutrition is considered the “key” to help children have healthy resistance and fight disease. When it comes to increasing resistance, parents often think of vitamin C. Yes, but it’s not enough, our immune system needs more than that. Report at Harvard University Fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E or minerals such as zinc and iron are all vital micronutrients for the immune system. In particular, experts recommend the addition of specific resistance-boosting active ingredients such as: Beta-glucan because it has an effective immune support role.
Dr. Mohamed (BV Mayo Clinic-USA) said: “Beta-glucan helps activate the entire immune system, doubling the number of immune cells in just 72 hours.” Moreover, Beta-glucan also stimulates the specific immune system to produce antibodies, increasing the ability to recognize and destroy viruses and bacteria that cause disease.
Research of the group Dr. Sapane Grauz on 151 children in Spain showed that: The group of children supplemented with Beta-glucan had the number of times of respiratory disease (otitis media, common cold, tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis and pneumonia) significantly reduced, from 8-11 times/year to 4-6 times/year. Moreover, supplement enough Beta-glucan It also reduces the rate of children being hospitalized, the rate of drug use and children having fewer absences from school.
In Vietnam, this special active ingredient is now available in the product Gadopax Forte with outstanding high content up to 2000mg/100ml. Not only contains Beta-glucan Pure, quality, Gadopax Forte breakthrough formula with vitamins C, D, zinc. This combination provides an optimal synergistic effect, creating a comprehensive child protection circle.
Faced with the situation that the number of Covid-19 cases in children is increasing at the right time of the season change, it is extremely important to apply protective measures and proactively increase children’s resistance. And product selection increase resistance quickly and safely as Gadopax Forte is an effective method that is being chosen by many parents and is very satisfied.
Gadopax Forte Helps to increase resistance thanks to high content of High Beta-(1,3-1,6)-D-glucans combined with Zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin D are the leading micronutrients that help stimulate the immune system to work effectively, increasing outstanding resistance.
Gadopax Forte Support to increase the body’s resistance, support to reduce the risk of bacterial and viral diseases.
