Are Allergies Hereditary?

Happy family.

Or maybe you silently curse every time you put on a bathing suit because you surely got your pale skin from your father. Genetics play a huge role in your physical and mental development. That’s the reason when you go to the doctor for an ailment, they ask about your family history.

Certain illnesses are passed down generation to generation, while others seem to appear out of nowhere. If you have allergies, you might know if your parents had them as well. The fact that allergies seem to be hereditary is only one factor to look at. If both your parents had allergies, you have a 75 percent chance of having them affect your life. The chance goes down to 50 percent if only one of your parents had the condition. There are also other factors that come into play like the air quality you live in which are environmental problems, diet, and stress levels. Even pregnancy can sometimes bring up allergies in people who have never had them before. The body is an amazing system capable of so much. Some people tend to outgrow allergies as they age, while others develop them later in life. The mysteries of your body are endless.

An allergy is your body’s incorrect response to stimulus. Your body should be able to handle common allergens such as dust, pollen, or pet dander, but for those with allergies, it simply cannot. Scientists from the John Hopkins Institute of Genetic Medicine have discovered that there is a single gene mutation that is responsible for all types of allergies. By identifying this abnormality in the genes, it’s going to help researchers figure out better ways to fight allergies in people with the right treatments and medication.
