Due to the pain caused by contact with the outside world, he had to live in constant isolation.
Playing with a dog or driving a car was normal for many people, an unattainable dream for Paul Braithwaite.
He lived like this for 20 years until that week when his heart stopped.
He became known as “the world’s most allergic child” for the terrible diagnosis he received. Paul suffered from ‘Eosinophilic Gastroenteropathy’, the first recorded case in the world since 1906.
This rare disease is more common in men and causes eosinophils (blood protective cells) to infiltrate the gastrointestinal tract and cause abdominal pain.
A world full of suffering
The youngster’s life is full of restrictions due to allergies.
“He wanted to live a normal life. He wanted a dog, he wanted to run around the block and learn to drive. He had very complex needs and fought every step of the way. He was in air ambulances, resuscitation and intensive care, nothing got him down,” El Universal quoted him as saying. said his mother, Kelly, who showed up.
A young man has died in Manchester, England. With much suffering, but with the care of her parents, she managed to reach the age of 20, although at that age she still wore clothes for 10- to 11-year-old children, because her growth was stunted by drugs.
“My son is ashamed of his appearance and how small he is. But his courage was unparalleled. He didn’t ask to be born like this, I did my best for him.
Like any child, Paul wanted to play with the dog, eat different foods, walk around the house barefoot, go to the beach, the pool, or lay in the sun. According to him, these little tastes pose a huge risk to his health.
The young man had a rash, vomited, and all contact with outside life created pain and discomfort, but he tried to be happy in isolation.
“I was so lonely”
Realizing that his situation was almost unique, at least as far as it was documented, filled him with great distress.
In 2012, to give him some fun, he took her swimming with dolphins in Florida, which she enjoyed for a while, but her endless allergies and medications unfortunately prevented her from doing much, the Mirror said.
The case has created a challenge for science to continue unraveling the causes responsible for the emergence of this horrible disease many years later. The task is not easy, but advances in genetics may lead to the identification of the gene or genes involved in milk-borne immune disorders.
In the future, isolating this gene will break the line of inheritance of any rare or serious disease, a field of science that is in full development. “I was very lonely, but I was happy. Life is too short. He always wanted to be normal,” lamented his father, Darren Braithwaite.
The funeral of a young man named Paul, who was one with many throughout his life, will be held on July 18.
