(ORDO NEWS) — Some children have their tonsils removed for various reasons. But does this somehow affect their susceptibility to various diseases in the future?
In fact, the tonsils are part of the human immune system. In 2018, the results of one of the studies showed that there is an association between the removal of the tonsils in childhood and the likelihood of infection in adulthood with various infections of the upper respiratory tract. Among them, for example, tonsillitis, rhinitis, sinusitis, etc.
However, the author emphasizes that this does not mean that the removal of the tonsils is the cause of such diseases. It is likely that children could have weakened immunity for other reasons.
That is, it is impossible to say unequivocally about the influence of such an operation on the occurrence of these diseases and the immune system.
