What symptoms can food allergies create?

What symptoms can food allergies create?

I am diagnosed with tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, wheat, corn, soy and egg white allergies. None of them showed up on my skin testing but do with the blood testing IGE response. What kind of symptoms can these allergens be causing? I am diabetic, have PCOS and struggle with depression/anxiety/adhd.

Will an elimination diet help?

I have already had to stop eating melons, squash, pumpkin, because of a cross-contamination. I'm allergic to artificial colorings, latex, aspirin, bananas. My diet is limited.

Does anyone have a reaction to the food that causes a reaction hours after ingesting the particular food?

Does anyone have a reaction to the food that causes a reaction hours after ingesting the particular food?

I have a severe tree nut allergy, and I tried the challenge approach in the allergist's office. After 5 hours I ingested one whole almond, but because I did not show any symptoms in the office he told me I could eat almonds (ha, ha). I didn't have a reaction until 2 hours later. My tongue began swelling. Needless to say, I stay away from all tree nuts!

Allergic to shellfish. Want to know if I can eat tuna.

Allergic to shellfish. Want to know if I can eat tuna.

Comapny I wrote to assured there was no cross contamination and safe but I read that tuna eat shrimps and shellfishes. Since they remove the intestines, it is safe to assume there is no trace and no danger?
