Anyone here with chickpea, lentil and pea allergy

My daughter has anaphylaxis reaction to chickpeas, lentils and peas. We are struggling with gram ( chick pea flour) and pea and lentil protein being substituted for wheat in effort to address gluten allergies. She reacts even if these foods have been prepared in same environment as other food. Ie cooked in same oil in restaurants. She has developed major anxiety about food following 2 anaphylactic attacks recently.

Travelling on Emirates to Maldives with Severe Milk, Nuts, Sesame and Egg allergies

We have been on holiday, but later on this year we are going to the Maldives. Would be great to read any advice that you think would help us on our journey! 3 girls with severe allergies and myself. We're flying Emirates to Dubai then Dubai on to Male. We chose a resort that didn't serve buffet style food as that would not be helpful for our allergies. We felt we couldn't compromise on the food in a resort. Many thanks Sarah x

Introducing Peanuts

Our pediatrician wants me to introduce my 5 month old to peanuts. She said that they have been informed from the Medical Board with scientific studies that actually introducing known food allergens to a baby earlier in life while their immune system is still developing has shown to greatly reduce the chances of developing that particular allergy since their bodies learn that it's "normal" and not something foreign. I'm all for this because she showed me the information and it does make sense.… read more

Are this allergy related?

Has anyone had this or know if they really caused by food allergies? We avoid everything my son is allergic to. But the past year has been hectic with multiple admissions intp the hospital due to severe abdominal pains and this is wat they found when the colonoscopy was done. We dont have a definite diagnosis seems more like Crohns but the gastroenterologist thinks its related to his food allergies. Pls see pic below. Thanks

Does anyone get light-headed as a symptom?

I’ve had itchy mouth, wheezing, instant diarrhea when eating strawberries, although blood testing was negative. Today an apple made me feel light-headed, and “just not right.” My husband thinks it’s just anxiety (maybe it is). Is anyone else affected this way?
