Food Limitations Have Me Getting Less Than 500 Calories A Day, Nutritionists Are Stumped. What Can I Do?

Food Limitations Have Me Getting Less Than 500 Calories A Day, Nutritionists Are Stumped. What Can I Do?

I am allergic to or sensitive to most common foods: Dairy, grains, gluten, soy, Sesame, legume, nuts, tree nuts, poultry, pork, fish, shellfish, eggs, gourds (melons, cucumbers, pumpkin), green veggies, nightshades, most fruits (stone fruits, apples, citrus). I have contacted formula manufacturers but no one has anything suitable for me. I now have SMA syndrome because I've lost so much weight. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get more calories in? I also have TMJ issues so I have to… read more

I've been corn free (grain free) for over 5 years. This has not resolved my issues. Thanks though. I read labels very carefully due to my allergies and sensitivities.

Has There Been Any Research On Food Allergies And A Possible Correlation With Gout?

Has There Been Any Research On Food Allergies And A Possible Correlation With Gout?

My food allergies are poultry, fish, shellfish, beer, which are all foods high in purines. I’ve been allergic to poultry since birth but the other allergies didn’t start until my 30s and after I was suffering from gout attacks. Once I stopped eating fish/beer the gout attacks stopped. Doctors and my own research have told me that gout is caused by the body’s inability to process purines and uric acid. So I was wondering if there could be a correlation here?

Severe Food Allergies & Severe Asthma - Could This Be MCAS Or Lupus

Severe Food Allergies & Severe Asthma - Could This Be MCAS Or Lupus

I have been diagnoised with severe food allergies & Severe asthma (also skin allergies) a while ago. I have recently met with a specialist who is an immunologist and she seems to now think I have either Mast cell actvation disorder or actually lupus.

I just wanted to see if there is anyone here who has been diagnosed with either condition and is this a common crossover or something people can develop?

Where Do I Start?

Where Do I Start?

I have recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis and my inflammation levels are not coming down. I am waiting to see a Rheumatologist but my one doctor thinks I might have Fibromyalgia as well. A lot of people have told me that I need to try and figure out if something I am eating is causing the inflammation. How do I do the elimination diet? Where do I start?

Start simple. Use a food diary. No matter what test show, let your body be your guide.

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

I have been sick for early 12 years. I have so many food intolerances including gluten, sugar alcohols, and even intolerances to facial creams, sunscreens, and just about every topical lotions that absorb into my skin. Recently I purchased a L’Oreal product that was gluten-free and fragrance free but I still broke out in hives and a burning rash. My primary care placed me on prednisone. What in the world is going on with my body? The 25+ doctors over the years have no idea. I’m beyond… read more

Wheat Allergy - False Positive Chances?

Wheat Allergy - False Positive Chances?

Saw a comment on a group saying something like "after a (severe) allergic reaction ige levels go up a lot and this takes 3 months to clear. If tests are done within 3 months of a reaction specific ige tests and/or skin prick test have a higher chance of false positives"
Is the above true? I can’t find anything supporting this on the internet
Want to check on wheat allergy in particular where an infant 9 months has a 7mm in skin prick (positive control value was 8 for histamine on skin prick… read more

Food Intolerances

Food Intolerances

Hello everyone
