How to better handle allergies

I am having a hard time handling my allergy. Partly because it's rare and people don't think about what it means and partly because alcohol is EVERYWHERE. I have been trying to be better about always telling waiters that their needs to be no alcohol in my food because I am allergic but i still get ignored alot because they believe the "alcohol cooks off" myth.

Test results meaning?


I have long suspected a milk allergy as I itch all over as soon as I eat anything dairy, have heart palpitations and have long had unexplained joint pain. I just had testing done but I'm not sure what the result means? Milk, with a reference range of "Reference Range: Class 0/I kU/L" came back as "high" with 0.13. But when I try to research this online, anything below 0.35 appears to be normal?

Can someone please help me interpret this? Oddly I also got high for shrimp (2.37)with a… read more

Where to get a safe manicure

I'd like to get a set of acrylics to pamper myself, but I am deathly allergic to nuts. I know nail salons tend to use almond oils. Do you know if there is a such thing as an allergy-friendly nail salon?

You would probably need to research a way to get a manicure that didn't use almond oil and then call your local salons to see if they use that process.

How to gain weight???

I’m currently around 90 pounds and I find it so difficult to gain weight. I’m allergic to gluten, dairy, nuts, high fructose corn syrup, soy, apples, bananas, cauliflower, soybeans, shrimp, scallops, and sesame seeds. (I think thats all of them) Has anyone ran into a similar situation? I was wanting to go to a nutritionist, but insurance will not cover it for allergies. They’ll only cover it if I’m overweight.

Informing Wait Staff and Food Service People Regarding Food Allergies

When I go out to restaurants, the first thing I do before I order is inform the server that I have allergies to Gluten and Dairy; even if the restaurant didn't have a dedicated menu, which a lot don't, I can always scan the menu for stuff I can eat and ask for modifications if necessary. When I was out to eat with my fiance tonight, we went to a diner we usually go to once a year when we are in that locale, I tried to inform my server about my… read more
