Gosh! You sound like where I’m headed. I’ve been afraid to try the nutritional supplements because the over the counter versions don’t list allergens. I don’t trust them. They should absolutely have… read more

Eliminate them 1 at a time and then see what happens. Then try to reintroduce and see what then happens. Only problem - it sounds easy but you don't individually eat those foods, normally people mix… read more

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.

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
