Do Your Doctors Ask If You're Still Allergic To The Foods You Say You Are?

Do Your Doctors Ask If You're Still Allergic To The Foods You Say You Are?

Every time I see my doctor he ask if I am still allergic to coconut. I am not gonna eat & find out. Then get yell at by the hospital. I am tired of it every appointment.

I've never been asked that question and actually I would be a little offended. I'm with you, I'm never going to put one of the foods I'm allergic to in my mouth!! I do everything I can to avoid accidental contact with those foods.

No they dont, but I suppose as son has used his auto injectors about 7 times! As for our daughter who is ige allergic, but not got a severe allergy, her skin prick tests still confirm allergy. I think it is very odd of a doctor to ask that question, I would ask him/her WHY he/she felt the need to ask it!

I am a caterer & my chef friends who study nutrition as I do, working with my GI have me keeping a food/exercise journal which is a great help identifying foods I can not tolerate

I diagnosed my son's dairy allergy to the milk I drank while nursing him. When he was 6 I told the new pediatrician his reactions if there was dairy in food. He asked what happened when my son drank a glass of milk! He was surprised when I told him he'd never had a glass of milk. Found another doctor.
