Yes I have Alpha Gal.... I have had numerous anaphylatic reactions, and do not go anywhere with out my epi:( I am super sensitive to dairy products as well, and have other contributing allergies, and celiac.

Yes. It is called Alpha Gal 1,3. I have it. So do thousands upon thousands. Need help with it? There's a great group on Facebook too. UNC is working on it too. Dr. Commins, I think his name is, there in Raleigh, NC. It is in Europe, Australia, S. Africa... it's everywhere. I'm sorry you have it. It's a bad thing. I, fortunately, do not go ANA. So far, knock-on-wood. Some folks do carry the epi pen. I don't have to.

Wow you have a lot going on! I hope you are doing well managing these problems. I feel I manage my allergies better now that I know what I was reacting to.
