Tips to Make Life Easier with Food Allergies

Posted on December 27, 2018

"Really struggling as I'm lactose intolerant along with wheat, nut, and citrus allergies. I had a bad reaction the other day so living like this has made me more cautious. Any advice would be appreciated." - A member on MyFoodAllergyTeam

On MyFoodAllergyTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with food allergies, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Tips to make life easier are one of the top topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads with tips:

Where do you shop for safe food?I live a very small community without many food shopping options. Do any of you know of a allergy friendly online food store?

Can someone please suggest a website to order medical ID to tell people about my allergies?

Here are some conversations about tips :

"I'm finding I need to change the type of OTC medications more frequently, generally every other month, but with so many to choose from it's been easier."

"How to make a food diary"

"I find recipes on YouTube so that I can adapt them for myself."

Can you relate?
