Hi! I am just wondering if anyone here has specific food allergies? I know there are lots of us with food sensitivities, but didn't know if anyone has been formally "checked" by a specialist?

Thanks!

Most allergy docs are going to check you only for true allergies - the kind that produce almost instant and dramatic effects. There is an ELISA test for delayed reactions, but it's expensive and I found it difficult to find a doc who'd do it. I know from my own experiences, tracking foods and symptoms and keeping a food journal, that I have alot of sensitivities. Major offenders are wheat, dairy, corn, soy, tree nuts, peanuts and eggs.

You may want to check out Elson Haas' False Fat Diet. The title is misleading... it's really about food allergies and sensitivities.

You may also want to look into pulse testing as a way to determine your allergies/sensitivites without medical help.

I had the ELISA test done and peanuts came up positive for me and I had eaten peanut products all of my life with no issues, now I cant have it, even the aroma of P butter makes my throat itchy. As for other foods they all came up neg but I have oral allergy syndrome so there are many fruits and veggies I have anaphalactic reactions if I eat them. The immune system is out of whack (had that going for me anyway) and thinks you are ingesting pollen and not fruits or veggies
