Hi. I had food allergy tests done. I am allergic to bananas, shellfish, onions, and kiwi.
I also am anemic and take iron supplements for that.
I have tons of other environmental and medication allergies as well.
To me, I assume since we may have overactive immune systems, that allergies are part of the immune response, and it's gotta be tied in there somewhere.
Finally Dx- April 13 2007 (age 26) ilio-crohn's-colitis. Surgeries:appendectomy, cholecystectomy, tonsillectomy, pinidal cyst removed,emergency abdominal surgery for hemorrhaging ovary from burst ovarian cyst, LEEPcervix, emergency abdominal surgery for grapefruit sized ovarian cyst removal, D and C of uterus, lumpectomy of breast.

Many allergies. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, anxiety, depression, ITP
