Hi I'm new to this site. I am waiting on an appointment to diagnose whether I have a sulfite intolerance. I have had symptoms and generally felt unwell for around six years. Iv had any other tests over the years and nothings ever come back. I recently started keeping a food diary after I started getting facial swelling, hives and other symptoms. A friend of myn suggested sulfite to me and everything has kinda fallen into place. This is such a frustrating thing! I have to wait four months to be seen. I can't go on feeling like this for much longer. How do you go about a detox ? Amy :-)

Hi Amy.

As Razzle said, starting your own thread is a good idea.

Razzle is also the expert on sulfite allergy. I'm only experienced in the sensitivity. So ask for Razzle.

Your symptoms may be from salicylates instead of sulfite. Have you been tested for this? I don't know wht tests, if any, there are.

Detox is simply avoiding foods containing the suspected allergen. Forget the gut cleaning remedies. Simple avoidance will clean you out soon enough. Diarrhea will just make you feel worse.

Thank you for your reply il start a new thread I'm sure it's sulfites as I have done so much research. I have bad allergic reactions and panic attacks with all wine and champagne, and have noticed I am particularly sensitive with food such as egg, garlic and onions. I was also taking raspberry ketone tablets before I knew about sulfite and going into shock on them. I looked recently and they are full of sulfite. I feel brain confused and 'zoned out' everyday ! Hopefully my organic no sulfite diet will start helping soon as it's early days

Should I be concerned about hidden sulfites in Natures Made Potassium Gluconate? Ingredients are Cellulose Gel, Stearic Acid, Magnesium Stearate, Silicon Dioxide, Croscarmellose Sodium.

Hi Sulfright

As for the post I just read you should be careful that diet is FULL OF SULPHITES. I have been listening to the doctors and doing my own research. As for your head aches it could be cause by diet drinks if you drink any. It maybe the aspartame in it. My husband struggle with it for a long time and had ct scans ect.. to find out through a friend that it was the aspartame. This I know.
