Good morning! looks like I have joined the 1% of people ( cant believe that's the number) who have a sulfate sensitivity. I'm looking forward to reading through the threads.. This is going to be interesting.

I was diagnosed Friday so just getting on board luckily I had a pretty "Clean "diet with no preservatives.

I was taking a lot of supplements. I have stopped taking about half of them, until I can figure out what's ok and what's not..

Oh I do have one question Loose organic tea? yes or no?

Can't wait to learn more, Thanks!

Sulfites, not sulfates. Big difference.

Yes, some tea can be sulfited. You have to read the labels. Most common brands are OK, but not all!

Some vitamins contain sulfites. Biotin for one.

The lists on the internet are helpful, but some go too far. It depends on your level of tolerance. You can calculate yours from the information Click on the free book and then "knowing the demons."

If you get hives and throat closing you may have the "true" allergy, not the "sensitivity." My allergist calls all the reactions allergies. You are lucky to find a doctor who even knows about sulfites.

Your not alone, Alcie gave you good advise.
That 1% is just a number and there are more people with this allergy than you realize. It's more common and its very important for you to read all food labels and also check out menus at your favorite places to eat out at and try to stay away from the foods your allergic to when you go out.
I'm allergic to the lasagna at Olive Garden, so when we go there we know what I can't eat...I'm very allergic because I need to use my rescue inhaler within 15 minutes so I can breathe...
Do what Alcie mentioned first, try foods and see which ones your more sensitive to and find better solutions...make sure you pharmacy knows about this allergy...
* So many dx's I could write a book* "It would be nice if we could use the edit button in real life"...
