shellfish allergy, but I also have a gluten and dairy intolerance, peanut allergy, and I should also be avoiding other nuts, citrus, mint, strawberries, chocolate, pork, and all salt-water fish.
Hi, I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy, peanut allergy, hazelnut allergy, grape allergy, egg allergy, shellfish allergy, a dairy intolerance and a gluten intolerance and oral allergy syndrome. I never had the appropriate tests done before I went gluten free for celiac disease, so I will never know. And now I wouldn't be able to eat it again to get the tests done! It is hard at the beginning, but it gets so easy to eat with all these allergies. I have now reintroduced dairy, I can now eat cheese and yogurt (but still can't tolerate milk and icecream)... I can eat eggs in things, but not on their own.
If I were you, I would and did go cold turkey on everything your allergist was concerned with. There is a lot of food out there, it is just about learning new ways to eat. You can no longer eat the convenient (poison) foods. You have to make everything from scratch. I eat a lot of beans, meat, and fruits and veges...Luckily I can eat almonds as well. It's amazing what you will learn about preparing food. I wish you luck, hopefully your new journey will teach you as much as it has taught me!!
