  1. Crazy Allergies

    Thank you so much for your response. I've read about the link with eggplant and peppers and potatoes, but I think I'm sort of in denial and need to snap out of it. My doctor wants me to do a challenge on EVERY single food to "prove" that I really have the allergy, which I think is sort of crazy/super expensive. I'm trying to find another one soon.
  2. Hi! I have a rant/question. Do you guys avoid ALL food you're allergic to no matter how strong the allergy? I really need to do the IGG food test, where they check some hundred or so foods, but as of now, in addition to Celiac I'm definitely allergic to the list below. (Confirmed with blood work and prick test.) Chicken Wheat Oats Strawberries Apples Tomatoes Shellfish Peanuts Treenuts Sesame Seeds And I also seem to be intolerant to dairy and lately I'm having big problems when I eat quinoa and rice- I don't seem to digest it, and get really bad stomach aches after eating it. On top of all that, I've gone vegan- I don't really like the taste of meat and since I'm not having dairy I figured why not try it out. I'm definitely feeling WAY better dairy-free and vegan, but I still have some lingering stomach issues and hives and such that I can't quite pinpoint. I'm definitely not strict about some of those allergies, particularly tomato, but maybe I should be? Most of them are in the 'strong' category. With tomato I've read you can eat it cooked? Anyone else in a similar boat? I'm wondering if maybe I should go grain-free too, but my diet is already so restricted that I'm not sure that makes sense... Thank you!!!
