  1. thanks for all your insight Stephanie. yes, she did test for a lot of things at once. no blood testing was ever done. I am going to look into this. happy new year!
  2. I saw a board certified allergist who is well respected where I live. she did give me an epi pen but not for the soy allergy.
  3. very interesting read Stephanie, thanks. all I knew was what the allergist told me. she did skin tests and based on the reactions I was told I was allergic to dairy and soy 3 years ago. I went to see her because I felt nauseous at times and didn't know why. I felt great after giving up the dairy...
  4. Hi Stephanie, thanks for your reply. I don't have an epi pen for this, I had testing done at an allergist office, and was told I am allergic to soy, among other things. the symptoms I used to get when eating soy was intestinal upset, not life threatening, just annoying. I also was unaware in...
  5. I wrote to Hellmanns about their Canola mayonnaise. I am allergic to soy and have been using this product as it had been stated on the label as no soy in the ingredients. I wasn't happy when I went to get some, checked the label and saw soy as a flavoring in the ingredients. what floored me is what...
  6. I bought these to give my grandkids for breakfast when they sleep over. breakfast was always a problem, so it's great to be able to get them. would I eat them? nope, not worth it to me
  7. I eat out with my family often, I pack my meal, take it in a purse-like looking little cooler bag. when orders are being taken i just tell the waiter that I am not ordering. they don't care. when the food comes I whip out my meal and eat. ( I bring my own plate, etc.) they don't care. I ask no...
  8. I have alleriges, have an epi pen. up till this new thing with my throat closing with melon, the only symptoms I had were GI. but with this new one, I'm glad I have the epi pen good point
  9. I have additional allergies, so eliminating gluten is not related to these. I am allergic to dairy, soy, chocolate, tea (?? whoever heard of this?), now realizing lately that my throat closes with honeydew melon and cranberries. the list seems to grow with time. so one thing has nothing to do with...
  10. so sad about that little boy.. this will be my 3rd holiday season, and I really don't get sad, I never did. I was so happy when I realized staying away from offending foods kept me feeling good.
  11. sorry you've been through all this. are you still planning to work in the bakery? I can't be around flour, I'm very sensitive. good luck!
  12. i am super sensitive to gluten, and allergic to dairy and soy. I look back at what my mom used to eat, I lost her 7 years ago at 94 years old, and realized she only ate plain things, wouldn't eat bread, and was very sensitive to food in general. there was never any sense of diagnosing anything, and...
  13. I feel for you as well. I basically live my life only eating food I made myself, unless it's a 100% gluten-free restaurant. this is going on 3 yrs for me. it doesn't get easy per se, but definitely easier to incorporate into my life and social situations. bring your own food, etc. totally doable...
  14. I have been reading through all these super sensitive posts, and I definitely live this life also. I am wondering if anyone has found any way to help them have less reaction when they are out and about. Has anything helped at all? I was looking into seeing a Naturopathic Doctor, but don't want to...
