Possibly: Though allergies are a common trigger for asthma attacks, food allergies are not as commonly linked as inhaled allergens like animal dander or pollution. Often, people with allergies are allergic to more than 1 allergen. Perhaps this is you case and investigating other possibilities with your physician cam be helpful. Good luck.
