Just found out I am mildly allergic to shellfish from an allergy test. I have eaten shellfish all my life with no problem. Can the allergy get worse?
Well,....: It's always possible, BUT I teach medical students that "we treat patients, not numbers." That is to say, if you have eaten shell fish all your life without any issues, I would not change your eating habits because of an allergy test. My brother was once tested for allergies and he came up positive for grass and was a landscaper at the time (and he did not quit his job)! Be well, best wishes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

You should have no problem taking thyroid hormone if you need it. ...Read more
