8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?
Milk Allergy: Allergies are due to a reaction to protein. Corn is a starch or carbohydrate. If you infant reacted to nutra, it would not be from reacting to the starch. I assume the reaction was either eczema or bloody stools, not gas or a change in stools. If the reaction was not eczema or bloody stools, your baby may be intolerant and not allergic. ...Read more
Haven't heard of any: Haven't heard of any studies comparing different types of white rice. A study would have to have 2 groups of people eating the same foods and the same amounts of foods, except that one group would eat sona masuri and the other group would eat basmati. As one can imagine, such a research study would be pretty hard to do. In general, white rice is not as healthy as brown rice. ...Read more

I tested positive to turkey, potato, sweet potato, rice, rye, pecans, crab, shrimp. Allergist eliminated wheat and corn to feel better. Correlation?
Test v reaction: The presence of a positive skin test to food only means sensitization and not necessarily causing an allergic reaction to that food. The larger the size of the ST,, the more likely a reaction would occur. If you feel better with elimination of corn and wheat, you should avoid them. A double-blind food challenge may be in order. Were ST to wheat & corn strongly positive? ...Read more
Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?
Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?
What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Food allergy: If you ate the squash and had an immediate reaction (minutes to 2hrs) that included hives, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, throat tightness, vomiting or passing out then I would be concerned for a food allergy reaction.
