I don't have any known food allergies, but it occurred to me that I've never had buckwheat before. What would I monitor as a sign of allergy?
Not to Worry: Just because you haven't tried buckwheat before doesn't put you at an increased risk for allergy. Rare to develop a food allergy later in life, shellfish/peanut more common. Food allergies are typically immediate, minutes to a half hour after ingestion of concerning food with symptoms ranging anywhere from hives, wheezing, itching, shortness of breath, wheezing, vomiting, or fainting. ...Read more

Bagels & lox :) But:: I can't help notice today is Yom Kippur, when many Jews will be fasting. It's healthy to fast now and then, though unhealthy to not drink, so when I fast I drink some water- makes it easier. While bagels, lox, cream cheese and kugel are common afterwards, I advise lighter fare like salads, soups, steamed veggies, fruit and nuts, though 24 hours is a short enough fast that any healthy food is OK. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
