I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

If I am allergic to celery am I allergic to fennel?

If I am allergic to celery am I allergic to fennel?

Likely: Since the most common issue with celery is related to pollen-food allergy syndrome, I will assume it is the case here. Allergic sensitivity is cross-reactive between Birch family of pollens (or mugwart) and foods including celery and fennel (and others in apiaciae family like carrot). Patients may not have symptoms with all foods in the family, but would be expected to have symptoms with 2-3. ...Read more

What can I do if i had an allergic to wheat and was told i'm allergic to sunflowers?

What can I do if i had an allergic to wheat and was told i'm allergic to sunflowers?

Food Allergies: Would need more details. If you have always eaten sunflower seeds with no issue and a blood test showed a sensitivity then the blood test is wrong, this is called a false positive test. Food allergy diagnosis relies on both clinical history and testing. If there is not a concerning clinical history then you can ignore the testing. Same goes for wheat. Talk to allergist if you haven't already. ...Read more
