Can All Allergies Cause Anaphylaxis
Yes.: Anaphylaxis is often an extreme allergic reaction, but may not always be readily attributable to an allergy. Some people, for example, may experience anaphylaxis from exercise under certain circumstances.

Does a prolonged elimination diet (eg AIP) cause food allergies or anaphylaxis to foods that you eliminated?
Not usually: If you eliminated a food you are allergic to even for a long time, the reaction is unpredictable on reintroduction but it is unlikely that this action alone eliminates the food allergy.

Can animal allergies cause anaphilaxis? I'm allergic to most animals but mostly cats, dogs and horses. It's very very hard to breath if i'm near them.

Anaphylaxis is incredibly rare to pet dander. ...Read more

It is rare to form severe allergy to multiple triggers that could result in anaphylaxis and so a thorough investigation into alternative possibilities is critical for peace of mind. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
With acute exposure: Someone allergic to cats who lives with cats will not likely have acute anaphylaxis but may have symptoms of chronic allergic rhinitis and asthma. When a patient with severe cat allergy who doesn't live with cats enters a home with a cat acute symptoms may occur. This may include throat closure (laryngospasm). I have never heard of this resulting in death. But it's not fun. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
