Can you explain me my allergie test from blood. Is says that I have antibodies for milk, sugar, flour, eggs. But i eat that every day without symptoms?

Can you explain me my allergie test from blood. Is says that I have antibodies for milk, sugar, flour, eggs. But i eat that every day without symptoms?

Depends: If the antibody type is igg, it merely means that you have been exposed to that food and nothing else. If the antibody type is ige and the level is high, your chance of being allergic to that food is increased but not certain. I'd cast doubt on the validity on any test for sugar which is not an allergen. This alone makes me question the quality of the lab. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I have a minor peanut allergy, will defatted peanut flour give i a reaction?

Can you tell me if I have a minor peanut allergy, will defatted peanut flour give i a reaction?

Likely: I agree with Dr Grieve's comments but do want to note that it is the protein part of peanuts one is allergic to and thus " de-fatting" it does not make it less allergenic. In fact there is evidence that roasting peanuts to extract the fat actually makes the peanuts more allergenic. I totally agree that you should consult an allergist. ...Read more

Can you tell me if you have a minor peanut allergy, will defatted peanut flour give you a reaction?

Possibly: Depends on what you mean by minor allergy. Best to avoid the flour. Make sure you have an EPipen (epinephrine). There is component allergy testing available now (Blood test, Thermofisher). That can helps distinguish the severity of your allergy and the possibility of reacting to different components of the peanut protein. ...Read more

Wheat flour if inhaled gives me asthma, if i eat it i get seizures and sometimes go unconscious in 30 mins, itchy skin if i touch.Allergy or intolerance?

Allergy most likely: Although testing via a blood test (rast-type) is needed to confirm the allergy, your symptoms are most likely due to an ige antibody to wheat. Skin testing would be a bit risky. Strict avoidance and access to self-injected Epinephrine (epi-pen or auviq) would be required if allergy is confirmed. ...Read more
