Im Allergic To Shellfish Can I Eat Octopus
I am allergic to seafood but i can eat tunafish and breaded shrimp can I eat lobster and crab without having an allergic reaction?
Difficult to answer: Seafood includes shellfish and fish. Shellfish includes mollusks and crustaceans. You describe being able to eat a sea dwelling fish (tuna) and a crustacean (shrimp). Therefore you are not allergic to seafood. Lobsters and crabs are crustaceans and share the same allergy inducing protein tropomyosin. It does not appear you are allergic to that or you would have had trouble with shrimp. ...Read more
Maybe: Shellfish includes clams, oysters, lobster, crabs, shrimp, mussels, etc.... Some people are allergic to all shellfish. Some are allergic to only specific types and tolerate other shellfish. See an allergist for testing. Don't be foolish and take a chance. ...Read more
Maybe: About 10-15% of people who are allergic to shellfish are also allergic to mollusks (including squid). An allergist can help you find out.

May be: Calamari are one kind of squid, which are distant relatives of molluscs. They contain a protein, tropomyosin, that cross reacts with that of shrimp, crabs etc., sometimes also with that of dust mites and cockroaches. If you are not very allergic to shellfish, you may be able to tolerate calamari. If you are, either avoid them or see an allergist to be tested and find out if you can risk it. ...Read more
Finned fish: Most people who are shellfish allergic can eat finned fish (salmon, tuna, cod, etc) without a problem. You may be able to eat mollusks (clams, squid, octopus). For both, you should check with your doctor, as some testing can be helpful to make these recommendations specifically for you, and specific recommendations vary depending on how severe your reaction was and your test results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am allergic to iodine, shrimp, lobster, seaweed, but can eat crab, fish clams, octopus. I would like to start taking fish oil for depression. Can I?
Allergy testing: It is unusual to be able to eat crabs and seafood with such a strong history of iodine and multiple seafood allergies. I would not recommend fish oil at this time. If you are depressed, there are medications and counseling that can help - see your Doctor. If you have not been evaluated for specific food allergies, seeing an Allergist for testing is advised. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Yes: Any food can potentially trigger an allergic reaction. Severe apple allergies are not common, but many people with birch tree allergy have "pollen food allergy syndrome" where eating a fresh apple leads to itchy mouth and throat. This is due to cross reactive allergen. An allergist can assess for food allergies including apple. ...Read more
Allergy or other: You would have to specify what you mean by yeast allergy. Are you experiencing and intolerance or some adverse reaction due to yeast in your body? Are you truly allergic with immediate or anaphylactic type reactions perhaps verified by testing? The latter is quite rare and I have never seen it. Please clarify. ...Read more

Yes.: That is, as long as you are not allergic to fish as well. Imitation crab is made from pollack and kamaboko, types of white fish. There are two kinds of shellfish - crustaceans (shrimp, lobster, crab) & mollusks (clams, mussels, oysters, calamari). Are you allergic to both kinds? If not, there may be some shellfish in your future. See an allergist for help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
