How does one start an elimination diet for food allergies... I was considering rice fruit and vegetables for 1 week?

Best to get checked: New development of food allergies at age 64 is unusual, so your desire to restrict diet, while based on good science, may be an incorrect approach for you. Effective diet exclusions pick one food group to drop (like lactose, gluten), assess response, then move on to another food group. I suggest first you discuss your symptoms & concerns with your doctor & pursue appropriate evaluation instead. ...Read more

Does a +2 on a skin allergy test mean that you should not eat anything with that item in it?  The foods are milk, yeast, potato and rice

Whoa: If someone has told you to shun everything to which you have supposed skin sensitivity, please get a second opinion. I'm not an allergist, but food allergies are best determined by your clinical response to a particular food. Skin tests are adjuncts at best & often misleading. Nowadays, people are disrupting their lives and those of others by overly-restrictive diets from weak evidence like this. ...Read more

I've seb der scalp but no allergy found When I eat anything diary, legumes,some vegies like spinach, rice or anything contain sugar I lose many hair???

Seb der: Unfortunately there is no test to find out if food is triggering your hair loss or the seborrhea. To my knowledge there is no known connection. About the best you can do is to log a food diary in order to verify an association by trial and error. Alternative you could explore other causes of hair loss. ...Read more

Allergy test came back highly allergic to all dairy, all wheat, gluten, all yeast, rice, eggs, some fish. Could anything else be wrong? Why so much?

It is unlikely for an adult to be allergic to all these items and i stronly doubt the accuracy of these results. I suggest you consult a board certified allergist to discuss your symptoms and determine the indication for specific testing. ...Read more

8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?

Milk Allergy: Allergies are due to a reaction to protein. Corn is a starch or carbohydrate. If you infant reacted to nutra, it would not be from reacting to the starch. I assume the reaction was either eczema or bloody stools, not gas or a change in stools. If the reaction was not eczema or bloody stools, your baby may be intolerant and not allergic. ...Read more

A : A milk protein allergy can present at this age if you have switched to whole milk, and have not been using a milk based formuls in infancy. Depending on what kind of formula you were using throughout infancy, an allergy typically would have been a problem earlier. "Toddler" formulas are more costly and you hate to restrict her diet if she does not have a true allergy. I suggest you talk more with your pediatrician or have allergy testing performed to confirm a true allergy. ...Read more

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens.
