Perennial Rye Grass
Hi I was wondering if I may have an allergy to rye (i'm allergic to rye grass) or gluten (not allergic to wheat or corn though) or dextrin or food coloring dyes that are artificial , since I was eating cheez-its and starburst last night and noticed my thr
Beware that allergy: is simply a label for behavioral response. Pretense is that someone else (Doc, etc.) really understands what is happening when actually just repeating the client's complaints/descriptions of behavior(s), using different words/diagnostic-labels, while promoting theories to justify low-level theories aimed at justifying what is being promoted/sold. Best don't miss bigger issues & internal controls. ...Read more
Hi, if a person has a perennial ryegrass allergy, are they also allergic to rye breads and other rye items?
I gave my 4 year old pepto for diahrea, the bottle said it's ok for his age but I read it causes rye syndrome? He's had two doses should I be worried?
There is no medicine to be given for diarrhea as long as you keep pushing fluids and keep her well hydrated.
No pepto or any medicine recommended. ...Read more

Depends: At your age, if no symptoms do nothing. You have what we call anisometropia, different refractions in eyes. Your right eye is near-sighted while left is far-sighted. Brain has one accommodation center. When your left eye focuses for distance, it makes your right eye -1.25 nearsighted. And when reading most probably you read with your right eye more often. If you have symptoms get glasses. ...Read more
Type of reactions?: The term food allergy gets overused on a regular basis. For an allergy or intolerance the treatment is always the same. Avoidance. The best example of allergy vs intolerance is milk. Milk has protein (casein and whey),sugar (lactose) and fat. Only protein (with a few exceptions) can induce a true IgE mediated response. Stomach cramping, bloating etc can occur with intolerance to the other two. ...Read more

My 3yr old daughter just got blood results back...She is allergic to cats, dogs, fungus, weeds, gluten, and rye. What can she eat?
Well... Not so fast.: Allergy testing is not tremendously accurate, especially in kids. More and more studies and reviews are demonstrating this issue in kids. http://www.medscape.org/viewarticle/756631 this is a recent publication that discusses this issue. Alelrgy tests really only help confirm allergies. So if you had strong symptoms to exact foods and test positive its helpful. Random positives likely arent... ...Read more

I have a barley allergy confirmed with a blood test. Was tested for wheat, rye. Is it common for barley allergy to "standalone" or similar substances?
Barley allergy: Yes barley allergy alone is actually very common. I usually see 6-7 people a year with this allergy. Usually it causes itching alone (which can lead to eczema), recurrent urticaria ( hives) and/or intestinal cramping with diarrhea. The hard part with avoidance is that many brands of flour are a wheat/ barley mix. So this calls for a lot of label reading and avoidance of things made with flour ...Read more
Im allergic to milk, eggs, wheat,rye and soybeans, am i supposed to cut out gluten,and what else is there to eat if i cut out the rest, i take benadry?

Skin test showed sensitivity to Buckwheat and Rye. When I eliminate most carbs, my reflux seems to improve. Could it mean I have gluten intolerance?
Why can't my allergist figure out why I suddenly got hives (1 yr ago now). I think its something in bread but he says no. He tested barley/wheat/rye.
Idiopathic: Sometimes no one can figure out why a person has hives. That is called idiopathic because "doctors are too idiotic to figure out the pathology", I've been told. In other words, sometimes it will be unexplained. Hives can be caused by viruses such as influenza and hepatitis, for example, not just allergies. Hopefully, they won't be chronic. ...Read more
I tested positive to turkey, potato, sweet potato, rice, rye, pecans, crab, shrimp. Allergist eliminated wheat and corn to feel better. Correlation?
Test v reaction: The presence of a positive skin test to food only means sensitization and not necessarily causing an allergic reaction to that food. The larger the size of the ST,, the more likely a reaction would occur. If you feel better with elimination of corn and wheat, you should avoid them. A double-blind food challenge may be in order. Were ST to wheat & corn strongly positive? ...Read more
How do I get rid of uneven skin tone I tried every thing I'm African american the skin around my ryes and my nose are the lightest part of my face?
I am not sure there:
a way. If this is a wide change in skin tone then one can use covermark which is a type of makeup specifically for this kind of problem. See a derm doc for better ideas and to make sure there is not something else going on.
One must think of a condition called vitiligo. ...Read more
I had a skin allergy test 4 years ago and tested +2 for oats, wheat, soy, barley, rye an hoops. Based on this could i be a celiac or sensitive?
Wouldn't bet on it: Sensitivity is a simple realization the suspect food and you don't get along. Skin or blood tests can suggest that but your personal experience is the best gauge. Celiac is not a true allergy but a quirk in the immune system where it makes antibodies to gluten as if it was a germ & these attack your gut tissue. There are specific tests for that. CD is a real entity & you should have proper testing ...Read more
Im allergic to eggs, milk, soybeans, wheat and rye, do i have a gluten problem? i do have joint pains, do i need to stay away from wheat or rye?
Not necessarily: If you think you might have celiac sprue, you should have the blood tests drawn to check for it; if those are negative, you likely do not have celiac; one can still have intolerance to gluten or other compounds in wheat, etc. (look up FODMAP); the latter would not cause problems outside of your GI system; ...Read more
Could I be wheat intolerance? Can eat reduced wheat rye bread but get stomach pain and gas when I eat white or whole wheat products?
Possibly yes.: The symptoms you describe sound like you could be sensitive to gluten, a protein that's found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. I can't explain why you can tolerate wheat rye but not white or whole wheat products. They all contain gluten. Your symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. Meanwhile eat only gluten free grains (corn and rice) and tell your doctor if that reduces your symptoms. ...Read more
Im allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, soy beans and rye, my throat would swell up but if i take benadryl i can eat what i want, wondered if anyone else ca?
Do tryptase level.: Multiple food allergies are difficult to deal with. I usually see 6-7 people a year with this allergy. Some have mast cell conditions that can explain the brown spots. Swelling and/or intestinal cramping with diarrhea is seen. If true food allergy,avoidance to that many is hard. Wheat/ rye free foods may have egg or milk. This calls for a lot of label reading. Consider gluten free & vegan foods. ...Read more
Not exactly: Grass pollen allergy is quite common. While there is no "cure" for pollen allergies, allergy injections using grass pollen extract can decrease symptoms about 80+% in about 80% of people such that less medication is required. Other treatments than can lessen symptoms include antihistamines and topical nasal steroid sprays. Soon there will be a tablet for desensitization rather than injections. ...Read more
