I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?

I am  allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut.  Could I have a protein intolerance?

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read more

Would pollen (birch) immunotherapy help resolve OAS?  (Apple, hazelnut, peanuts ara h8, etc)

What types of food can I eat if i'm allergic to all tree nuts  soy bean soy whey sun flower  and strawberries and fresh fruits?

Ate spaghetti squash (w/olive oil, goat cheese, salt, pepper). Nose swollen inside, sinusdrainage, asthma. Allergic to squash?!? Other food allergies.

Food allergy: If you ate the squash and had an immediate reaction (minutes to 2hrs) that included hives, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, throat tightness, vomiting or passing out then I would be concerned for a food allergy reaction.
