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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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
