Is it safe to eat protein bars if I have peanut and soy allergies?

Today I got 3 shots for my allergies is it possible that I can eat anything with soy or peanut or I have to wait? know the name of the injection

No: Your shots are likely for airborne allergens and not for foods. Even then, it will take months to reduce your allergic symptoms. Allergy shots or sublingual drops for food allergens remain experimental at this time and results thus far have been inconsistent. If you are allergic to peanut or soy, don't eat them unless OKd by your allergist. ...Read more

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

Continue avoid milk: It takes time, so a continued milk an dairy elimination diet is in order. It would be important to read labels to make sure there is no "hidden" dairy in other foods. Also, there may be another food allergy besides milk. An allergist can assist in the search for the cause. ...Read more

Do food allergies cause long term damage? Newly diagnosed: tomato, barley, tree nuts, coconut. Mild positives: wheat, soy, peanut, egg. How to manage?

No: Food allergies do not cause long term damage, but it is unlikely that you developed true food allergies at your age. And that is quite the laundry list of positive tests. It sounds to me like someone who really doesn't understand food allergies put on a bunch of skin tests or, more likely, ordered a boatload of blood tests. See a board certified allergist to get a more accurate interpretation ...Read more

My nearly 16 yr old son eat a protein bar after exercise it says protein 10 grams i read ingredients they were Isolated Soy&Wey protein is that bad?

Should be fine...: A single protein bar after exercise per day with the proteins you are mentioning should be fine. A lot of protein bars have chemicals and other ingredients that aren't great if you are trying to eat "clean"; however, the added protein after a workout is actually a good way to increase the benefits of the strength training. ...Read more
