    Rare yeast allergy

    For the past few years I've noticed that I would have an allergic reaction to certain beers, wines and ciders i.e. itchy throat and ears, tightness or chest discomfort and fatigue if it was bad enough.

    However certain brands of beer, wine and cider were absolutely fine and I had zero reactions. I eventually narrowed it down to yeast as it was the only common denominator.

    So for the beers I could drink, I started asking brew masters what yeast they used. A common theme was that they used older strains of yeast and also lagers seemed fine.

    One more strange reaction was sorghum. My wife is gluten free and when she gave me a bite of her carrot cake one day, I had one of the worst reactions! The only ingredient that I didn't normally encounter was the sorghum.

    Lo and behold I just found this study on the NIH website:

    It describes me down to a T, even the sorghum reaction. One huge difference is that I am of european descent and not chinese.

    Anyone else dealing with this?
