Allergic to pineapple, bromelain too?

hey so i had an ELISA test done, and found i was allergic to several classic things, like gluten, eggs, dairy, etc., but was surprised to see pineapple as one which i was EXTREMELY allergic to. the thing is i take Bromelain as a digestive enzyme and/or anti inflammatory sometimes and bromelain is from the pineapple. so is the Bromelain the same as the pineapple? should i avoid it as well? not sure what to do.

any help would be great

Yes, you should avoid it. I'm allergic to ragweed and so can't take echinacia (sp).
