Allergies board


[QUOTE=MAD MAZ;3364759]Hi glynis I am 43 years old and I also have Autoimmune thyroid Disease and in May of this year got told I have lots of allergies to trees, grass, cats, dogs, (PEANUTS AND ALL NUTS) fish, wheat, egg!!

I just don't know what to eat, I feel so alone I also have sinus problems, I think once you have Autoimmune Disease's going on its not good with our health... Ha I gave up smoking three years ago and that when it all started to go down hill... Have you had any food tests...Mandy
I'm 44. I just had all sorts of tests run on Christmas Eve. They had to take SIXTEEN vials for all the tests my allergist is running. It's going to take a couple of weeks for the results to come back. Until then, like you, I find myself afraid to eat anything. I know I'm sensitive to histamines in certain foods, so I found stuff about a low histamine diet and have been trying to follow that. Do you find yourself freaking yourself out about foods?

I've had reactions from nuts, fish and wheat, so those are the things that I absolutely have to avoid, even without the tests.

The disgusting things about this is I do everything possible to live a healthy lifestyle. I eat cleanly, I workout 60 - 90 minutes a day, six days a week. I lift weights, run, do yoga. I was on Armour Thyroid, but my doctors wanted me to switch to Synthroid with Cytomel because of the chance of reacting to something in the dessicated pig/cow thyroids. It's insane!

Did they do any other tests on you besides the food allergy RAST? Was it blood or skin?
