Hi all,
Finally got around to posting my top food allergens. There are more, but these are the ones the doc said I need to avoid all together. The ones that will send me to the hospital are shellfish (non-food: penicillan) and wine is moving it's way to that point (non-food: latex makes me swell and have breathing difficulties too). Flaxseed is a biggie I forgot. Here is the list:

-Wheat, corn, oats, barley¸ rye and hops
-Crab, lobster, shrimp, oysters, and salmon
-Beef, chicken, pork and turkey
-Milk, egg whites and yolks
-Sesame, brewer’s yeast, cocoa, karaya gum, cottonseed, flaxseed and soy bean
-All molds (which is why I have reactions to wine and penicillin, as well as question if the antibiotics are the reason I am allergic to meats and dairy with all the drugs they pump in those poor animals)

I wish I could say I have addressed all of them, but I have sadly not done so. Have pretty much eliminated dairy and eat wheat and meats in moderation. The best thing I did was cutting down on dairy. Major intestinal issues are far better and feel less puffy. I was to the point before starting to change my diet that I was popping a benadryl daily. Not anymore. Soy is next on the list. I LOVE soy and have only been able to cut out my veggie protein shake. Like everyone else has said, this is very frustrating, a bit depressing and sometimes just plain scary.

We can do it. Sometimes it means baby steps:)
