Food allergies/Intolerances

Postby LogDog » Thu Jan 22, 2004 4:06 am

So, is there any food any of y'all can't eat? Any allergies?

I'm lactose intolerant.

Also, I'm fructose, sucrose and solrbitol intolerant.

Basically, all I can eat is meat and veggies. Yay ^_^

Oh yea, I also have IBS.

What about you?


I like this idea. I agree with everything he said.

I'm allergic to hazelnuts. It makes me loose feeling in my left arm, loss of side vision and my tongue swells. Pleasant ne? It's sent me to the hospital three times. ^_^

I'm allergic to most seafood, primarily shellfish like shrimp, crawfish, crab, lobster, and all of those. I'm even allergic to Catfish as well.

But I can eat tuna! ^___^

i'm allergic to gluten (any form of wheat, bran barley, rye and sometimes oats) which means no bread, pasta, flour, cake, cookies, etc...
i'm also allergic to cow's milk (casien intolerant) which means i can't have milk, cheese, cream, hot chocolate or any yummies like that.....
on top of that, i'm sensitive to too much sugar...
so what do i eat?
well, mainly chocolate, fruits, chocolate, veggies, chocolate, rice, chocolate and more chocolate.. :)
log dog, how has it been finding food to eat? i remember when you were first trying to make the adjustment to the new eating style and it was difficult. let me know if you need any suggestions for good dessert subsitutes... (my fiance's allergic to the same sugar substitutes you are...gives him migraines>)

While not really an allergy I can't eat fish. Can eat seafood such as prawns, Squid, crab etc, but fish is right out. It makes its way back to where it came from pretty quickly when I try to eat it. I'm also hard pressed to be in the vicinity of Fish due to the smell.

I'm thinking it's a mental thing - my earliest memories is when I was in Hospital when I was four - I think it had something to do with me eating a bad fish.

I am lactose intolerant as well. when I was a kid, I drank some milk and I had a bad nose blood. It has been always act up like that whenever I drink milk but until recent, I found a store that sell raw milk so I drank and I can tolerance it... so I am happy to able to drink milk (but only raw) from now.

Even though I am not allergy to sea foods but I seem could not eat it without feeling my stomach gurgle.. smell has been always bother me.. I love to eat few fishs such as salmon, orange roughy, tuna, etc but other than these, I could not eat..

Chocolate often give me huge headaches whenever I eat.. other than these three.. I seem okay with many foods but I am heavy diet on meat/veggies though. Since I am an athlete, I require to eat lots of meats anyway.

Only medical allergies, penicillan and all that.

When it comes to food, I have more of personal problems. I am not a vegetarian, but I cannot eat much red meat without becoming very sick. Well done to the ultimate is the only way I can stomach steak of any sort (I once had to eat it for nearly a month straight, no kidding there, and since then... blah).

Salt is a delicate matter, I tend to require a lot of it, or I get really bad headaches. I've been slacking on that lately, which is why I've been having such bad headaches, I figure.

The family has a long history of diabetes, so I worry about that manifesting. Sugar and chocolate are a huge part of my life, I love it. That, and controlling any sort of intake is near impossible for me.

I'm not allergic to any foods but since my brother is allergic to almost everything under the sun I got upset and demanded that I was allergic to something when I was little so my mom told me I was allergic to Lima Beans to shut me up.
I am allergic to baby wipes, I wouldn't reccomend eating them though.
