Yesterday afternoon I finally received my food allergy test results. I’ve been waiting for 7 weeks and surviving on a boring restricted diet.
For the past few years I’ve been getting an itchy rash on my chest and it was progressively getting worse which is why I got tested.
I did blood tests arranged through my nutritionist - Ige, Iga/IgG which cover around 95 different foods. It costs around $400 for the tests alone but it’s a small price to pay considering its my health. 🥚🍳. It turns out that I have an extremely high reaction to chicken egg white/yolk and duck egg. Chicken Eggs have been a staple item in my diet for many years so this is pretty disappointing as I love them!! 🥜🐮🐄🐣🍅. Other foods that came up include certain nuts, cows milk, white rice, blueberries, radish, tomato, whey, string bean, celery, crab, cottage cheese, sugar cane, sesame seed, kidney bean. And wait for it ......... coffee bean 😢. I have been advised that you can’t rely solely on these results and there are other considerations but at least it’s a start. 🤗You know what, I’m just excited that I finally have some answers. There are so many other food options I can choose from and it will simply make me more creative in the kitchen. 🍤🥥. I cooked a gorgeous coconut prawn dish last night, I wasn’t able to have either for the past 7 weeks - so happy I’m not allergic. Test results didn’t show a reaction to wheat which is amazing or brazil nuts - that makes me happy too, I love Brazil nuts 😊. 💫Knowledge is power 💪. We head to Vietnam for a family holiday tonight - no white rice, peanuts, sesame oil and eggs will make the trip interesting 😂. Ps my nutritionist said I can still have 1 long black a day as it was a lower reaction 😋. #foodallergies #rash #results
