I can’t possibly list all the foods and spices and flavorings I react to, but believe me when I say there are few recipes or restaurant meals I don’t have to modify. Add celiac disease and eosinophilic esophagitis (allergic esophagus) to the mix, and you get one girl who struggles to find something to eat. Unfortunately, my weight doesn’t represent how little I can eat!
Below is the short list. If you want to read the story of my diagnosis, go to PeanutAllergy.com: Diagnosed with Multiple Food Allergies as an Adult: Amy’s Story.
In addition to gluten because I have celiac disease, I react the most to:
- corn (I can tolerate small amounts)
- guar flour
