Food Allergies

Recently I have been having a ton of stomach problems, it has been keeping me home from school some days and causing a lot of pain. I went to the Doctor and they mostly wrote it off as ‘stress’, but said they would do some blood tests on me.

Later that weekend I ended up at the ER because of such severe stomach cramps, they gave me medicine that helped temporarily, but what I needed is something that would make me better.

Well today I got the results of my blood test back. I’ve got several food allergies and an infection in my stomach from a bacteria called H. pylori, which most people have but it lives nicely in their gut, rather then causing problems.

Allergies include:

  • apples
  • beef
  • carrots
  • codfish
  • crab
  • oats
  • oranges
  • tomatoes
  • peanuts
  • pork
  • shrimp
  • soybeans
  • strawberries
  • egg
  • corn
  • milk
  • wheat

It’s been decided that I have a gluten sensitivity and need to start a gluten free diet, along with no more soy (which I kinda live off of). Here is to the first day of starting a new and improved diet that will hopefully improve my overall health.
