I was recently tested for several foods via blood test through my LLMD.

What kinds of reactions to people have when they eat some thing there allergic to?

Some of the things I'm reacting to are chicken, salmon and several spices.

It's going to be so hard to give those up.

My gut is an absolute mess from all the antibiotics.

I've been break out in rash about once every few weeks, so I just got tested too. I tend to notice bloating, stomach pain, and if I really overdo it, I get diarrhea. Getting my food allergy panel done was such a huge help.

I'm reacting to chicken, beef, all kinds of dairy, soy, etc... I'm meeting with a nutritionist on Monday for help with meal planning.

Food intolerances and allergies are different reactions.

I have food allergies. If I eat peanuts or pecans, I will likely have a drastic drop in blood pressure, trouble breathing, and will have to go to the hospital. Shellfish will make me break out in hives and have diarrhea. Those are my true allergies.

Intolerances are more subtle. You might not have a reaction right away. And they can change over time. I used to have a very long list of intolerances (if that is your entire list, consider yourself fortunate!!) but as I healed my gut, many went away. I still don't eat those foods daily, but I am more tolerant than I used to be of some of them.

Avoiding the foods you react to should help the inflammation in your gut settle down a bit. If you're like me, you will also have to work on healing gut infections and rebuilding good flora.

Most food allergies happen because of leaky gut. Repair the gut and stuff gets better. A good ND can help with this and more.
