MEAT ALLERGY REFERENCE LINKS

TICK BITE REACTION - Not about lyme

Although lyme & other tick-borne infections could certainly go hand in hand and someone who has all allergic reaction could also have infection. So, it's disappointing that more journalists just don't even mention that.

Still, just about the meat allergy to the bite, some important detail:

Episode 32: Dr. Scott Commins and tick-induced meat allergies

39 minute radio interview -

the radio host's voice is so high pitched that I cannot bear to listen past a minute. Hope you can.

https://www.med.unc.edu/medicine/news/chairs-corner/podcast/alpha-gal

WHAT NOW? No Cow, etc. [poster's humor, not the website's]

“Initially, we ask people to strictly avoid red meat—beef, pork, lamb, this would include venison, bison, buffalo—anything essentially that has hooves and walks on four legs, we ask them to avoid.”

- Dr. Scott Commins

TESTING

Dr. Scott Commins describes alpha-gal allergy, which scientists believe is triggered by a tick bite and can cause a reaction to red meat.

Dr. Commins talks about the symptoms of a reaction, how one can be tested for the allergy, and changes in diet recommended for patients who have alpha-gal.

Dr. Scott Commins is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Rheumatology, Allergy, and Immunology and UNC Thurston Arthritis Research Center. . . .

Testing described in articles above may differ with newer cases around the world, just keep that in mind.
