I haven't formally tested myself for allergies, but I keep a food diary in casei notice a reaction to certain foods.††I have no doubt that everyone, even those without Crohn's have a sensitivity to something, even if it's too mild to notice through observation.
Why do you ask? Do you belive you have an allergy to a certain food?
Yes!††And it took YEARS to figure it out.††I am lactose-intolerant, sensitive to eggs, and allergic to peppers.††My doc says it's the capascain in the peppers most likely.††I break out iin a rash head to toe when eating red pepper, green just makes me sick.††Black pepper is a different family.††
I also have a lot of nausea from eating certain meats.††I've been told it's most likely the liquids used to inject the meet.††And have trouble with a lot of meds, and the doc thinks it's the fillers used.††So it appears that artificial ingredients, additives are a problem, but we will never figure it out.††I try to purchase organic meats now, even though the cost is exhorbitant.††
Food allergy testing is, I am told, unreliable.††Mine were more apparent after being on TPN for a good length of time, then gradually re-introducing foods.††It took 50 years to find out eggs were a big culprit.††And they were one of the things I hate a lot when I was flaring. (Slow learner here).††
Hang in there.††It takes a lot of time and self-observation to figure out.
