Food allergies in restaurants

Common Questions and Answers about Food allergies in restaurants


Avatar m tn Another possibility is gustatory rhinitis which is triggered the maximum by hot spicy food and alcohol. Usually food items in restaurants are more heavy on oils and spices. Sneezing can also be a response to distended stomach and usually one eats more when one goes out for a meal. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Maybe an allergy test should be done. Take care!
Avatar n tn It is always best to strictly avoid food allergens. Many people with food allergens also need to avoid eating at restaurants or at least certain types of restaurants. Also, steroid inhalers could prevent wheezing episodes. Warm regards.
Avatar n tn I was going to suggest that, too! I have recently discovered food allergies & was thinking that if I started getting sick @ particular restaurants, etc., I'd be able to keep track.
Avatar f tn m having a difficult time finding restaurants in the Bergen County area (I live in the Pascack Valley) that are allergy-aware and safe. Can you give me some suggestions? I'd love to be able to safely dine out with my family. Thanks.

Avatar n tn Diet, a lot of the time. Food allergies, eating at restaurants and picking up some kind of foodborne pathogen, or just something your body doesn't like.
Avatar n tn I am 47 and have just been tested for food allergies. I am allergic to soy, corn and canola oil. I don't have much in the way of recipes and was wondering if anyone else out there has this problem and would like to share or swap their recipes with me?
Avatar n tn t eat at restaurants much, and when you do, choose those that have lean options with smaller servings. No fast food unless it's Panera Bread level. You want lots of leafy green vegetables and other vegetables, but easy on any starchy ones. Lean meat/poultry/fish are good. Fresh fruit. No soda, little juice. Drink water. Dairy is not that great for you. Try almond milk if you don't have nut allergies. Fresh foods that are cooked from scratch are best.
Avatar f tn If it's mucus, then for sure it's likely the dietary issue as suggested. Often a food sensitivity is involved when this happens. So, I would suggest seeing a naturopath for proper guidance on doing an elimination diet to find out what those food sensitivities are. Food sensitivities are not the same thing as true food allergies, so an allergist can't diagnose these as food allergies. It is important to investigate food sensitivities before you develop new or worse symptoms.
Avatar m tn Now recently, when she goes into crowded places like restaurants or today a birthday party, the noise of everyone talking makes her isntantly dizzy and then she feels intensely sick for hours. Also recently whenever food is cooking like crab cakes were cooking today she could not stand the smell of it and had to leave the house. She has only been eating once a day. She has had ear tests, mri's, she just had another test the other day.
Avatar m tn Seriously, if anyone figures it out post it here! I think there is some preservative in the food that is used at most/all restaurants. Just wish I knew exactly what it is so I could avoid it. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/504215'>why does my boyfriend sneeze after eating?</a>.
Avatar f tn Where 'bouts in DC are going to? DC proper, someplace close within the beltway in VA? Maryland? That makes a big diff in where to go... However, the transportation is excellent, the DC area's subway transportation system can get you just about anywhere in the beltway area with relative ease and no parking. Hubby likes to go to Murphy's Irish Pub in Fairfax,'s family oriented, not really a bar, but the singing is excellent and the food is also good.
Avatar f tn t eat fast food very often, I noticed that fast food restaurants was a big BIG problem. The Mucus was really bad after eating a cheese burger and fries....I would have the problem for an hour or 2 after eating until I disposed of several ounces of mucus (maybe a cup)??? I still haven't nailed the problem down 100% but I have made huge progress and I can now determine what NOT to eat before a business meeting, conference call or movie, etc...

Avatar m tn Zero risk or everyone who goes to restaurants would be infected from HIV positive staff somewhere in the food chain who accidentally dripped some blood in food. HIV is inactivated in air and saliva.
Avatar f tn I never recommend steroid shots in dogs due to side effects, and in general steroids are minimally helpful in cases of food allergy. The flaking of the skin is most likely due to a secondary bacterial skin infection, which should be treated with antibiotics; steroids will worsen skin infection. The diet change alone will not resolve infection, but the correct hypoallergenic diet should prevent itch and infections from recurring.
Avatar f tn A few things have been "different" in my health. I broke out in hives in late Jan without eating anything. Then in March I was having difficulties berathing along with diahrrea, chronic diahrea. Now in April, after starting to feel better, I started getting ithcy all over and waking up with scratches so I started using dove for sensitive skin wash and cerave lotion. Those helped a bit, Last weekend we went to eat. I had white rice, grilled chicken, and black beans.
Avatar m tn You can be allergic to the cocoa, to the corn (corn syrup), to the dairy (milk products), or to other ingredients they put in to process chocolates. Eliminate all and then try adding in different kinds, do a food log and pay attention to ingredients. You may be able to figure out what part of chocolate bothers you simply by trial and error and tracking. GL!
Avatar n tn Unfortunately with food allergies, the only way to truly identify them is to experiment. In the US that is the standard with food allergies. One thing to look for is sulfites (preservatives). Doctors here recommend that you keep a food diary of what you eat and when, then record any reactions with the time they ocur. There are some alternative medicine treatments that you may want to look into. I am sure that someone will post them for you. I hope you get some answers.
2038601 tn?1333407618 I am a woman who suffers with many allergies..including food allergies. Much of what is good for people is bad for me such as: fruits (all), many vegetables, nuts, wheat (my biggest allergy) just to name a few. I have been to an allergist and was told they have not seen a person like me in a long time...but because of that it has been very hard for me to loose weight. My nutritionist has been great in helping me get on track; however, I have lost touch with her because of my insurance...
Avatar f tn So now I do but I also noticed that before I have a bowel movement I get a HORRIBLE cramp like pain in my lower abdomen that stops me dead in my tracks and sometimes makes me panic. It subsides after 10 seconds and I am trying to get to the bathroom as fast as possible. I have a normal BM but the pain beforehand is crazy. I HATE IT! I wonder if this is due to the higher fiber?
541196 tn?1293552936 Your symptoms do not sound like food allergies. Possibly, food intolerance, which effects the digestive system. There are a slew of gastrointestinal diseases that can cause the symptoms you are experiencing (ie:colitis, irritable bowel synsrome, diverticulitis, crohn's disease, and list goes on). Have you to tried an elimination diet to see what may be causing your symptoms?
Avatar n tn Most definately food allergies can come and go. It is very common actually for example for children with lactose intolerance allergies to actually get better ;and also vice versa for kids who weren't and then when they get into adulthood they become allergic to it. If you eat too much of one thing all the time your body can become intolerant of it and can cause an allergy. And finally yes, it is very possible to have a food allergy and not realize it until you have a reaction.
Avatar n tn Most of the common contaminants cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping. Usually food poisoning is not serious, and the illness runs its course in 24-48 hours. A recommendation would be that you wait the prescribed amount of time posted above, and afterwards purchase a pack of chicken (deli slices would suffice as well) and try a small portion. Since it is precooked there is a very likely chance you may rule out food poisoning.
Avatar m tn Many people with wheat allergies have healthy happy children despite eating wheat throughout the pregnancy. Some people develop food or wheat allergies during pregnancy. Some people have food allergies with subclinical symptoms aka symptoms that don't really present in an obvious way and they continue to eat the offending foods without knowing. Again, her knowing is actually a huge ADVANTAGE.
Avatar m tn Supposedly Chinese food is laden with MSG and I've heard that MSG causes skipped beats in many people. Perhaps that is the connection.
