Finally getting somewhere
Sunday, October 11, 2020
So I’m my last post I mentioned reactions to sushi. Come to find out, while I may have an issue with raw fish, the main problem is a reaction to latex! The allergist has diagnosed me with a latex allergy even though technically it’s not a true allergy, but some rare systemic reaction. All I know is that I had to have 2 injections of epinephrine during the testing so I need to avoid latex and many fruits and vegetables related to latex. Also means I have to avoid eating out even more than usual because with Covid even places that don’t normally use latex gloves may be using them (our sushi place always uses latex gloves).
So now I have to avoid gluten, apples, bananas, avocados, kiwi, peppers, cucumber, papaya, and watermelon. There are probably others, but these are the ones I know.
So life is even more interesting these days as I try to figure out healthy foods that I can eat. If nothing else, I can have orange juice for now.
I may not like the answers I’m getting, but at least I’m getting them.
