Gelatine does not seem to be a problem so far. The way they process animal carcasses to produce it denatures proteins a lot. We don't know yet how far goes that allergy; the doctor told Hubby to avoid also calf meat (of course), porc, lamb, and soya product (risk of cross-reaction) until he gets tested for the allergy antibodies. With a little chance maybe he will be able to eat some cheezes. He had not noticed any reaction following cheeze consumption. Maybe cooked products are OK. But for now milk, ice cream, beef meat (he always eated it rare, almost raw), and the dog's food (his hand got numb and tingling if he touches it...) are triggers for sure.
Italian or Indian receipe books would be a good starting point. If there are decent, genuinely Italian run or Indian run restaurants in the vicinity, they may be worth a go. Italian is possible the better option as olive oil is the fat of choice.
I can agree with a slightly different twist :: antibiotics. Here in the US, antibiotics and widely abused by animal growers. We have found that when "strange allergies" pop up, suspect antibiotics. It is far more likely that some penecillin derivitive or one of the decendants like amoxicillin, methicillin, etc, are the root cause. Some foods are notorious for allergies: peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, soy, etc. And you could be allergic to beef, but the frequency of that if very very low.MessyTendon wrote: ↑Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:50 pmSorry but the pathology here is bunk...He never had a history of these allergies. His reaction was to a single glass of milk. Did you happen to save the milk for testing?
Respiratory problems from a single glass of milk? Sure anything is possible, but not having a history of intolerance and suddenly the house comes tubmling down, does not make much sense.
Maybe it was the milk sample and not all milk in general. Given the random nature of this event, I think the underlying issue is more than just an intolerance to lactose.
Something is going on in the gut, he could have had an ongoing mild infection for months even years for this to develop. Giving up meats and dairy is not a bad idea, but it's not magic bullet. Eating near raw meat could also create a nice bacterial party in the gut.
He's got something else going on in the GI tract. Just my two cents...
It may not have been the milk. There has been in the news here recently cases of people becoming suddenly allergic to meat due to having been bitten by a little bugger called the Lonestar Tick. It's so called due to having a white spot, or star, on its' back. A google of the name should bring up the info.
Recently there was a big study run in Israel, involving several families followed for many years, concerning peanut allergies. One grup of famillies were asked to avoid completely peanut products in the first year or two years of live of the kids (dont remember the details), while the other group were asked to introduce peanut as soon as the infant could begin to eat puree. the result? Tadam!!! The kids that were fed peanuts did NOT develop peanut allergy, while there were several cases of allergies in the group that avoid peanut at an early age.kirolak wrote: ↑Sat Aug 12, 2017 3:49 pmI'd say it is an evolutionary matter - we perhaps evolve beyond the need for products that cause hurt to other beings? I used to eat cheese (was brought up vegetarian & have NEVER tasted dead flesh) but once I gave it up, the eczema I had had all my life, cleared up overnight.
