    A guide on cross reactive food allergens
     

     

    Once IgE mediated food allergies are diagnosed either by blood or skin test, we may continue to have reactions, even though we are 100% avoiding those specific foods. Not all testing is 100% accurate, but in addition our immune system may be recognizing other items that have a similar protien as the allergen itself. We call this Cross reactive allergen syndrome. 

     

    The only way to know for sure if one of these is also causing a cross reactive action is to avoid all foods in the food family for at least 30 days- some doctors recommend up to 6 months and then begin a reintroduction process,  one food at a time. (According the Southern California Asthma, Allergy & Immunology Clinic food reintroduction process should be done with doctor's permission and never alone.) A certified AllerCoach can also assist you in understanding this chart. 

    How it works:

    If you are allergic to ________then be careful of or avoid____________               It could cross react with the actual food allergen.
