Has anyone else experienced an uptick of food allergies as they get older?
I'm not saying this is related to 20+ years with a ED, probably the quality of foods declining.... but at 37 I how have allergies to gluten, dairy, coconut, some soy products, white potatoes, green bell peppers (not all nightshades), garlic, cane sugar, and buckwheat. These are not anaphylactic reactions but a host of other reactions from dermatitis, full body itching/hive, throat tightness without airway restriction, etc.
I know some of this is probably chemicals used in growing food in the US, even though I try to eat mostly organic.
Makes me wish I could have enjoyed food at some point in my earlier life.
The only benefit to learning about these allergies in the last several years is that cutting things out has really helped my joint discomfort and inflammation.
At any rate, just curious!
