Many of my patients come to see me as a result of their allergy symptoms. But at times, they also confuse intolerances with allergies. I decided to sit down with a leading pediatric allergist Dr. Dave Stukus and chat all things allergy. Oh and I thought I'd state it clearly right here: Food sensitivities tests don't work and are a full-on SCAM! Always consult your doctor before testing yourself or your family members for allergies!

But I know plenty of people including myself who can go into shock just by touching a surface that someone else touched and than I touched after or anyone ... especially people with peanut allergies

    • I can't be at a bribe (barbeque) coz am so allergic to all meat that being around places it's prepared in large amounts can send me into shock. It's so stupid I can't believe it, especially since I can eat them but in very small amounts like once a week. My cheat day usual consists of a sausage or egg once a month or so 😂

  • Whoa! Back up! I have lactose intolerance as far as as cow's milk is concerned. All dairy products and other kinds of milk, like sheep or goat don't affect me! Mum was a paediatrician: her solution was condensed milk with sugar in it.

  • Hi .. I think i have a sugar intolerance problem but i have no commun syntoms as gloating , upset stomach etc etc what i get is red patches on my legs specifically , for example last night i had to work 10 hour shift so during lunch break i decided to eat an almond Snickers bar and that triggered itching , skin hives and later on red spots on my legs what test should i take or what Dr should i check with to make sure the results are correct. Thank you.

  • I have just been diagnosed with mild lactose deficiency and slight lactose intolerance. I had a blood allergy test which came back negative with no allergies (I'm allergic to mould, so I have no clue why it wasn't picked up.). The hydrogen lactose breath test came back positive. Is this common to occur? Is it common in patients to have lactose deficiency and lactose intolerance? Thank you for answering my questions.

  • I can bet no body is as allergic as i am. Severe rhinitis always sneezing specially early in the morning, runny nose, itchy throat, watery eyes but no fever but i feel tired always. 😢😪🤧😷. Sometimes i wanted to die due to my allergies the only cure for few hours is the Fexofenadine hcll pill . I am anemic as well. Many doctors suggested me for food allergy test but i did not go for any allergy test cx i know i am allergic to so many things dust, dander, cooking smell, perfumes, onions smell , lemon . Citrates 😑 some times i think how long will i survive like this 😣

  • Fun fact about Celiac testing is that most people get their allergy panel results well before they have a diagnostic endoscopy scheduled. Since wheat/gluten will show up on that panel, many people go gluten-free before their endoscopy. But you are required to eat gluten leading up to the endoscopy in order to have an accurate diagnosis. Realistically, people whose symptoms align with Celiac are unlikely to comply with that requirement because of how debilitating their symptoms are, so you have a huge potential for misdiagnosis as NCGI. This is what happened to me, and given my symptoms were verifiably affecting my brain, joints, and causing multiple deficiencies, my doctor believes I have Celiac despite my endo results being "on the cusp". So it's not just an issue of defining terms, but it's also an issue of better testing protocols, or even just shorter wait periods between tests.

  • Man I love allergy tests. Those arm tests I did every few months as a child because they couldn't confirm things. I knew I was allergic to animals with fur because I felt like I was dying around animals with fur. But that plastic thing would end up blowing up my entire arm. The animal ones were the biggest but the others would be taken over by them or would have slightly smaller ones. One doctor came back and just went hmm we think you're allergic to the plastic. I was like you're kidding me...

  • Omg so a few months ago and even a few times before this once while my daughter ate cashews and another when she ate flax seeds, she had what we both believed to be a severe allergic reaction to them. Both times her eyes swelled up like she was punched , she had a rash and itching.She recently went to an allergist who ONLY checked her for peanut allergies which in turn said she had nothing and told her it could basically be all in her head and sent her home.Shes 24 and I'm afraid the next time she could have a worst reaction and be hospitalized. Any suggestions help

  • Doctor Mike, I really enjoyed this video! I personally have multiple food allergies but I also have an intolerance to tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and eggplant. I tell people all the time that squash will make me go into anaphylaxis but tomatoes only make sick as a dog. And I agree about EpiPens being scary, I always have mine with me but the first time I needed it was while I was driving in the car by myself and I couldn’t get to them. And I was so scared of using them that I kept asking myself if I really needed them yet. Ironically it was on my way home from the allergist office 😑😂( I had just gotten the starting dose of my allergy shots)

  • I'll be honest, I feel like this video is downplaying the sebeyof some food allergies. My skin literally burns if I touch peanut or mushrooms.I cannot be anywhere near most of my allergens. Some are airborne and will cause facial and oral itching, even brain fog if I so much a smell them. Food allergies are much more serious than most people think.

  • MRT test saved me from years of IBS pain, advised by a specialist doctor who normally uses diet to limit the reactions of epilepsy or even effects of down syndrome in children. Diet is such a complex yet crucial part of our health. I'd have never known the weird foods and spices I'm food sensitive to with isolating foods, I did the reaction calming diet and excluded the items that came out red and limited the yellow. Amazing. Saved my life, I can have a predictable day now. I'd recommend talking to some professors and experts in the field before you dismiss it publicly, amongst people who don't have the knowledge to be able to critically evaluate your videos. Most of UK doctors I met were "textbook" doctors and some didn't even know what it is, I'd be surprised to expect a publicity-driven doctor to know in what situations you can apply it successfully and the full extent to which it could be used for. Please investigate further and get some case studies out. Ironic for a "I Know All" TEDx Expect doctor not to research thoroughly. Understanding various blood results without using "ranges" is an art, in fact in many cases referring to ranges can be greatly misleading. Still love your spirit. Just do it responsibly, think about the impact it may have.

  • Omg so on a scale I took for a milk allergy, (like professional test, I’m clearly allergic) my (I think it was ICG number) came back as 86! And we also did the food challenge with a tiny piece of cake containing milk, and I had hives, itching, swelling, anaphylaxis, a little shock, and fever. I eventually needed two doses of epinephrine and some other medication I don’t remember, and was in the allergist’s office for 7 hours! Yesssssssss epi pens need to be cheaper! Allergies are real people! I hate it when people confuse lactose intolerant with allergy, but it can be fun to explain sometimes lol. Thanks so much for making this video!

  • Hello everyone! I wanted to share that I have had success with Biomagnetism therapy. I suffered for years with food and respiratory allergies. After a month of treatment, I have been able to eat a all types of foods that I had become allergic to over these last years. I am happy to say that I am lucky to have found this treatment. Please have faith and try this out if you have food or respiratory allergies! Biomagnetism can help heal other illnesses, but I wanted to share my experience as it pertains to allergies. I have been living abroad the past 10 years and can say Biomagnetism saved my life, as I was having constant severe reactions. I am now able to eat pork, peanuts, walnuts, chicken, intake vitamins, fruits and vegetables. I was also previously having allergic reactions to bath/shower products, tobacco, vitamins-B complex group, Vitamin C and even fruits & vegetables caused these reactions. My goal is to spread awareness and help as much people who suffer from food or respiratory allergies find this solution, as I know the danger of what it is to have food allergies. I had been hospitalized various times and in other situations, was lucky to have medicine nearby. I am promoting no specific doctor nor clinic, as I just want to spread awareness that this alternative treatment exists and it works! My gratefulness is to God, who I feel would want me to share this information as it can help save lives. After the 1st session, it took 4 days until I started to see first results and start to eat small portions of foods that used to cause allergic reactions. After 2nd session, I started to eat higher portions and all types of foods. Today I can say that I am eating with confidence, no fear & no reactions! I have not taken nor needed any allergy medicine since I started with the Biomagnetism treatment. As well, I thank God, that I can eat every type of food and will not need to spend thousands in medicines nor hospital bills. Adios Big Pharma! This is my testimony and the results can be different for some, just have patience. God bless you all and I do hope this helps someone out there! We are one with God and we should be able to eat any type of food without having any allergic reaction! Some videos to help know about this awesome alternative treatment! - What is Biomagnetism? - Testimony. - Testimony. - Ingrid's Experience with Biomagnetism-

The lady from the clinic (claiming herself as a doctor) gave me an explanation which didn't really make sense. I do have chronic headaches/migraine like they mentioned. But on a daily basis, I work in front of a laptop, teach students, and am short-sighted, so eliminating food wouldn't help much anyway.

Also Allergic to soy, eggs, fresh cut grass, sesame seeds, fish, chickpeas, gram flour. And pollen, dogs and cats fyi I just sneeze when dogs and cats/pollen are near me. But the rest of the allergens would definitely kill me lol.^ Edit: I just remembered I'm also allergic to bananas, tomatoes, avocado, mangos, and couple other fruits that I can't recall but the fruit allergies just make my lips swell mouth itchy and bananas make me throw up.

Most importantly all nuts. Every nut including peanuts almonds, coconut, shea. All of them. Also all pain meds rx or otc. They all give my horrible violent intense migraines. Kill me now migraines. I used to live on pb&j. Never had a problem with nuts or any pain meds. Just in the 10-15 years the bite me back big time. Now I have a reaction to dairy. Not migraines but other awful symptoms.

I've cut out all the usual eczema causing stuff and there's not much else for me to do that the doctor suggests :( It's clear that I'm allergic to something I touch but I've no idea what it could be and other than suggesting it's soap (I use non soap based products already argh) my doctor doesn't really help... I've done MANY food avoidance tests throught my life (citrus fruits affect my eczema on other parts of my body so I don't eat citrus fruits)... It makes me want to cry though, how little my doctor even tries to help :( (I'm in the UK)

  • I recently developed allergy reaction and in process of eliminating what it is exactly I'm allergic to. This information is what I need right now. Thank you!

  • I was wandering about the case when the smell alone of the food you're allergic to causes a reaction. If there's a way to avoid it, maybe get used to it?

  • True Doc's.....Non-FDA approved scams...LDT (Laboratory Developmental Tests) in the bottom of their disclaimers it tells you. So basically if any of these tests come out abnormal they have no clinical diagnostic purpose. Your doctor will have you repeat all these test that were abnormal. Don't waist your money

  • My patients with unspecific symptoms prefer "bio-resonance-testing" some energetics are offering in our area. And every time they come back with a list, that always contains wheat, tomatos, milk and at least 10 different other foods they "have to avoid". And then I have to rebuild trust to myself and to scientific proven methods and teach my patients that they have lost lots of money to some "guru". But the good news is, they are "allowed"to eat everything they want again.

  • I know this is from a few months ago... But I need help knowing a definition of something. I have struggled with very bad attacks of acid reflux, nausea and indigestion my entire life. I just assumed it was normal and my Dr. always just said I had GERD and treated me as such... Which I always felt made things worse... I had to get off dairy and soy when I was breastfeeding my baby because they showed the classic sign of infant dairy allergy. I noticed that those symptoms almost completely disappeared. But I still had an issue occasionally ( and I mean really sick). And my baby still had mild symptoms around whenever I'd get sick. I did some research and decided to cut out all legumes. As if by magic, all my reflux issues disappeared as well as my baby's issue. I've added a few back in with limited or little problem. But certain ones make me sick immediately. Is this an allergy, intolerance, or sensitivity? I also noticed that I itch all over if I use a cosmetic or hygiene product that contains soy or pea protein. But I don't have hives and have never had anaphylaxis. I'd ask my Doc but she always just hands me a pill...

  • I have severe allergic bronchic asthma and I have 14 allergies some of the worst are in cats, mold, dust and in foods avocado I had almost died when I was 6 years old from my cat allergy from anafilactic shock. I went to many doctors and all gave me meds and anihistaminics and told me to stay away from what triggers them. After 20 years of living in fear of everything I finally found a way to stop my allergies. I had to remove all carbs from my diet even vegetables, I also had to remove lean protein. fats are OK as long as they re animal saturated fats and are low on omega 6 such as quality beef and fish, salmon sardines,so I had inflammation in control but what really healed my allergies was intermittent fasting. when I fast for more than 14hours ,every single one of my allergies disappear i can even hug and play with cats now and no doctor ever told me about that, they only sold me meds and said nothing can cure allergies. I lost my trust in doctors after that. it's 90% your diet you don't need meds or to suffer, just remove inflammatory foods from your diet and you ll heal everything.

  • My son did Oral immunotherapy to peanuts and it's been completely life changing he no longer has to worry about his food allergy and eats them daily. He had a severe anaphylactic reaction when he was a toddler. He also tested positive for milk but it was a false positive.

  • Not finished video yet but why are ranges for blood tests different depending on where you live? When I get a blood test in my town there is a slightly different range 15 miles away at a different practice

  • I have less than 200ml of full fat milk and a small amount of butter each day. But yesterday I ate cheddar cheese, cream cheese and chocolate milk. I found out while walking my dogs this morning why I must never do that again

  • I should’ve watched this before doing the Everlywell test. It said I wasn’t sensitive to anything but given my symptoms I don’t buy it.

  • I'm all for exposure to prevent allergies (makes total sense) but is there any truth to the idea that if you have a food allergy, you will experience more severe symptoms/reactions with every exposure? I've heard that about peanut allergies specifically, but I'm curious as to the truth of it. I have an allergy to Goji berries which I didn't know (it's super random, who would think about goji berries?). I bought granola with goji berries in it once, having no idea. I got a small rash on my forehead the first time I ate it, which I figured was from the heat or something. The next time I had it a few weeks later I got a more severe rash all over my face, and the 3rd time I ate it I got an almost instant full-body rash which is when I made the connection to goji berries. I have NO anxiety over this allergy, but it does seem to support the theory of food allergies getting worse with exposure, so I'm wondering if it's true for all/most/many/any, or just coincidental.
