Hey there,

I’m new to this forum and I just wanted to start off by saying hi!

I’m working with a doctor that specializes on food allergies and I have interview scheduled with him next week. I would like to take this opportunity to ask you what questions you would have for him. Perhaps you would like to know some natural remedies, or maybe you just want to know what is going on in your body. Remember, there are no stupid questions.

To add value to this thread and forum I will post the interview once it’s done. This will also be as a thank you for helping me out. It will be a direct download link…no email, no forums to fill out. Just take it

I look forward to seeing your questions.

Brandon

Remember there are no stupid questions. I want to make sure I cover the issues that real people have.

It will probably be some stupid questions, but I don't know much about allergy and I never had an allergy, except an allergy to false people :oops:
So :

- What other factors can cause allergy except genetic?
- Can food cause allergy? Let's say I was a healthy person yesterday, but today I eate something and became allergic :drool: to something :uhm: Or that "something" caused an allergy to something else??

- I have two small kids- 3yrs and 4yrs old, is there any certain food you suggest to avoid?

Thanks :oops:

p.s. Sorry for the question attack. One more:

-can people be allergic to a food smell?If yes what reactions it can cause? I'm relating to kitchen workers and safety

My son (8 months old) was given egg for the first time a week ago and had a rash on his stomach and back when I undressed him for his bath in the evening. Is this likely to be caused by the egg? If so do I feed him egg again to confirm it or avoid it? Is he likely to grow out of it?

He also has eczema, although he's not had a flare up since it was diagnosed. I'm avoiding feeding him peanuts (although I still eat nuts and I'm breastfeeding) partly because he has eczema and in my head I'm thinking he's more likely to have nut allergy. Is this sensible?

Ok, final question; why does he think food allergies are on the increase (or is this just better diagnosis or misdiagnosis?)

I went to a seminar on food safety once and a lady in the class was allergic to just about everything. Funny thing was she was not allergic to much until she started working as a nurse and developed allergic reactions to latex. After that she said the flood gates opened and left he in her current state.

I guess the question in all this is, is it common to have one allergy that opens up all other allergies? and how common is it?

Also, from a food safety view point. Is it ever going to be possible to determine how much of an allergic product is to much? Peanuts can be lethal at most levels but many allergies, like dairy seem to be more an "intolerence" than an allergy. I ask this becuase I see the question about how much cleaning is needed after an allergen is run a on a production line and then a non-allergen is run.

good luck with your interview. I look forward to the results.

Hi,
I have worked with one of the top allergen experts here in the UK for the past year and have learnt a huge amount from him. I could provide you with many questions, but it depends on who the person is that you are interviewing !!

Hello

Maybe a bit late but I just saw the topic...
I always wondered why there are different allergene lists.
Sometimes cocoa is mentioned but I never heared that someone died of cocoa...

Good luck with the interview!

Try to gather information on the subject and then focus to one topic to another... List down possible questions to make your conversation much smoother. :)

Hey Glutenfree 123,

You should consult the following Australian Webiste and may get a few questions from there to ask the expert.

The website is: http://www.allergenbureau.net/

Good luck with the interview
