Good Morning & Welcome To The Alpha Gal Allergy Blog Page

Currently it’s 25 degrees on Long Island, NY and I’m still drinking Venti Iced soy chai’s, thank goodness for drive thru Starbucks. Whoever invented drive through its genius. So I wanted to start this blog page to talk about my own personal experience’s with this nuisance of an allergy, and I would like to hear from anyone suffering with the Alpha Gal allergy, meat, dairy or any allergy, even if you are looking to eat healthier and loose weight I want to hear from You. I will try to post on this page at least once a week. So yesterday I had a meeting at my youngest daughters school (she has a learning disability) and the night before I forgot to take my allergy pill (I can’t stand taking theses pills, its like taking a sleeping pill) and don’t you know in the middle of the meeting I started to break out my hands got bright red and I started to feel itchy. Its funny how missing just one dose and it looks like I have a really bad sunburn. I don’t mind having the whole alpha gal meat & dairy allergy, but having the slightest amount of stress triggering a break out Come On Already!!!! My allergist says they haven’t linked stress with the alpha gal allergy, Well my conclusion is having alpha gal and stress don’t mix and you will break out. Is there anyone out there suffering with the same issue? I would love to hear your experiences and what you’ve done to alleviate this issue. Well that’s it for now, have a spiftacular day.

  1. I am so happy to find a place to comment about the Alpha Gal Allergy. My husband was diagnosed in 2009 with “problems” due to Chemo therapy from cancer treatments. After 5 ER visits, we finally heard he might have this allergy. Being from Missouri, on a ranch with horses. …lots of ticks – it has been difficult. Not to mention the disasters of eating in a restaurant. Struggling for 6 years, he has – on 9/14 become allergic to all red meat. We heard if you are tick bite free for 3 years….you can be tested …perhaps you are free of the problem?? We heard of Irish Spring soap, garlic etc., to ward off ticks?

    • Thanks for your comments and welcome to the site. Sounds like you two have been through a lot. I’m going on 3 years now since I’ve been diagnosed and my levels are still very high to beef, pork and dairy. Has your husband had the alpha gal test? And has he been to see an allergist? It’s such a life changing adjustment for not only the person suffering from the allergy but also family members. Since I’ve started my research on this nuisance of an allergy I’ve noticed there hasn’t been much traction on a cure and not enough info out there for the public. There are a couple sites on facebook such as alpha gal Kentucky “there is a lady on there that raises emu and says it taste just like beef, she has also recommended duck bacon “which I’ve tried taste just like Canadian bacon”. I hope this info was helpful.
