protein supplements cause me to become allergic

I have noticed that if I take any type of protein supplement, I become allergic to that type of protein. For example, I have been allergic to soy and dairy for years, but that didn't happen until after I took soy and dairy protein supplements, now I have to take H2 blockers (antihistimes such as Famotidine/Pepcid) to have any dairy or soy. I ate these protein bars made of eggs, now I am allergic to eggs. So, now I am avoiding all protein supplements.

Has anyone heard of this? I'm wondering why my stomach is so sensitive and reacts so badly to protein supplements. Is there a specific diagnosis for this type of thing or any way to stop it or make it better? Thanks.

Re: protein supplements cause me to become allergic

I have no medical training but is sounds like your body is simply functioning its normal functions by making you allergic to anything in a protein bar. But you're very sensible to realize your mistake: if your body develops an allergy from an ingredient in a protein bar, there must be a biological reason why.

I can't say why but - again - you're right to avoid protein bars.

I know there are foods I am allergic to: brown bread, for instance. My body DOES NOT like brown bread. I can't even eat museli or other roughage without getting sick. The dietician may say I need roughage but I won't eat what I'm allergic to. I also have to be careful with flapjacks and any pastry. My body does not like that food: and I've realized never will.

Accept your body, but do definitely avoid all that you're allergic to: whatever that reason may be.
