    Seafood, especially shellfish are notorious for causing allergies. If you've high cholesterol too and are a frequent shellfish eater, don't order such. As for nuts, any processed variety, read the small print on the package and you'll find that such has been processed on same machinery as peanuts ... and for some people this is a deadly circumstance. Overindulgence in just about any food has repercussions. Too, watch for interactive circumstances with prescribed medications. Goodbye grapefruit juice for me.

    I had an undesired outcome when using Benadryl as a sleep aid. It served to dry out my mucous membranes, including the inside of my lips. My lips would stick to my teeth while I played resulting in swollen lips and a total inability to play, I use melatonin now when I have trouble sleeping.

    Good thought, E1. I along with others here suspect either shellfish or nuts, since they seem to be common catalysts for allergic reactions.

    Sad to say, but sometime genetics wins over diet... and more often than not genetics IS the greatest factor. We cannot change the genes unfortunately; however we can change Jeans, it just depends on how you spell it.

    Indeed true, which is why I don't worry too much about "risk factors for heart disease"... no family history.

    Zyrtec D twice a day has saved me from allergies this season. I dont know about food allergies though.

    over a decade ago, when I worked in a factory --- they had some stringent health rules (no smoking, acceptable cholesterol level, no high blood pressure, not being overweight) --- undoubtedly you could have all these problems and still work there -- they however slammed you with HEALTH CARE COSTS (Penalties) for NOT being healthy. I was 15% over the limit in cholesterol, and 15 lbs over the weight limit --- and had 3 months for the recheck -- I worked out a little (barely enough) to make the 15 lb loss ----- the amazing thing was that I ate 2 cloves of raw garlic each day ---- the nurse was amazed at the cholesterol level had dropped by 20%, and she wanted to know "WHAT MEDS" I was on for this accomplishment in 3 months ----- GARLIC!!!

    Check my post #5 Nature Boy. I'm 13 posts ahead of you. Loose a few more lbs, and maybe... just maybe you can catch me!
