Tree nut allergies are the most common food allergies. One misconception is that having an allergy to one type of nut means that you should avoid all nuts. However, after much research, we know that this is not entirely true. Some tree nuts are more closely related in species than others, so it is important to discuss your allergies with an allergist to find out which tree nuts to avoid. At Allergy & ENT Associates, we have a variety of tests available that can pinpoint your exact tree nut allergy to help you adjust your food choices, if necessary. Tree nut allergies are different from environmental allergies in how your body responds. They can lead to symptoms like abdominal pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, trouble swallowing, mouth irritation, itchy eyes and throat, hives, nasal congestion, shortness of breath, and even anaphylaxis.
