Could You Be Allergic To Wine??

Filed under: TY KUHealthAlcohol

Wine Allergy

Oh no please do not let this be the case — we just CAN'T be allergic to one of the best things on Earth!

And yet, many people are: wine allergies are real, and can be mistaken for other problems!

A new German study sent out questionnaires to thousands of people living in a wine-producing region of western Germany.

Of the 950 people who then filled it out, almost 25 percent of the group reported some mild signs of alcohol intolerance!!

This included flushed or itchy skin, a runny nose, diarrhea, and a rapid heartbeat.

So what's the deal?

Well, wine has proteins from grapes, bacteria, and yeast, as well as sulfites and other organic compounds — any one of those may cause an allergic-like reaction. Not to mention, a specific type of protein allergen called "LTP" is found in the skins of grapes, which makes red wine more likely to cause a problem. White wine is fermented without the grape skins.

As long as your symptoms a mild, you don't really have to give up wine — but hey, there are alternatives like switching to white wine, or TY KU sake, which is made out of rice and avoids grapes altogether.

Being severely allergic to wine would be a fate worse than death!

Filed under: Etc.Miley CyrusKim KardashianDiets

Kim K Gluten Free Body

First thing's first — we should say that that there are reports that a gluten-free diet might not be as fab as everyone thinks… unless you truly have a gluten intolerance.

Having said that, Kim Kardashian's body is ROCKING here, whether or not it's due to a necessary gluten-free diet — which is exactly what she seems to be claiming of the photo!

This is actually an older pic of her from Instagram, but she shared it again on Friday with these words of wisdom along with it:

“Gluten free is the way to be…Oh Hi.”

A lot of celebs have been jumping on the gluten-free train, including Miley Cyrus, but she specifically said she has that pesky gluten allergy!

Like we said though: either way, you're lookin' fab, Kim!

Dang, gurl!!

Miley Cyrus Is NOT Anorexic!

Filed under: Miley CyrusFitnessHealthEating Disorders

Miley Food Allergy

Miley Cyrus wants it to be known that she is NOT anorexic.

So, why do many people think she is?? Apparently she has food allergies!

And, if you know anything about food allergies, not only can they wreak havoc on your system and cause you to lose weight, but they can also be pretty dangerous!

Here what the starlet said:

“For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!”

As long as you're healthy and happy, we don't care if you're thin or big!

The key word there is healthy, for sure. So if Miley says she's healthy but has just had to change her diet ways because of allergies — well then maybe some people should back off!

Hope all the changes are helping, Miley!

People Are Actually Allergic To Water!

Filed under: Health

water allergy

OMG! This sounds HORRIBLE!

Can U imagine being allergic to water? Because we can't, but unfortunately, some people actually are!

Dr. Alan Baptist, associate program director for allergy and immunology at the University of Michigan, faced the biggest challenge in his career when a young woman came to him to help treat migraine-like pain and reddish welts appearing on her skin when she came into contact with H20.

As it turns out, she was allergic to water!

Aquagenic urticaria is the term used to the describe the rare condition, which Baptist feels is largely undiagnosed because "if a person showers every day and has urticaria every day, their doctor would think they just have chronic urticaria."

Luckily for anybody who is allergic to water, at least they can drink it! The reaction only occurs when water comes in contact with the outer skin.

Still, overall, it's a pretty miserable situation for any human being. Not only can a sufferer not cool off with a dip in the pool, relax in a hot bath, or have fun with a water balloon fight, they have to weary of getting too passionate in the sack because saliva will irritate their skin too! Similarly, tears and sweat can trigger a reaction too!

Scientists can't explain how or why the allergy occurs, but Baptist was at least able to control the young woman's headaches and welts by mixing together a concoction of antihistamines, anti-cholinergic medications, and SSRI drugs.

Have U ever known anybody with a similar allergy? If so, how do they cope with it?
