Here is the full question, followed by my answer:
I’ve recently gone to an allergist to get a food allergy test and one of the items that I’m allergic to is yeast. I’ve been asked to go on an elimination diet, but I’m having a difficult time trying to figure out what I can and cannot eat. I’ve found a lot of information on yeast-free diets for yeast infection, but would it be the same diet for a yeast allergy?
Yes, the yeast allergy diet is pretty close, if not the same as a yeast infection diet.
A yeast infection is an over growth of yeast, but most people have some level of candidiasis in their bodies, so if you are allergic to yeast, you want to do everything you can to discourage it.
Most people on a candidiasis (yeast infection) diet avoid all types of yeast, in case other types of yeast trigger a reaction.
After you’ve been on the elimination diet for a while, you can start reintroducing certain foods and see if this makes you feel worse or not.
Good luck with your yeast allergy. Let us know how it goes.
