Myth Number 3: Some people are allergic to sugar.
Fact: A condition is called a food allergy when the immune system (the part of the body that fights infections) thinks a certain protein in a food is a "foreign" agent and fights against it. This doesn't happen with sugars and fats.

Sugar allergy

Post by imfixable » Sat May 27, 2006 10:42 pm

i'm new 'round here . . . just thought i'd type in sugar allergy and see what popped up, so here i am. I've always had a terrible reaction to eating "sugar" . . . a rush, shaky, heart arrythymia, headache, etc.
even when eating bananas or other fruit at times. I've tried to explain this to several "medical doctors" who just look at me like I just rolled of the last fruit truck. . . basically, if medical science can't explain it, it's just a case of the "fruitcake" syndrome, right? :shock:

that's all[/list]

that doesn't really sound like an allergic reaction though...

I am allergic to SUGAR

Post by Reds » Sun Aug 13, 2006 6:04 am

When I eat anything with 'sugar' on the ingredient list, well I start to itch, skin goes red, hives cover my stomach and if I ignore it and eat more, hives, reddness and swelling down the legs, butt, and ignore it more... my lungs begin to fail... it is sugar that is the culprit! No doubt about it. When I am pregnant it gets even more severe!

Sugar Allergy

Post by tallyho » Tue Oct 10, 2006 3:34 pm

Everything a person eats has sugar in it, including a minute amount in lettuce. Sugar comes from the ground and adds itself to all plant life. Flour, vegetables, fruit, etc. has sugar in them. Look at a canister of salt. On the label, it indicates sugar in it.

Your liver automatically makes and stores sugar within it and raises it as necessary.

Sugar free is not really sugar free, due to other products that have been added to make up whatever food (cookies, pies, cakes, ice cream, candy,etc). They usually use sugar alcohol, but again, the flour has natural sugar within it. That's why if it has carbs on the label, it has sugar in it.

Granted there are different sugars out there.

sugar allergy

Post by Tina35 » Wed Nov 22, 2006 2:57 pm

I do know I have a sensitivity to refined white sugar. When I eat a dessert, such as cake, I feel stoned. I get stomache cramps then diarrhea. If I eat too much refined sugar I feel nauseated and dizzy. When I was younger, I would throw up. Although, I can eat natural sugars like honey and I am fine. For now I am not diabetic but who knows, in time that may change I have a nephew who has the same problem.

I think you got allergy from the preservative or substance used during the process of sugar making :)
