Health & Fitness Tips From Dayna Deters

Kelly Cordes February 2014

My Friend Dayna Deters stops by every week to discuss Health and Nutrition with our listeners.  Here’s Dayna’s notes for you this week:

“Do you feel bloated, fatigued, congested, and less energetic? Do you also have digestive issues, tummy rumbling, stomach pain, and painful joints? Well, it could be because of food allergies and intolerances and how they can hinder your weight-loss goals.

I deal with my own food allergies on a daily basis.  I have Celiac Disease and I also have an intolerance to dairy. I found out I had Celiac Disease when I was 25 years old and I’m still learning about it. It still amazes me to think what one feels when you eliminate your allergy out of your diet.
I will let you in on a little info about me last year. I love baking and cooking and when I would cook I used cooking spray.  Well, little did I know that Pam spray led me to feel very weak, have no energy, bloated EVERYWHERE, and needing a nap at 11am. I’m an energizer bunny, so this was tough on me.  I figured I would get some labs done to see if I was lacking something. Low and behold, I actually had a VERY toxic level of B12, which is very hard to do since it is a water soluble vitamin. Next, I had to get checked for a couple of cancers because my B12 level was dangerously high and wasn’t budging. That was a scare! As of now, my levels have been going down slowly, but I have checkups every 3 months. So this being said, when talking about allergies, it can be a much more serious topic than we think.”
Here are 8 of the most common food allergens and intolerances:

  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts (such as almonds, cashews, walnuts)
  • Fish (such as bass, cod, flounder)
  • Shellfish (such as crab, lobster, shrimp)
If you think you might have a food allergy, make an appointment for allergy testing. It could make a huge difference in being healthy and being dangerously ill.
