I’ve seen the torment, pain and embarrassment she’s suffered over the years, trying to deal with eczema. When her doctor finally diagnosed her with a nickel food allergy, I was relieved but knew, she would need help.
When I first started the low-nickel diet I began realizing all the colorful foods no longer in my diet. I worried whether or not I was still getting all of the necessary minerals and vitamins in my diet. I started talking to nutritionists and discovered a disconnect between the dermatology and the nutrition community regarding nickel food allergies.
