I was just diagnosed with alpha gal red meat food

I was just diagnosed with alpha gal red meat food allergy after a tick bite and I'm not entirely sure how i feel about it, Im told it can be as bad as me going into Anaphylactic Shock but all off that from a tick bite? How can one tick cause this much trouble and how bad can it actually get.

I have recently been diagnosed with alpha gal. My Dr. told me to quit eating beef and pork with no known cure or treatment for it . Is there any and where might I go to seek help. You must also know that I am a southerner and enjoy my meats for bbq purposes, smoking a head of cabbage the rest of my life just won t cut it. Appreciate any help that you might be able to give.

The skin around my anus has become itchy...for several weeks. Upon inspecction this evening I noticed that I m losing pigmentation of my skin in that area. I have been diagnosed recently with several other conditions...alopecia areata, hashimoto thyroiditis, and alpha gal. Could any of these be the cause for this? What can be done to get rid of the itchiness? Preparation H and Witch Hazel don t seem to help much.

I get hemorrhoids fairly frequently. I eat a pretty healthy diet with a good amount of fiber and just about all natural foods. However, I have noticed that the hemorrhoids tend to show up the day after I have red meat (maybe once every 7-10 days). Is there a correlation?
