I have been reading a lot about how various foods can affect asthma and wondered whether anyone has had any success with an exclusion diet, in controlling symptoms? I know this is very individual but I am willing to try anything and am considering excluding wheat and dairy and seeing whether it helps, as these are meant to be the most common food triggers for people. I've got a book which gives information about how to do this.
I asked the asthma clinic to do skin prick tests but they said no. They don't do foods only common airborne allergens, which I am getting done next time I go.
Has anyone ever excluded foods and found that it helps?
Is it worth getting skin prick tests for food allergies/intolerances privately?
I also don't know how it's possible to identify because there seem to be so many other potential triggers (environmental ones)
