In Response To: Re: Test for agglutination (Sandra Mc)
Tomatoes contain panhemaglutinins. All I can think of is to try the little home test Joan used, using fresh tomato juice instead of wheat. If it shows positive agglutination against the control, then the picture can be worth my thousand words! ;-}
One way or the other, it's up to your daughter. In my humble un-medical opinion, if I were type A I think I'd rather take my chances with some of the other avoids, and skip the nightshades. The effects take a long time to show up, and you wouldn't necessarily experience any sensations of irritation or discomfort if you weren't actively allergic to them. But then, I have a wide range of foods available to me.
Good luck! Here's the link to our homely efforts!
