Aspirin sensitivity, asthma and polyps

Posted by @mayosinus, Oct 24, 2016

For those of you who have Samter’s triad (polyps, asthma, react to aspirin), have you found that things in your diet affect your symptoms? Do you react to certain foods or drinks?

REPLY

I react to a lot of food, for example tomatoes, mustard, a lot of fruit most seasonings and many more

Hello and welcome, @glj86.

I would like to introduce you to @emaria. @emaria, if you care to share, how did you get your AERD diagnosis? @glj86, are the symptoms above that you listed all things you experience?

Hello,

Yes these are all symptoms I have been experiencing at the moment and longer.

So my doctor suggested I go to see a pulmonologist. He said he heard crackles in my lungs and though I might has asthma. The pulmonologist tested me finding I had a high IGE of 500. Nasal polyps, Mild Asthma, Several Allergies and Excem which he said was Samter’s triad.

I have not had been given the AERD diagnosis yet. I have taken aspirin all my life and never had symptoms from it. I have been getting all these random symptoms for a log period no other answers. I am going to get referral to see an Allergist and Immunologist.

My pulmonologist has been no help at this point. That’s why i was wondering if anybody had these symptoms with out the aspirin sensitivities.
