I have had hives (CIU) for almost 4 years. I think initially brought on by stress. I have been on steroids, fenofexadine and now Xolair for the past 2 years injecting myself every 7 weeks. I have been wanting to get control of this condition forever, so I started an elimination diet after reading about how it had helped others. My injection was due 5 weeks ago and I am still managing without it. I get small itchy bumps in the evening but nothing i cant cope with. I have started introducing new foods and so far so good. Ive eliminated all processed sugar and dairy/wheat though. Ive lost over a stone and feeling really positive. When i first started the diet I had severe hives but over the weeks they have gradually gone. I eat super healthy now and Im sticking with it if it means I can stay off the injections.
