Hi, i have been told by my GP to avoid nuts altogether. Im really missing them, more than alcohol or anything, im craving them every day. Did your GP's tell you the same thing?

According to the book I got in the hospital yesterday you only have to avaiod them if there is a family history of nut allergy sayign that I'm not a doctor and maybe you should ring your gynae?

My GP actually told me they were fine to eat, but I know alot of girls gp's told them not to eat them so have had them once or twice. There are no nut allergies on either family side. lucy

Not a word was said to me about anything to avoid come to think of it...its only peanuts anyway I think,believe it or not nut traces are in most of the things you eat anyway

My mam was told it was ok to eat them when she was having me. She craved peanuts and maxi twist ice cream. Don't know if it's a coincidence but I have asthma, hayfever and excema (sp). I'm avoiding nuts just in case. Don't want my little fella to have a nut allergy or asthma.

I love the Planters salt and vinegar nuts in the crispy coating (like hot nuts but cold), maybe i could just eat the coating, like MD said there are nut traces in most everything.

it is just peanuts as far as i am aware. dic told my fsil recently that hayfever asthma and exema are all in a traingle and if you have one you will most likely have all 3. i know i have all 3

I heard to avoid peanuts if you have any allergies in your family. We don't have any allergies but I haven't been eating peanuts anyway, but I do eat brazil nuts and walnuts, they are packed with omega3 and other good stuff ! So I don't think there is a need to avoid nuts altogether....

Beanies, thats mad that makes sense now, my nephew has ezcema, hayfever and asthma, only got the hayfever in last few weeks. LL - i might avoid the peanuts, but i love brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, etc.
