I have a very minor allergy to shellfish, or so I think. I've eaten it all the time and tiny cuts on my lip from gnawing on it would swell up only slightly. Of course rubbing my eyes would cause it to itch but I never had trouble breathing and the insides of my mouth never itched, swelled, hurt, etc. People say shellfish allergy is PDQ, while some say only if it's real bad. I'm positive it's not. Very recently I ate baby oysters and not even an itch. It's so little not even my doctor knows about it. I don't know if it's up to date but I found this: Code: ke. History of anaphylaxis (995.0). (1) History of anaphylaxis to stinging insects (989.5). A cutaneous only reaction to a stinging insect under the age of 16 DOES meet the standard. Applicants who have been treated for 3-5 years with maintenance venom immunotherapy DO meet the standard. (2) History of systemic allergic reaction to food or food additives (995.60-995.69). Systemic allergic reaction may be defined as a temporally related, systemic, often multi-system, reaction to a specific food. The presence of a food-specific immunoglobulin E antibody without a correlated clinical history DOES meet the standard. (3) Oral allergy syndrome. (4) Hypersensitivity to latex (V15.07). (5) Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (with or without food). (6) Idiopathic anaphylaxis (995.0). (7) Acute, early, or immediate anaphylactic onset. Change 1, 09/13/2011 39 ENCLOSURE 4 What does this mean "The presence of a food-specific immunoglobulin E antibody without a correlated clinical history DOES meet the standard."? Do I even need a waiver? And if so, is it true that I will be denied even for something so little because the Navy doesn't need sailors at the moment? Obstacle after obstacle and this one seems to high to jump.
