My daughter has been diagnosis with several allergy to beef. We have taken our deer this year and when processed we had beef fat added to it. I was looking for a place I could go and shoot a couple of hogs. I am a disabled veteran, and have been hunting my entire life. I follow all the rules. I am in Beebe. Thank you for your help……

A friend of mine has the alpha Gau (sp?) allergy caused by tick bite. He cannot eat anything with a hoof. I’m sure you probably know if she can or can’t but if not be sure to check into that. All he can eat is foul or fish. He’s been ordering emu meat and says it’s pretty good. I have no hogs, I hear of any I’d be glad to let you know or bring them to you.

Its "Alpha Gal Syndrome" and I also have a friend that contacted the allergy by a tick bite a few years ago.
It was really hard for him to find a doctor around Arkansas (4-5 years ago) who knew much about it.

It's a very spooky situation for anyone who is in the outdoors !!!!

It has been really tough on him.
The man I know that has "Alpha Gal Syndrome" has loosed over 75 lbs. and is but a shell of the man/outdoorsman he was.

This is a very serious allergy that once contracted you have to deal with for life. The carrier is the lone star tick!!
Anyone who comes into contact with ticks should research this allergy, this man thinks the tick came from in his dog pen.

It's devastating to an outdoor/hunting lifestyle

My youngest son tested positive for Alpha Gal. He would whelp up anytime he ate any mammal meat. However, we found a treatment for it called S.A.A.T and it has drastically improved. Pretty much eats whatever he wants now. It's an accupuncture therapy for allergies. I was the biggest skeptic there is when the wife came up with this but has sure made a difference. We even went back and had some of his other allergies treated with same great results.

My grandmother got alpha gal froma tick sent her into anaphylaxis after eating a steak before she knew she had it. Few months ago she went to a specialist in Missouri an acupuncturist did a needle in the ear that stayed in about a week. Happy to say she is eating steak again no issues. So for everyone talking about it you may have them check into that.

My grandson, now 28, has had that allergy all his life.....to the point of anaphylactic reaction. He can eat deer, which I used to always get one no matter what, just for him. I had to process it myself to ensure no processor used blades that had touched beef. The only red meat he ever ate was venison.

Milk products are in everything. It's more than just a meat issue.

The above tick disease was ruled out on him. It's been a mess, but he's adjusted well.
