Is tendonitis an allergic reaction?
« on: July 06, 2008, 09:26:30 PM »
My nutrionist said that tendonitis is the result of an allergy to dairy. I really dont want to give up dairy if i dont have too, but am willing to to do anything to get rid of knee pain. Is this just a way for nutrionists to make money and sell supplements? Or is this for real? Anybody heard of this?

Simply put tendonitis is an inflammation of a tendon, generally as a result of repitive microtrauma.  It is not, by any means, an allergic reaction to dairy.  Is your nutitionist registered or licensed?  If they are, I would be inclined to report them to their state board.

Ask your nutritionist to show you a peer-reviewed study to validate their claim, I can almost guarantee that there isn't one.

Ive heard that inflammation is also caused by allergies? I know the swelling from tendonitis is probably more from physical pressure.
