A fishy question: Can I safely eat fish again?
About two decades ago I broke out into a severe case of hives for about a week. It was not fun. About the only thing that I had done differently shortly before the outbreak that might have been the trigger was that I had eaten some fish at a local restaurant. Nothing else was outside of my normal routine that I can remember.
I had eaten fish before the hives, but I haven't eaten fish since. However, I have tuna as tuna salad several times since without any reaction. Does this mean that all types of fish are safe for me to eat? Or do different fish have different oils or compounds which might account for the reaction to one kind, but not to the tuna?
I ask because I want to return fish to my diet to improve my health and drop some weight (and raise my levels of good cholesterol, which is low) (bad cholesterol levels are okay).
Thank you for any help and suggestions.
