If you’ve tested allergic to egg whites, but are hoping to do the MEVY (meat, eggs, vegetables, yogurt) diet, I would have a few questions. I would want to know if you tested positive for any other allergies. Also, how high was the antibody titer? Was it a 1+? Was it a 2+? Was it a 4 or 5+ antibody response?
It’s also important to know if you demonstrated an IgE or IgG response. Is it a delayed response, IgG? Or immediate, IgE? I find the IgE responses to be harder to shift, in many people, than the IgG.
In any case, you need to avoid eggs for a considerable period, probably three to six months, while you work on rebuilding the gut. The goal is to let the beneficial bacteria repopulate your gut.
An egg allergy can result in skin rashes. I’ve also seen it cause behavioral issues, joint pain, and muscle pain.

The higher the antibody counts, the more scrupulous you must be about avoiding egg. In those cases, you even need to avoid foods that say “may contain traces of egg.” It’s also best to avoid cooking food in a pan that was used for cooking egg unless the pan has been thoroughly cleaned. With lower antibody counts, you don’t need to be quite as cautious.
After about six months treating your gut, do a retest, and see if your egg allergy is still there. Hopefully, your antibody count will have dropped off. With any luck, you should be able to put egg back into your diet here or there.
