    I know this is not remotely scientific:) but.... just thought a straw poll would be interesting.

    Mine has definitely gone?

    Anybody else?

    No, but then I never had it. I did have Chronic Allergic Rhinitis, but that was sorted out with a short course of nasal steroids and not comeback since. Wife does have HF, and she's low carbing with me and hers is worse.

    My Wife, a long sufferer of hay fever , has literally no symptoms these days after LCHF... Much relieved, and off the continual Medication merry go round :)

    Errr @KevinPotts I think you forgot to add the actual poll with your first post.:) But LCHF has not cured my hayfever, it's the same as ever unfortunately.
