From this study (1 week ago):
I have been taking Humira for 6-1/2 months. All of a sudden about a month ago I developed a new Type 2 Allergic reaction to Bananas. I always ate bananas. It is a latex like reaction after ingesting from what I read on the internet. I have not been feeling well and do not eat often because I don't feel good after. Well, I ate 1/3rd of a steak sub for lunch and within minutes, my lips are swelling, my thumbs are swelling and I am itching like crazy.
