Extreme food allergies

KING 5's Jean Enersen reports

Millions of Americans suffer from food allergies, but one teen is allergic to food in general.

From a very young age, Alex Visker was allergic to peanuts, but as the years passed, the allergies got worse.

After years of testing and searching for answers, it turns out Visker is allergic to food.

The family kitchen is stocked, but every single item could make him violently ill.

Doctors believe Alex may have a form of what's called "mast cell activation disorder."

Now, Visker can only eat hypoallergenic powdered nutrients, but he refuses to let his condition stop him from enjoying the taste of living.

"One thing that's helped me is serving others," he said. "You kind of lose yourself in that."
