Je suis allergique aux fruits secs


Explanation:
Nuts can be several things : peanuts, hazelnuts etc.
Fruits secs is nuts but it can also be dried fruit such as raisins.
I would either say fruits secs or be more specific. Peanuts and hazelnuts cause most allergies.

problematic


Explanation:
because there is no equivalent generic term in French. I therefore think it's misleading to say just noix noisettes etc.

You might, however, want to say cacahuètes, noix, noisettes, amandes or something like that.

Une autre piste "je suis allergique aux idiots" ?


Explanation:
Le contexte est nécessaire; il me semble que "nuts" signifie aussi "idiot" en langage familier (slang ?) donc hors la traduction "alimentaire"; il me semble aussi possible d'envisager - selon contexte - une traduction du type "je suis allergique aux idiots"
