In November my daughter was diagnosed with a peanut allergy. She is my youngest of 4. She is only 11 months old, but my 3 boys are all in school already.
My question is how do you deal with your other kids that don't have food allergies? I'm asking because, Valentines parties are coming up at school. Should I be worried about what treats my boys are eating at school? Should I let their teachers know that their baby sister has a peanut allergy at home? Or will making them wash… read more
I am diagnosed with tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, wheat, corn, soy and egg white allergies. None of them showed up on my skin testing but do with the blood testing IGE response. What kind of symptoms can these allergens be causing? I am diabetic, have PCOS and struggle with depression/anxiety/adhd.
Will an elimination diet help?
My son (12 months) has a documented egg allergy. He has had hives a few times, always from eating or touching scrambled eggs. I did give him baked goods before we knew and he didn't get hives. His allergist said he "probably" can have eggs in baked goods as long as they're baked 350+ for at least 20 minutes.
My question is, how would I know if it was giving him a mild reaction? Just because he didn't get hives doesn't mean his tummy doesn't hurt, right?!
I'm looking for my fiance. He is anaphylactic allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, pea protein and sensitivity to soy. Everytime we find something it has pea protein in it or soy.
Are there any protein shakes that can be recommended?
Thank you so much

My lips are swollen too. I'm on steroid nasal spray and inhaler for the first time and steroids are sending my anxiety through the roof. I was told to see my own doctor on Monday. I have positive tests for milk, eggs and fish but he won't take the… read more
I've tried looking on Pinterest and google but it's hard to find anything that doesn't contain the allergy food. Am I overlooking something?
My older sister says she hates her peanut allergy. What I don't understand is because of people like our Mom the world is safer for people like her. There are so many options for people to live a normal life without having to worry about having a reaction. All it takes is making smart choices.
I refused to go to Las Vegas with just her because I knew I would be babysitting. She would insist on going to buffets where cross contamination is very likely… read more
I have a medical condition that makes it dangerous for me to have any medicine with epinephrine in it. Does anyone else have this problem, and if yes, what do you do about it?
