Re: FDA Grants Breakthrough Therapy Designation for Xolair (Omalizumab) for Food Allergies

Hi; DD is fragile atopic; the idiopathic uticatia dx was used to fast track xolair approval. Long story, involving immune dysfunction and NIH, but she’s on cell cept now and feeling better. That would not typically be a path for a fa kid.

Yes, I know your hamburger buns, crackers, cereal, etc do not contain pieces of peanuts that are visible to the naked eye, so please don't roll your eyes at me when I ask if there is a label I can read or if I can speak with a restaurant manager about possible cross-contamination. That and other parents please learn to read food labels! Again, if the allergen is not visible it might still be there hence the "processed on the same equipment" or "processed in the same facility" "or may contain...

Re: Spreading Food Allergy Awareness One Teal Pumpkin at a Time

RW ·
What are some other ways people deal with Halloween? I don't think this teal thing should stop by any means, but I am having a hard time seeing it as a widely accepted solution. I have a peanut/treenut allergic kid and I have very mixed emotions... On the one hand, I like the added awareness, but on the other hand... I think this might be expecting too much . In our town, some neighborhoods get hundreds of kids and per item non-food stuff can get expensive. Plus, I really don't want my...

Re: 22 Things We Wish You Could Understand About Food Allergies

aboreem1969 ·
my son has milk allergy and I find it very difficult to think now about joining kindergarten. The problem is that allergy is very high -even the around smell of cheese can cause big allergy. I am living in Kuwait and awareness in schools is still low. Is there new promising ways to treat? Thanks
Comment

Re: 22 Things We Wish You Could Understand About Food Allergies

Kathy P ·
Hi aboreem1969 - it is definitely scary to send them off to school. It sounds like your son reacts to airborne proteins which makes it even more challenging. There are a number of treatment options being researched. I don't know of anything new specifically geared toward milk - many are for peanut, but they have not branched out to other allergens.

We have to read labels. It's not just a matter of whether it visible contains nuts (or has visible sesame seeds, etc.). Trace amounts from the same equipment are enough to kill.
Comment

Re: 22 Things We Wish You Could Understand About Food Allergies

briheller ·
Don't be offended if you said you read the label and we ask to see it anyway. Unless you've been an allergy parent for years, you'd be surprised how confusing allergy disclosures can be. For example, for some allergens, they might be listed under pseudonyms or scientific names that you might not recognize.

Sorry for the plug, but if you have sesame allergies, see this petition to the FDA: https://www.change.org/p/fda-a...ed-on-us-food-labels and more about it here: http://www.cspinet.org/new/201411181.html If you want to send your comments to the FDA directly, you can do so here: http://www.regulations.gov/#!s...FDA-2014-P-2035-0001
