Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Regarding the MRT and it's usefulness for the treatment of food sensitivities, not food allergies... The absence of a particular type of reference on PubMed does not denote the absence of clinical utility in the treatment of the targeted disease states, especially for newer emerging complementary treatments.The establishment of clinical utility of new complementary treatments usually precedes the appearance of references on Pubmed, often by many years. Dr. Stukus, I will be happy to send you...

I realize your post is from 2012 but in reading the comments trying to find a solution for my daughter's situation, I had to write in the event you were still having issues. Please google PANDAS in regards to your daughter's violent behavior after having Strep throat. There is a direct link. It has been in the news a lot recently. https://www.webmd.com/children...-scary-kids-disorder

Thank you for this very detailed explanation. However, I'm not sure I agree with this statement "if your child can eat a food without developing any symptoms, then they are unlikely to be allergic to that food." My son has tested negative to pretty much every allergy skin prick and blood test - only positive to hazelnuts one time and walnuts another time, both in skin prick tests. He suffered from severe eczema, head to toe, and we were looking for answers. There was no particular food that...

My daughter is now 13 and has always had belly issues. She had skin and RAST testing done as a toddler with no indications of food allergies. At 11 her belly isues worsened and RAST testing was redone with nujmerous positive results. We did skin testing and she was found to be allergic to milk, egg yolk, and fish. She has what you term a Non-IgE mediated reaction. Oncethe foods were fully eliminated from her diet her belly issues went away, she was no longer bloated and felt much better.

Jennifer: AGREED!!! DS was tested low score on WHEAT & SOY both skin test and blood test, we never took it seriously only avoided wheat by itself (wheat bread) and soy by itself (tofu, soybean..etc) but since birth he had eczema and stuffy nose throughout the year. We thought it's more related to seasonal/weather, but his skin problem and congestion issue lasted through summer-winter, hot OR cold seasons; we also thought it's environmental (dust mite) so we changed to special pillows/...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Hi MulanMommy - It's incredible what food can do to the body - good or bad. In our son's case, he now has severe reactions, borderline anaphylaxis, with dairy, soy, gluten, corn, and tree nuts. He can not even have one bite - or a trace. Still also triggers eczema. He used to be very sensitive to tomatoes, red pepper, and cantelope, but now that his eczema is under control, he can eat these things every few days, but as you said, never more than two days in a row. The same with coconut. So...

Any thoughts or direction on behavioral issues due to food? My now 6 year old daughter never had any stomach issues, eczema, or anything else, but she became absolutely uncontrollable (threatening to kill me, punching, kicking)after a strep infection back in February. I figured something had to have happened and had the doctor do all the gluten related bloodwork since it was just not her and her oldest brother is GFCF. Sure enough, it came back positive. The allergist put her on an...

I really wish that schools would do away with food related parties. I am not a FA parent but I do not want my child eating most of the prepared allergy friendly food because they mostly contain food coloring, additives, preservatives and GMOs that are poisonous to all kids and that are not a part of my family's diet.

Re: The AllergyEats 2014 List of Most Allergy-Friendly Restaurant Chains

When it is time to retest her allergies, her parents pick 6-8 possible allergens to test at that time. They are testing through blood tests once or twice a year. What gets tested depends on what she has been eating and what symptoms she has been having. So, when something has not been tested at one particular time, they continue to assume an active allergy based on prior testing and continue to avoid that food. Some foods are tested more frequently than others (e.g., dairy is tested most...
