Re: Food Allergy Awareness: Does Exposure to Food Allergens Affect Outgrowing?

Heddi ·
Thanks for providing this information. By the way, the link you've shared appears to be incorrect. I found the guideline listed above in: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy in the United States: Summary of the NIAID-sponsored Expert Panel Report (p. 9, 3.7).

Hi Heddi, thanks for posting the link to the expert panel report. That is the report published in the clinical literature ( Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology ), which is the primary resource on this topic written for the clinician. The link we posted above is the NIH publication that is based on the Expert Panel Report and is written in plain language for patients, families and caregivers. Both are accurate references for the NIH Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food ...

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: Spreading Food Allergy Awareness One Teal Pumpkin at a Time

Allison ·
Hi RW! Some people keep the cost down by ordering bulk non-food treats online, or by giving kids a choice and asking, especially if the parents are nearby. Have you also seen this year's post on craft ideas ... You could also bake a fun safe-for-you cake . My preteen just likes being with his friends, for the most part. I like the idea of donating extra candy to volunteers in your town. Some dentists have always collected it in exchange for something...

Re: My First Day of School with Food Allergies

I have the app on iPhone, but I think it is the same for iPad. Using our iOS app, you click CLIPS. Then select the Clip Set (My First Day of School). At the top right is a + sign. Click that to add your photo. At that poi nt, you can either Take a Photo or Browse Your Photos. I clicked Browse. It opened up my camera roll and then I selected the photo I wanted to add. Now for those using mobile access (e.g. using your phone's browser), you will need to log in first before you can add a clip.

Comment

Re: Food Allergy Awareness: Warnings on Food Labels Are Voluntary

Lynda ·
Are you referring to products that "may contain" traces of the top 8 food allergens due to shared equipment issues? The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) that went into effect in 2006 does not require manufacturers to list common allergenic ingredients resulting from shared equipment and cross contamination issues. It still remains the responsibility of consumers to read labels carefully and call manufacturers to be sure that each food is safe for their unique...
