Re: New Report Shows Most States Fall Behind on Asthma and Allergy School Policies

Thank you for creating this report and keeping track of how each of the states are working towards supporting our children who have food allergies and asthma. I have added a link to your report on the blogs I am writing on the GreenwichPatch and the NewRochellePatch. My goal is to create more connections and awareness within my community in Westchester, NY for families who live with food allergies.

Re: Celebrating Thanksgiving – Focus on the Day, Not on the Food

Robyn Pollock Peterson ·
Good Morning! I'm a Mom of 2, ages 3.5 and 18 months. In our household we have an anaphylactic dairy allergy and a corn allergy. I am the one with the anaphylaxis and I've lived WELL with this allergy all my life. I'd just like to say that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and if there is extended family and friends who will cooperate with your food allergies, you can have a safe and delicious Thanksgiving. It's about trust... and about education... and possibly about providing recipes and...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Kids With Food Allergies ·
We're going to invite Dr. Stukus to reply to some of the questions here. He won't be able to give you medical advice, of course, but he may be able to give out general information about the issues you have brought up. Eczema is a tough one to explain. I will defer that one to Dr. Stukus. Regarding the MRT post, I want to take issue with your last point. One is that if RAST or skin tests are negative a child could still have an immune-mediated non-IgE mediated food allergy as is explained in...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

KFA Medical Advisors ·
I'd like to thank everyone for posting such wonderful comments. I'd like to address two topics that were mentioned so far: 1. Eczema and food allergies can be a very difficult and complicated topic, which may need it's own blog post in the future. While I can't give out specific medical advice in this forum, I am happy to help elaborate a bit more. In general , the majority of children with eczema do not have an external cause of their skin condition. Eczema is a genetic, chronic, skin...

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Lynda ·
I would say that EE and testing is another complicated topic best addressed with its own blog post in the future and the issue of behavioral reactions to foods is another one outside the scope of what this blog post was intended to cover. Both would best be addressed in a future blog post as well. Thanks for your suggestions!

Maggie - I would say discussion about egg free flu shots is outside the scope of this particular blog post - but I can tell you we will be doing a blog post in the near future about egg allergy and flu vaccine, so that should provide some more insight on this issue. Stay tuned! Deidre - negative test results are usually accurate, but in a small percentage of cases, children can react with negative test results. That is why it's important to get evaluated by an allergist, since they are most...

Are you still seeing issues with just avoiding peanut?? Have you seen our recent blog post from our Medical Advisory Team regarding the current recommendations on whether to feed or avoid allergenic foods in babies/toddlers?? Also, testing alone shouldn't be used to diagnose food allergies.

Re: New Food Find: Milk and Soy Free Cheese Wedges by Daiya

Hi Tricia, Welcome. I can see why you are so concerned. My first thought is to call the company and inquire about their product and manufacturing practices. It could be that the product was made on equipment shared with other products containing peanuts, but you will not know unless you ask. Shared equipment issues and advisory labeling do not have to be stated on the label - it's not a requirement of the current labeling laws in the U.S. Since you are new to Kids With Food Allergies...
