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...

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

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Jennifer Roberge ·
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...

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...

Re: Check Ingredient Statements on Halloween Candy

MACEMama ·
I came across a funky one while going through DS' candy tonight. I knew Tootsie Rolls have milk in them, but I was curiously reading the label while snacking on a lemon flavored one (habit ). Ingredients are: While the condensed skim milk does meet the plain English requirement for FALCPA labeling, the whey in it would not (as it is not clearly listed as "milk."). I wonder if it gets off on the technicality that it has another milk ingredient with the word milk in it.

Re: Replacing Lost Nutrients Due to Food Allergies

Rosangela ·
Thank you so much for this article. I have a son who is 9 years old and has EOE. He's allergic to almost all fruits and vegetables, nuts, barley, soy, corn, potatoes, rye, etc. He does not eat any kind of meats , fish, poultry. He got so tired of rice that now he can't even see it. Now the doctors decided that he should not eat anything that has wheat, milk and eggs on it because they believe that's what is making the disease worse. What should I do? I'm seeing a dietitian and everything she...

We have found our local Applebee' s to be very supportive of our granddaughter's allergies (top 8 plus tomatoes, beans, peas, corn, beef). They cook her a chicken breast in a clean pan w/o oils, steam her fresh veggies from unused previously unopened packages of each veggie, lettuce w/o dressing (sometimes she has her chicken in the salad and we bring some dressing she can have), etc. And, they come check on her frequently to make sure there are no problems.

I was very skeptical of Mexican and Italian restaurants in the beginning. The idea that there was so much cheese in the kitchen made me very nervous. However, I was surprised to learn that many Mexican restaurants don't use much in the way of milk or butter... just lots of cheese. For DS we are almost always able to get him white rice and beans (black or refried - hold the cheese). Occasionally we get him meat, too, but honestly he loves rice and beans so much he prefers them over the meat.

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...

Re: New Epinephrine Study Shows Alarming Results

rose12328 ·
@ Wendy Mains-- I think I know why your child had to use his epi pen so many times in the ER/hospital. Hospitals are FILLED with corn-derived products. I am also corn-allergic. I found out the hard way, after a lifetime (I'm in my 50s!) of migraines, joint pains, spontaneous vomiting seemingly without a cause, I ended up at the big famous institution in Minnesota. The immunologist looked at the results of a basic saliva genetic test that I had purchased and had processed. He said I should...

Re: New Epinephrine Study Shows Alarming Results

Wow Rose, thanks for sharing your story. My kids were both highly sensitive to corn and derivatives when they were little. Both outgrew it by middle school, but it was a real challenge to avoid and many just wouldn't believe where corn hid and that the highly processed stuff could possibly be an issue. Thankfully mine were not anaphylactic.

Thanks. I myself only have eczema, haven't tested myself for food or environmental yet. But my son is the one who suffers. He has eczema, and a severe allergy to peanuts/ tree nuts, and high allergy to wheat, gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, pinto beans, tomatoes, potatoes...and a picky eater on top of all that. And highly allergic to cat/dog dander and dust mites. Very hard to find stuff he can eat, or will eat. Hoping to find some support here. ☺

Re: New Epinephrine Study Shows Alarming Results

As the mother of a son with an anaphylactic alergy to corn I can't stress the importance of carrying the epipen at all times even when food intake is not planned. He has been tested thoroughly and his only allergy is corn so we know if he has a reaction then corn was present and his reaction occurs within seconds. We walked into a small hospital for a pre op appointment and we weren't inside for more than 3 min. and he had his worst reaction ever (the 7th one that year-corn has a nasty habit...
