Dear Friends, We are excited to introduce the Kids with Food Allergies Foundation, Medical Advisory Team and our new blog. Our team is a voluntary, multidisciplinary group of food allergy educators and advocates who are here...
Sounds great My youngest sons peanut rasts have gone down in the last year from 2.09 to .95 (he is 12).He has had ana type reactions to them 4 years ago now, tingling throat, metallic taste in mouth, throat swelling which lead to a choking cough, and mucous, as well as similar reactions to almonds, some more recently as last year to these, but he passed an IOFC for almonds at the end of last year after rasts went from .59 to .39.We have avoided all nuts until just recently and now he has...
Thanks for the post and I'm looking forward to the content from medical professionals in the field. I'm confused as to where we would find this blog? Is this a link that I would bookmark or can I ask to be notified when new blog posts are made?
Hi Tommom: on the upper right side of the Medical Advisory Team Blog Collection page, there is a link you can click on that says "watch this blog." If you watch this blog, you will receive all new posts and comments.
For all of our readers: this Medical Advisory Team blog will be here to discuss general issues, mainly food allergy management, and replies and comments from the Medical Advisory Team will generally be posted within a week. This initial post is to gather your ideas for topics you'd like the MAT to address over the next year. Thanks!
I'm interested in when some of these medical advances, especially desensitization, will become more available to families? Meaning, when will they become mainstream enough to be conducted in cities other than where the major research hospitals are located?
Im interested in why a rast test score can go up then back down and then back up again. In all my research its my understanding that the rast test goes to the highest peak and then comes down. I have not been able to find any literature on a rast test going up and down up and down.
Hi & thanks. I appreciate the help you offer & I need all the help I can get when dealing with the education department. This week I am taking my children out of school to begin home schooling. I have persisted for some time to educate them on my daughters life threatening allergies and I have finally had enough! The key is education but when you can't educate the education system what do you do? Awaiting your feedback. Jude
Hi! My grandson has anaphylaxis to eggs, nuts, has asthma, allergic to cats, dogs, specific trees, raw apples, grass and more. He wears a mask when he goes outside most of the time, and this I am sure is part of the reason he has been better. I have two questions. 1)I would like to know what research is being done to assist in completely eliminating food allergies. 2) Why do kids have food allergies?...In layman's terms...Not the IGg or whatever it is called type of information, but...
Hi, My son has many food allergies and his diet is very limited because of it. We just found out that he is hypoglycemic and we were told it is from his very restricted diet. He now has to test his blood sugars in the morning since he collapsed from his sugar levels being dangerously low. I would like any information about hypoglycmia and is he now considered a diabetic? Is this something he will have the rest of his life or grow out of it? Any and all information would be appreciated.
Big Momma! If the doctors haven't already recommended it, I suggest making an appt with a Registered Dietician. Try to find one that has experience working with limited diets, they will be more useful to your particular situation. It's useful to keep a food log before your appt so the RD can evaluate the diet and see if there are any nutritional holes and help you make sure all nutrutional needs are being met. We can also help you in our Food & Cooking Forum . Many of us have dealt with...
My 9 year old girl is allergic to multiple foods , including soy , milk , oats , flour , milk , beans , pork , glutten , casein , coconut , onions , among others . Symptoms include itching , throat , esophagus and tongue . Apart from gastrointestinal problems , from chronic esophagitis to stomach ulcers . Your allergies increase since if consume the same food for long period creates allergies to it. No treatment has taken effect as a mother and I 'm desperate .

i have been told my daughter has fpies by one and mpies by another i have been reading up on both and they are similar. i don't know what to do. when she has an episode it takes a week to two weeks for her to flush it out of her own system.when we lived in alabama the hospitals would give her a bag of fluids and then she would be fine but now the docters don't listen to me.they say it isnt healthy to give fluids if she doesnt need it..what can i do to help her flush it faster.
Welcome! I don't deal specifically with FPIES, so I'd like to point you to our FPIES section where you're question will get more eyes http://community.kidswithfooda...pies-and-gerd-reflux I also flagged people to help you out. I'm sorry you're going through that!

Way to go! We've got a discussion going on about " What do people say when you tell them your family manages food allergies? " on the forums. What ideas would you share with other members? How have you juggled a busy soccer practice schedule and food allergies?
