Re: Replacing Lost Nutrients Due to Food Allergies

pates88 ·
Does "smaller" refer to height, weight, or both? I'm wondering how much of the size difference has to do with nutritional deficiencies vs. an overall awareness of our diets. Because we read every label, every time, we notice not only allergen-containing foods, but also artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners. Our kids eat a lot less junk food than average American kids, and we eat out a lot less too (restaurant food tends to be higher in fat and sodium than home-cooked food). That...

My son ate cashews by the handful with absolutely no reaction and then went into anaphylactic shock after eating one. How does that fit into this? This stated that if you can eat something without reaction you aren't allergic. He reacted to walnuts which now that we've had testing are still high but lower than both peanuts and cashews.

Re: Food Allergy Test: What Does It Mean?

Missy24, sorry to hear that your son had a severe reaction to cashew. Unfortunately you can develop allergies at any time, so in his case he was not allergic before but then became allergic. The article is referring to testing positive to a food but being able to eat it without reaction. Some docs will run a panel to whole list of foods, even if the patient has only reacted to one. This can lead to avoiding more foods than is necessary as there is a high chance of false positives with...

We often mess up between food allergy and food intolerance. Food allergy usually comes on suddenly. Even a small amount of food can trigger an allergic reaction. Food allergy appens every time you eat that particular foo and can be life-threatening too. On the other hand, food intolerance generally comes on graduall and occurs when you eat a lot of that particular food. It is not life-threatening

Hi, Lune! Since you're having symptoms when you eat food, I agree with Jen -- a board certified food allergist is definitely someone to consult.

Re: Milk Allergy Alert: NuGO Bars

I had an anaphalactic reaction after eating one of these bars for breakfast last year. I lost consciousness while on the phone to my mother and was taken to the ER via ambulance after she called a neighbor. I assumed it was something else I must have come into contact with (although it was the only thing I had eaten that morning). I stupidly continued to eat the bars, getting sick every time (although not as bad). I thought it must have been one of the other ingredients, since it was milk...

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...

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...

Re: 3 Tricks to Managing Food Allergies at Halloween

Since so many Halloween candies contain allergens for my children we've started a new family tradition for the holiday. Rather than handing out any candy or treats to the 200 or so kids who come to our neighborhood we leave our house and have a nice night out. Our kids can choose a restaurant then we go to a movie.

As a mom of a food-allergic kid, Halloween is very difficult for us. Especially now, as she's getting older and in school with other kids that like and enjoy the candy aspect of Halloween. On Halloween night, we choose to hand out food-related treats. This year, we're handing out glow-in-the-dark Halloween tattoos. This way, we show our daughter that it's okay and perfectly acceptable to get something other than candy during trick-or-treating. Also, we have our daughter help us hand out...

Thank you so much for this article. I have a son who is 9 years old and has EOE.

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?

Hello Rosangela I agree with the suggestions made for you to post on the EOS forum. You are not alone and there are many parents in the group who may be able to provide support and share their experiences.

Formulas definitely are useful in meeting nutritional needs as well as giving the...

Hi kally, My son has a very severe milk allergy and we eat at Chipotle 1-2 times per week. I can totally understand your apprehension. Here are some tips: One person handles your food. They will change their gloves first - sometimes you have to remind them but it's coorporate policy AFAIK. I always ask them to hold my son's tray - do not slide it on the counter. We only get rice, beans, and meat from the bar. Any salsa, lettuce or guac comes from the fridge under the bar or the back.

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.

Re: Plane Diverted After Girl's Allergic Reaction Mid-Flight

Here we go....It's the beginning of the end of serving highly allergenic foods on flights. Not only are the passengers put at risk, but the costs the airline had to absorb costly and unnecessary. Just ban the nuts already. We can all be safe and just eat apples or something. Many choices besides foods that have become so dangerous! I hope this unfortunate event can push the airlines to finally take action and avoid this from ever happening ever again!!!

Re: Orange is Not the New Black: Just Highly Allergenic for One Toddler

josephine ·
My son never was able to peel an orange without an allergic reaction, though he could eat it. Years later he can now peel an orange with no problems. He still can't have citrus rind in foods though. He use to react to banana peels but could eat the banana. I wonder if it had anything to do with what sprays they use in the fields. I also find that a lot of orange juice is made on shared equipment with dairy. Sending hugs your way.

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

Bustermonkey ·
That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.
