Great guide! I like the tips in the right corner, "Take all Food allergies seriously" and "Trace amounts of food can cause a reaction."

Inside the My Life With Food Allergy Report: When Should a Child Receive Epinephrine?

Kids With Food Allergies ·
In August 2019, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) released their My Life With Food Allergy Parent Survey Report. The report highlights the significant social, emotional and financial impact food allergies can have on parents. Our findings also revealed that many children do not receive epinephrine when they are having a severe allergic reaction for many reasons. We asked Dr. Michael Pistiner, pediatric allergist at MassGeneral, to talk about these findings.

Whenever we give egg to our child he vomits.I didnt knew about egg allergy. Initially we thought it is because the child hates egg or may be due other stomach problems.So we didnt often gave egg to him thinking the child may not like it .It was his baby sitter from Wee watch at Ontario made us realize that the child may be suffering from egg allergy.Soon we consulted with a doctor .Great blog!

We are so fortunate to have the author of this article on our son's team at the University of Michigan Food Allergy Clinic. His oral food challenges have been positive experiences for us...have gone just as Nancy explained, and with wonderful follow-up. Our son has passed heated milk, baked egg, and most recently all dairy. On Jan 16, his 10th birthday, he completed his 24 day incremental dairy introduction into his diet after passing his oral challenge in the clinic on December 23. He had...

Re: Demystifying Oral Food Challenges

Jake's mom ·
What I wonder about are those stories that you hear about children dying because they ingested a small amount of an allergen, even after epi pens were used. How can we be sure the first tiny bite will not become our worst nightmare?? My son's allergist has recommended a food challenge but I can not bring myself to do this because of this fear. We would all love to know for sure though if he is allergic to some of these foods, since at this time he is diagnosed with 15 food allergies.

Re: Demystifying Oral Food Challenges

Jen ·
Welcome to posting. . The thing to remember is that these challenges take place in a drs office, under medical supervision. They can catch a possible rxn at the first sign. This is different than those cases of accidental ingestion of a small amount where it may not be initially obvious that a. Any allergen was consumed and/or b. a reaction is occurring. Both of those situations could lead to a delay in giving epinephrine. Another thing to remember is that many cases of anaphylaxis self...

Re: Demystifying Oral Food Challenges

Hi Jake's mom, I've been through a couple of office-based food challenges. And I know what you mean about being hesitant. I took a while before I had the courage to schedule them. Besides what Jen already explained, one additional point is that they start very slowly. They may just touch the food to the lips, for instance. Then wait 15-20 and see what happens. The incrementally go up from there, waiting between doses to see if any reaction occurs. Your allergist may be able to give you some...

Re: Demystifying Oral Food Challenges

They gave me one of these tests to check if had a carrot allergy, and another to test my pepper allergy. I failed both, and ended up in the ER both times because one EpiPen dose couldn't calm down the reaction. They wanted to do more oral tests to make sure my blood tests for the other allergies were accurate, but my mom won't schedule them because she thinks it's too dangerous to try them right now. Any advice on how to talk to her about this?

Re: Demystifying Oral Food Challenges

Kathy P ·
Did they do them slowly starting w/ a small amount of the food? We've only done one here and it failed very early on when the doc dabbed some on my dd's tongue. The challenge was stopped right then. This webinar might have more info about how to decide which challenges might be reasonable.
