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...

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.

Dear Dr. my son has severe cow milk allergy and we live in Kuwait. Is this allergy supposed to disappear or the symptoms alleviate by age. He is now three years and half and was diagnosed as milk allergy when he was 6 months old.

Re: New Epinephrine Study Shows Alarming Results

Kathy P ·
Hi Aboreem1969 - welcome to KFA! There is no absolute time line for outgrowing a food allergy (not reacting anymore). How has your son's allergy been monitored? Has he been tested periodically to see if the numbers are decreasing? Has he eaten anything with milk recently and still showing reactions?

Re: New Epinephrine Study Shows Alarming Results

Wendy Mains ·
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...

I was complacent. My 14 year old daughter was complacent. Eye-rolls and annoyed posture every time I asked if she had her epi-pen. She doesn't remember her reaction when she was 2.75 years old and there have been many, many expired epi-pens since. I used to say it was the best money I ever threw away. Until this year, I got annoyed. I was certain I had sent in an epi-pen in the fall for school. The nurse sent an email to all delinquent parents of food allergic kids. "Your child's epi-pen is...

My son, wearing his EpiPen pouch above, carries his Epi everywhere, every time. He just turned 8 y/o and hasn't had a reaction in years... at least 5 years. His first was at almost 14 months old... Daddy gave him a Ritz Bitz PB Sandwich Cracker and he reacted... at the ER, they told us he is probably allergic to peanuts and to make that appointment with the allergist. We did and at 14 months old, he was diagnosed with an anaphylatic peanut allergy. Even though I used to be a nurse, I...

I'm shocked, but not surprised as I know several people who don't carry the epi pens with them for their kids. I don't understand what good the epi will do if its at home and you are out. I feel as if my DDs medication bag is an extension of her. Wherever she goes, it goes. When she was first diagnosed several years back, there were 2 occasions I left it home. I turned right around to get it. To me, that is her lifeline. NOTHING is more important! I am equally as shocked with people whose...
