Thanks for sharing your story Cynthia! Your strength and ability to search for answers makes you a supermom as well as a great resource to KFA and its constituents !! With respect to food allergies, knowledge is power, but also it can be life saving. Kate must be proud to have you as you are to have her! Awesome .
Kate is SUPER grateful for KFA ... it means that she gets to live a "normal" life without me freaking out all the time. I can't tell you the times that I've raced to the Kids With Food Allergies' online support community to ask a question: "Okay, this happened, so what do I do NOW?" I've never felt alone in this battle since that first post to KFA.
It must be clarified that OIT is not a cure. It is changing the disease state. IgE is naturally involved in helminth defense (worm infections). A "low intensity" worm infection is IgE dominated. This is equivalent to food allergy. A "high intensity" worm infection is IgG4 dominated (high IgG4/IgE) ratio. This is equivalent to a person with food allergy who has received OIT. In food allergy, your immune system has been programmed to recognize food items as worms. So continued food allergen...
Omalizumab is manufactured using Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and is therefore contaminated with numerous CHO proteins. It is well documented that patients start developing anti-drug antibodies (ADA) against monoclonal antibody treatments such as omalizumab. This can result in drug ineffectiveness. More worrisome is antibodies created against CHO. It is well known from cancer research that immunization with homologous xenogeneic proteins (injection of animal proteins like CHO, that...
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Steven & Jody! You will remain in my prayers. 🙏🏼 I can’t even begin to imagine..... With tears in my eyes from your story above, I think of our youngrst son who has both food allergies & asthma. Stay strong! And please continue to spread your experience with the world, so we can educate more people on the dangers of asthma & food allergies! Much love to you both ❤️
Thank you Steven & Jody. My heart goes out to you for your loss. There are no words. I wish you the best, and hope you find comfort in helping others by telling your story. It is such a tragedy. Cameron looked like a very sweet and promising young man. Heartfelt wishes for solace.
We have tried the chocolate covered cookie dough that Better Bites makes and it tastes just like cookie dough! It is cookie dough with choc. chips in it and covered with chocolate.Very Yummy! Pricey but a nice treat that is yummy and allergen friendly (check label for ingredients, allergens and if safe you you). I haven't seen the birthday do bites ones yet. They do make a brownie with choc. chips on top and a brownie bite covered with chocolate which are decadently delicious too!
We’ve been purchasing this and other free2be foods since 2018 when the company first hit the market! We love them all. I’ve purchased these several time and since my son is away at college, it’s a perfect treat to put in his care packages and “just because” surprise packages. We love them — even for those of us in our family that are not food allergic!!!
