I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

The results are in...

Minutes after my last post about our appointment, the doctor called with the blood test results.  He gets bonus points for calling himself -- normally I get a nurse whom I never met trying to explain what she sees on the results sheet.  And unable to answer any question.

Peanuts--she is off the charts and we are advised to stay away.
Other tree nuts -- still questionable, so we are going to avoid.
Milk -- questionable, but we know from our last at-home test she's still allergic
Egg -- questionable, so we are going to do a challenge test and give her egg at the allergist

So, no new information.   But it is good to know where we are at.  I really appreciate the doctor calling and encouraging a challenge test for egg.  So far, the allergists (our daughter's seen four) just close the door and say see you next year.


  1. Good luck with the egg challenge!!! I hope that goes well!

    Also just checking in to see if you've got any new yummy recipes to share at Must Follow Recipes by chance? :)

    Thanks so much for all your help!!


  2. Just curious, what does questionable mean? We had a blood allergy test done on my son which showed peanuts were a 6 and milk, eggs, wheat, corn at a 2. We are seeing an allergist on Thursday.

  3. Because of where the number was a low number, the only true way to know if the allergy is there is through a food challenge test. Check with you allergist to see what they suggest you do to determine if your child has a true allergy. Blood tests can only offer so much information.
