I'm trying to learn all I can since my 18mnth old was just diagnosed with a cat. 4 peanut allergy last month.
Few questions if anyone could help:
-Is it ok for him to eat peas, beans, and other legumes?
-Is a legume allergy something that kids with PA are usually allergic to also? (He has an appt next month with a pediatric allergist that said they would check for more things. Just wondering if I should wait until then.)
-Should he stay away from things with sunflower oil?The other treenuts on his bloodwork were 0. So the only thing was PA. I was told to watch treenuts also because he could become allergic to them as well.
-What if it says soy or soybeans? Even if it just says "may contain soy"?
-What test is best to check for multiple things?
Sorry for all the questions!! Our life has been completely turned upside down, as you all have already experienced.
