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.

oh I would have never thought about that reason for not eating tree nuts, thanks for that info. I think I'm going to start writing down questions also. There is just so much I don't know about this. I bet that was very scary for you the day he had a reaction. Glad he was ok ;) Thanks so much for responding.... I thought I had put it in wrong or something because nobody had responded. I'm new to this site so I don't know the in's and out's yet. Thank you, Thank you for the website for snacks....lol. I have been wondering what in this world am I going to be able to give him. Good luck to you too, hope your visit goes great!!!!
