My sons peanut allergy went from .062 to 21
My son had IGE in 2007. His count was 430. Had one done this week. He just turned 14. His count was 540. His peanut allergy was .062 in 2007 and now it is 21. He rarely eats nuts, can't think of the last time he has but sure he has. My husband says he's eaten the peanuts at 5 guys.
Wondering if I should be concerned by a 21
Not .021 but a solid 21
The doctor referred us to an allergist. I called today and left message to get appointment.
The doctors office also called in an EPI pen prescription.
Just very confused by the high number.
I googled and saw several studies where the blood and skin tests can be false.
Hospitals are doing eating tests etc.
just wanting your thought. Is 21 really high? I mean its high not a 1,2 or 3 but he's 14 and been around people that eat nuts, I can't remember him eating nuts in a long time. Use to love just peanut butter no jelly sandwich. He stopped eating them couple years ago on his own, no reaction just decided he didn't want to eat them. He's very picky eater 5 foot 7 and just 100 pounds. Maybe being so picky has saved him. He's not much of a sweet eater. Vanilla shakes only.
Just has happened last 2 days and kinda thrown e for a loop. I don't want to over react but take seriously if I should.
