UKnow peanut test
Just had this test performed in the last week...results were what I expected, but I thought maybe, just maybe, he would not have the likeliness of the systemic reaction...but alas, the test says he is definitely at risk for it. Sam had his first ANA reaction at 8 months old, and I have managed to make sure he has never had another one...we have flown on planes with peanuts everywhere, accidentally touched them in the grocery store(followed by panicked mommy washing his hands immediately) I guess I thought he would have has some kind of reaction to those things, but he has not...that's why I did the test...it looks like Sam is one of those kids where its ingestion only...thankfully. I just want the peanut allergy to go away...:(( hopefully some of these newer desensitizing options out there will be good to go for people in the next couple years.....when I am dead and gone, who will protect him?? ( he has non verbal autism, and is now 14...he is not going to talk, we know that now) looks like I will continue to worry all the time when he is out of my sight.
