What qualifies as severely allergic? Hi everyone, I
What qualifies as severely allergic?
Hi everyone, I see people write on here that they have a severe peanut allergy. My son's doc always avoids answering the question of how severe his reaction is and says you can't really tell. So, those of you that say you have severe allergy, are you able to say that just from previous outbreaks or has your doc given you a way to quantify to tell?
My son is nearly 3 yrs old and was diagnosed at 1 and a half years old. We just had the component testing done he was sensitive to H1 with a value of .49 and H2 with a value of 3.61. I see that these values on the chart measure on the high positive scale. Does this mean he is moderate since it isn't the high positive or can you not quantify it that way? Is the only way just by telling if he has been anaphylactic? Any help or discussion would be appreciated!
