When my daughter was diagnosed with a peanut allergy the allergist just said "yep she's allergic to peanuts, eggs, milk and soy" "Definately keep her away from all peanuts" Now at that point I didn't know much about the allergy, just that it was deadly. When we went back to her regular pediatrician I knew a little more about the allergy and asked him what she scored on the RAST test. He told me that it was irrelevant and that I should just keep her away from all nuts. So I never did find out what she scored on this test, he was not interested in telling me either.... Does every person receive a number? I kind of just left it at that and never pursued it. Now I'm curious... How important are the numbers? Are they really irrelevant like this doctor said? I feel kinda stupid, a year later, asking this question but I've been reading a lot of things about scores in here and it's got me thinking? Thanks
