Life with a peanut allergy can be scary; however,I have good news. Our son Alexander has been desensitized to his peanut allergy. It is true! Through the use of Food Oral Immunotherapy,
Alexander was treated in 2011 by Dr. Richard Wasserman.
Five years after its inception, this program continues to be successful with over 190 patients desensitized to various food allergies including milk allergy, egg allergy and tree nut allergy.
I welcome you to my blog, Just A Little Peanut for more information.

Here is an excerpt from the October 7, 2013 issue of the Dallas Allergy Immunology Newsletter
"Have You Heard?
Food Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) is an emerging treatment for food allergy that is offered
at Dallas Food Allergy Center (DFAC)/Dallas Allergy Immunology.
This treatment desensitizes patients to their allergenic food and at the end of treatment
most patients eat the food on a daily basis. We have offered this treatment for over 5 years now
and 190 DFAC patients are now eating their previously allergenic food!
Food OIT is offered for the treatment of peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, and sesame allergy."
In prior posts we have detailed Alexanders treatment and many other topics. We hope our blog is helpful to you.
Peanut desensitization has been a great blessing for our son and our family.
To God be the Glory!
