Allergy Classifications

I need some help finding out information on classifications. My son was just diagnosed with a peanut allergy and I am wanting to find out how severe his allergy is. I was told that he is a Class 1. What is that? How severe is that? I am doing research and am restricting his diet as I research but I have not been able to find anything on classifications.

My daughter had a blood test done and the interpretations were the following:

Allergen-specific IGE interpretation of results:

*ASM CLASS........ASM PCT REF

0 ............. <70 1 ............. 70 - 109 2 ............. 110 - 219 3 ............. 220 - 599 4 ............. 600 - 1999 5 ............. 2000 - 5999 6 ............. >6000 (increasing levels of allergy sensitivity)

Hope this helps. I'm not sure if this is the same testing that your child had.
