Hi, I just called the allergy clinic and am waiting for a call back regarding testing my other two children. While I was on the phone with the nurse, I asked her about my son's numbers from the blood test. She said he was 84.2% and that 50-100% is considered strong for peanuts. Anyone else know anything about this?? Does that make sense?

I have zero idea what that means.
Blood work (RAST) usually goes from <.35 to >100 (and ranges from class 1 to class 6)
Dunno waht type of test (RAST?) you had...

It was a RAST test. I know because that is what the Dr. said.
I am going in there the week after next. Bringing the twins in too to get tested, I will cross my fingers about that one. When I go in, I'll ask her. I probably misunderstood her or something.
