cathlina, I do agree with you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
My Mother developed environmental allergies at the age of 72. She will be 76 this month.
It's not like she went merrily through her life with environmental allergies and didn't know she had them because both my sister and I got allergy shots as children. So, she was aware of them, definitely. But they didn't show up in her until she was 72.
I believe genetics do play a part in what's going on, but not the FULL part. I also believe it has a lot to do with what we (collectively) have done to our environment and how now our bodies really just can't tolerate the environment we have created, full of toxins, pollution and everything else.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Going Nuts, this is true, has been since time began, so what the heck? I'm quite prepared to send my children into therapy when the time comes. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

My 4 year old son is PN and TN allergic. My sister's 2 year old son is also Peanut allergic.
My sister is allergic to green peppers and I do not have any food allergies. Our mother is allergic to blueberries.

I have a niece and nephew ( brother and sister) who are both PA and have asthma. DS is PA/TNA and has had asthmatic-like reactions- but our family Dr. won't test him. Looking for a new ped. or dr. - but not many are taking new patients here. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

NO just Chris in our whole family. He gets the royal treatment from My side so he thinks he is the king of the family. Gramma will see him coming and make him anything he wants to eat.
She is always preparing treats for "Just chris". It is a joke though. He loves her Lemon Pie so she makes it for him all the time.
Of course the others have their favorites from gramma.
Now my brother is allergic to shell fish. my other is allergic to bees the same as Chris is to Peanut. take care CLaire

My older son is PA, and his second cousin (my husband's first cousin's daughter) was also diagnosed with PA about 2 years back. She just turned 6 and they are doing extensive retesting because the allergist believes she has outgrown it.
As for my son - I am not holding my breathe for him to outgrow it because his skin prick test results are worse every year.
To tell you the truth, I'm a little jealous that my husband's cousin's daughter has outgrown it, and a little concerned that the rest of my family will think my son's PA isn't that bad after all - since she outgrew it, he will too so why bother being diligent... BUT, then again I am always overly dramatic [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] and of course I obviously have a pretty vivid green streak as well [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Take care!
