YIPEE!!! Even though he was ana. to dairy in the past, even though he ate goat's milk products when he was younger because we had an ill-informed allergist at the time, even though his numbers were higher his last RAST test, even though his number was 1.01 (which I think is class 2), HE PASSED!!!!

I was VERY worried about this challenge due to all the above. I was allergic to dairy until I was a teenage and our family is Native American, which are natorious for DA. But our allergist was convincing and DS himself said he was ready to try it.

I just wanted to let everyone know there's hope!!

Great news! You must be so excited. IMO dairy is one of the toughest to avoid.
Congratulations to you and your DS.
Just curious, does that mean you will start feeding him ice cream and cheese etc. right away or is there a more gradual way to introduce things into his diet? Thinking along those lines for when my DD outgrows her dairy allergy (hows that for positive thinking?) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Yes, dairy was hard to avoid. Wheat/gluten was harder, though!
It's interesting. He did pass, but they advised us to go slow with introducing new foods with dairy. They said that he could become slightly lactose intolerant if we gave too much too quickly. This has been VERY difficult because he wants to try EVERYTHING and eat as much as he pleases. He has been caught sneeking dairy foods when we aren't looking. He also has started getting more phlem and coughing a little bit. But hey, it's worth it. It's been WONDEFUL watching him try his first bite of "real" pizza, Cheetoes, etc. It's been fun!
