Hello everyone, I am a mother of two children. 8 year old son and a 11-year-old daughter. My daughter has anaphylaxis to peanuts and tree nuts through touch and ingestion. We found out when she was 2 1/2 first and only reaction. She is also allergic to sesame seeds, animals, dust mites, grass and trees. She has recently outgrown shellfish. This is a great website!

What part of Michigan are you in? I'm in the southeastern part (County-Wayne) Yes I am very pleased with our allergist. He is very involved and helpful especially with food allergies. [url="http://www.med.umich.edu/foodallergy/"]http://www.med.umich.edu/foodallergy/[/url]

This is from his bio: [url="http://www.med.umich.edu/foodallergy/about/bios.htm"]http://www.med.umich.edu/foodallergy/about/bios.htm[/url] He has been recognized as one of the University of Michigan Health System

We are in central Michigan between Midland and Mt. Pleasant. You are lucky to have such a good allergist. I don't really care for my PA DS's allergist but around here there really aren't many to choose from.

Hi nonutfamily!

My dd is also PA and TNA. She is 12 now. So we are learning how to work out overnight class field trips, a variety of parties and other fun things! Different challenges sometimes then are faced with the little ones, but always on our radar screen!

Happy reading!
