Hi All,

I was just curious as to what age you were when you had your first reaction.

My SIL had her first reaction at 27 and I can just imagine how her world changed after eating peanuts/peanut products her entire life until then.

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Connie,
I was 2 and a half years old when I had my first reaction after taking a bite of my mother's peanut butter sandwich at lunch time.
* sorry Connie - I seem to be a thread-stopper again * hehe

27 years old. This is also when my gallbladder went haywire and I had lots of digestive problems. I read somewhere that your liver has a lot to do with allergies.

I was 20. It was no good. Had to give up my favourite summertime meal - Kelloggs Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.

I was 23 when I developed my TNA/PA. It started when I was really stressed out, and my liver and gallbladder were sick. I was having digestive problems at the time I developed my allergies.

Thank you all for your replies to this thread.
The idea for this thread came to me in another thread and I was just interested in how old you were when you first reacted to peanuts/peanut products.
I am very much interested in the adults living with peanut allergy. You all provide such insight to those of us who have children living with peanut allergy and I have learned so much from you already by reading your posts here and how *you* deal with this day to day.
You also help keep me grounded, if you will, on how I deal with my son's allergy and in retrospect, teach him to deal and live with it as well.
Thanks again for your replies! I really appreciate them. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
P.S. erik, I have never known you to be a *thread stopper* [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hi Connie,
I am usually not a thread stopper, but in this case I was the first person to reply to you, and 4 hours went by before anyone else replied, so I thought maybe I was a thread stopper! :P
I am glad that I was wrong in this case. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
