Thanks Joey. I think I understand too. The only thing that my allergist could tell us about the preservatives and additives is that those are sensitivities, not true allergies. And my daughter did test positive for a peanut allergy. There is no testing (currently) available for preservative and additive sensitivies. He told us in order to figure those out for my daughter, it would be a lot of "detective" work. Admittedly, my daughter did not wield a 10mm flare on her skin test for peanut(that was more her egg!) but she was diagnosed as a class 3. I don't know if that helps? Anyway, thanks for your response.

KathyM:
Welcome!
If you get a minute, please go to the Off Topic section of the boards and look for the NonVerbal Learning Disability (NVLD) thread. It's long, but the first couple pages should be enough for you to decide if your child fits into a similar situation. Many of us here have kids with sensory issues, speech problems, and the like. I hope you'll check it out. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I have a friend whose child does not have food allergies, but sensory problems and was given diagnosis of ADD last year.
He is a great kid, my friend has done a lot to help him. It will be okay. She said once she understood the sensory issues, she was better able to help him and understanding the problems made it easier for her to deal with his behavior and other things that come with sensory issues.
As far as the tree nuts, you should avoid for a couple of reasons in my opinion. Many times nuts and peanuts are processed on shared equipment---this means a xcontamination problem. Also, many people with food allergies also run the risk of reacting to tree nuts.
Take care...Welcome
