PA and TNA----dd had her first obvious reaction at age 3 (over 2 years ago). We were told to just avoid nuts for a while. She wasn't diagnosed by an allergist until age 4. (It's been 1 year and 3 months since she was diagnosed)
So take your pick----one or two years depending on how you look at it!

Diagnosis was just 1 year ago, but I've known for nearly 3 years when dd had a reaction, but didn't try to learn anything until diagnosis, just avoided blatant nuts.
Just found out dd#2 is pa 2 months ago.
DH's sister is pa so he's more used to this even though she was never very careful.

DD was having symptoms while breastfeeding. Didn't know it was PA (and egg and milk and tree nut allergies) until she was 18 mos. She is now 7.
DS was diagnosed with egg and milk allergies at 6 mos. He is now 3 1/2.
DD outgrew egg and milk at age 3. DS outgrew milk at age 3.

Melissa why don't you go over to the introductions page and say hello. We have a couple of adult onset members you could share stories with. And maybe don't use your entire name in a post? Not a great idea internet wise....

I had just met my DH when I found out I was allergic. I was 26. It was hard for him to adjust to me eating anything then changing to being careful.

DS1 was diagnosed Feb. 27, 2005 breaking out in hives after eating a PB sandwich. He was 21m.
He had shared a PB cookie with DH Nov 2004 w/no reaction. I gave him a teaspoon Jan 2005 for him to taste and me to "test the waters" as you could say; no reaction. No one else in our family has a food allergy (including grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins).
As of Aug 2007, it's been 2yrs 6m and reaction free.

I was officially diagnosed with PA and TNA almost a year ago (April 24). I found out after the diagnosis that I randomly refused to eat PB and any nuts for that matter when I was three. My parents never bothered to get me tested. I had to do it myself last year after I had a contact reaction while at a conference for school. Since then, I have had two trips to the hospital both accidental exposure.

When I was very young, the pediatrican told my mom I was allergic to peanuts, but no tests were done.
My first trip to an allergy specialist will be coming up in the next two week.
Why? I am now having convulsions when I am exposed...not good......
I HATE PEANUTS!
