Our “New” Allergy Test Results

So, both my boys have had new allergy tests done over the past month, scratch tests and RAST tests. The results were surprising, overwhelming, and depressing.  I am trying to research the new allergens, and rethink all of the meals the boys currently eat. Learning to eat without Corn [and its numerous derivatives],  is proving to be a challenge, as I feel yeast will be hard to work around too. Sad for my older son who cried when I told him he couldn’t have hot dogs, bread or “butter” [canola] anymore.

Jacob, my almost 2 year old, is now showing allergies to the following: Eggs, Peanuts, Dairy- all severe; also allergic to: Canola/Rapeseed; Strawberry, Black bean, Lentil, Green Pea, Green Bean, Corn, Soy, Tree Nuts-[Almond/Pecan/Cashew]-, and mildest reactions to Wheat and Potato.  UPDATE: First RAST test results came in today [8/22] and showed reactions to: Olive was higher than the rest of these listed~ Wheat, Oat, Barley, Gluten, Soy, Rice, Coconut, Tomato, Summer Squash, Squash, Raspberries, Lima Beans, Apple, Spinach~So, some I knew about, and some more new ones- Trying to wrap brain around what and how I am to feed this child! I am admittedly overwhelmed!

 

 

 

 

Caleb, my 5 y/o is starting Kindergarten. He has been tested previously for Dairy, Peanut-Severe!- and Tree Nuts, and nutmeg. He has had bowel symptoms for as long as I can remember- so we had him tested for more things today and I was shocked when his results showed him to be allergic to: Pork, Beef, Egg, Canola, Bakers Yeast, as well as Peanut, Dairy, and Tree nut [a milder reaction than in the past].

Of course these results may be greater once all the final RAST results come in~ I will keep you posted! As I research these new “forbidden” foods I will add pages here to help us all! 🙂

    oh my.. its hard as an adult but how do you reason with a child? Thanks for your post. I think that the pictures are really powerful in explaining the severity of allergies…something people often don’t ‘get’

    So sorry to hear about the new food allergies. It’s tough to have to retool the diet. But that’s the one great thing about living with food allergies. It makes you become flexible and resourceful.

      That it does, however my menu options seem to be shrinking with every new food added to the list!~ It is a reason why I find your website and business to be such a valuable resource!! 🙂 <3 ~Jenny

    Sorry to hear more are added.. we’ve gone back and forth with adding and subtracting over the years.. We have had false positives on both RAST testing and skin testing… I hope that this may be the case for you and your son and that life will get easier as he gets older and his immune system strengthens… thanks for sharing.. the pics are great for others to understand better~
