- Sensitization alone is not sufficient for diagnosis of food allergy. Diagnosis should be based on a combination of sensitization (blood tests) and clinical symptoms.
- There is insufficient evidence to recommend dietary modification/restrictions from allergens during pregnancy. In high risk food allergy families, peanut may be a notable exception.
- Peanut and sesame oils may contain trace amounts of protein (depending on how they are processed), so should be avoided.
- Those who tolerate baked milk are more likely to outgrow their allergy, and faster than those who don't.
- Approximately 75% of children with food allergy will tolerate heated egg or milk.
- As moms, we do our very best for our children. Please never blame yourself for child's allergy. INCREDIBLY complicated. (I particularly appreciated this comment since I keep asking myself what I could have done better/different to prevent my child's allergies.)
There are many more on Twitter. I have mentioned only a few to give you an idea of the valuable content you can find there.
