brill news!

out son grew out of all his tree nut allergies but one, and of course still have peanuts and others, but it did increase his food choice.

its a weird feeling when your allergic kid eats a walnut direct from a shell!

That's great news!

our DS had negative SPT to peanuts and some tree nuts last month (went to see an NHS allergy specialist in our nearest big city, was excellent, we should have gone years ago...) There is a possibility that his high RAST scores for nuts in the past may have been a false positive. Still waiting for the results of most recent blood tests, but looks like he may be challenged in the summer.

I do remember that your DS is/was also allergic to peas and lentils.. New consultant said that if our DS turns out not to be allergic to nuts, he is more likely to grow out of confirmed allergies to peas, lentils and beans eventually.

So very pleased for you and your DS! I know he is allergic to many things, but this does open a lot of food opportunities for him. smile

Great news babybarrister! Congrats to your DS. Certainly gives me some hope. We're waiting on a date for DS's skin prick tests. Even if we could just lose one...

That is good news. My DD had a pistachio nut challenge today and all went well. And her last spt was negative for peas and borderline for lentils which she had reacted to before. So we can spread the good news too. Only milk, eggs and cashews to go.

That's great news babybarrister. Interesting what you said about the baked egg challenge as my DS still has very high RAST results to whole egg (47.9kua/L) but consultant requested additional test to specific protein in egg (ovomucoid?) and because that was low (0.06), he decided to go ahead with baked egg challenge and DS passed (much to my surprise). Maybe this is the same test that was done for the SNIFFLE study?
