Caring for a child/loved one with food allergies? Please keep the lines of communication open with your child’s allergist. Food allergy testing should be administered only under controlled conditions. ABC News/Good Morning America shares a glimmer of hope in a story of tolerance testing for peanuts. Though it’s promising that some day we may be able to put peanut (and other food) allergies in the past, it’s imperative to work with your physician to conduct testing. Do not try this at home.
