For parents, day to day life is already filled with surprises, but could food allergies be one of them?  A story recently ran in The Mercury News, takes a look at two Bay Area families as they manage their kid’s food allergies.  According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, food allergies in children have increased 18 percent between 1997 and 2007.  In a more recent study in 2018 conducted by Northwestern University concluded 1 in 12 kids have a food allergy.  What’s even more challenging for parents is some of these kids with food allergies don’t have any previous family history of food allergies.

As parents, we all try to keep our kids safe but when you have a child that has a food allergy, there is a whole new level of stress and worries.  Not only do you have to educate your child with the food allergy, you have to educate everyone that is a part of their lives.  Living with a food allergy is life changing because now before eating anything, you must read the label or ask how has the food been prepared.

What’s worse is, you don’t know how your body is going to react from one exposure to the next.  One reaction might be swelling or it could be a full anaphylactic reaction.  You just don’t know what to expect nor do you ever want to find out.

Here’s an article with a tragic reminder of how severe food allergies can be.  Denise was an 11-year-old who had a milk allergy, died from an accidental exposure to milk protein in a new prescription toothpaste.  Her mother Monique wants to get the message out to everyone, not to get comfortable even when you’ve been managing it for years.  To read this article click here.

Getting sick is bad enough, but sometimes the medications can make you feel even worse.  Having anxiety about the side effects of medications prevent people from finishing the recommended doses to not taking the medication at all.  Researchers at Stanford University wanted to take a look at if their was a change in the patient’s mindset could it help with their treatment.  The researchers used a group of kids that were enrolled in a peanut allergy trial at Stanford.  Having an allergy to peanuts can be very stressful not only for the child but their parents as well.  The study group was split into two groups and differed by the message that they received.  One group was told a positive message saying the symptoms are a sign that your immune system is learning to desensitize which means the treatment is working.  While the other group was told the symptoms experienced can be an unfortunate side effect of the treatment process.
