Helping you to help yourself
At Test My Allergy, we are always aiming to help you to help yourself. In our blog posts, we like to share current and vital information which will help you identify your sensitivities. Currently, the US has an epidemic on its hands because of peanut allergies. The number of kids with a peanut allergy has risen substantially. The question we want to know is why? Is it because we have previously been misinformed or are peanuts causing us more pain because of the change in ingredients and technology. We have been helping to spread the word about the importance of discovering your sensitivities and coping with them, so we are glad to see people are now taking allergies and sensitivities seriously.
If you or your child comes into contact with a peanut then their immune system and body will go into overdrive. This is because it sees the peanut as a threat to its health and wellness. Your body produces antibodies in anticipation for a future encounter with peanuts. Our bodies are very intuitive and therefore releases these antibodies when a peanut is consumed, and if this goes wrong, an allergic reaction occurs.
Get in the clear first
What we are essentially trying to say is that before you start to feed your child peanuts, you should chat with a health professional or a doctor in order to make sure that it is safe and your child does not have a peanut allergy.
