Ask the Allergy Coach Q15: Should we make our home completely nut free for our nut allergic daughter?

Q: Our daughter was recently diagnosed with a nut allergy. My wife and I are used to eating a lot of nuts in our diet. We of course want to keep our daughter safe but wanted to find out could we keep nuts in our home or should get rid of them all? What should we do?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q14: Still getting stomach aches even after doing an elimination diet. Is this normal?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q14: Still getting stomach aches even after doing an elimination diet. Is this normal?

Q: When you do an elimination diet is there a “delay” in your stomach getting better? It took me over a month off the foods for my joint pain to subside, but I am still getting stomach aches nearly every day, usually right after I eat. But it doesn’t seem to matter much what I eat that I can tell, it happens after every meal of a reasonable size. I’ve been totally free of intolerant foods since early September…does it just take a while for the stomach to heal or am I missing something?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q13: Is it wrong to miss eating the allergens my child is allergic to?

Q: My son is allergic to all nuts, sesame and egg. We don’t eat “may contains” and we don’t have his allergens in the house. Is it wrong that I really miss eating eggs and nuts but I feel guilty whenever I do? Even if he is not around?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q12: Can an adult suddenly develop a peanut allergy?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q12: Can an adult suddenly develop a peanut allergy?

Q: Can an adult suddenly develop a peanut allergy? Last night it occurred to me it was the second day in a row that while eating peanut butter filled pretzels I developed a horrible tight cough immediately. Although we have epi-pens in the house for my son’s allergies, I’m too scared to try peanut butter again. Is this possible?

Ask The Allergy Coach Q11: What sauce can I make/buy that is free from egg, dairy, gluten and sugar?

Q: Looking for some sauce ideas. I can’t have egg, dairy, gluten or high sugar. I’ve been using Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce to throw on meat but it’s too much sodium. Anything I could make or buy?

Ask the Allergy Coach Q10: What Can I Do? Almond Milk in the Nut-Free Nursery…

Ask the Allergy Coach Q10: What Can I Do? Almond Milk in the Nut-Free Nursery…

Q: My son goes to a private daycare. They had decided to make the room peanut and tree nut free for him… until… another mom complained. Because, obviously, it’s not fair to her child since she wants to send almond milk for her child as his protein. The director asked for a letter from our allergist explaining the need of being nut free. Even after receiving his letter saying my son needs to be in a nut free room, they’ve decided to allow them to send almond milk. Which, ironically, has less protein than the soy, coconut, or Lactaid milk I give my son! I’m ticked! What can I do?
