I recall that first few months of parenthood with regret as a terrible time – very stressful and exhausting – and looking back now I realize also how dangerous it was for my daughter.

IgE blood testing helped enormously in the diagnosis of my son's multiple food allergies.

We knew our daughter was allergic to egg and dairy from her physical reaction as a baby, but it was important to have this backed up by skin prick and blood (IgE) tests.

I finally had some IgE blood tests done a few years ago at my local allergy clinic after having my third anaphylactic attack.

I recall that first few months of parenthood with regret as a terrible time – very stressful and exhausting – and looking back now I realize also how dangerous it was for my daughter. We were really adrift until we reached the allergy specialist, who confirmed the allergy I had suspected as well as some others that I had avoided by chance alone up to that point. Looking back, my child was lucky to make it through that first year at all. If only the proper allergy services had been available when the first symptoms appeared, how different our first months of family life could have been. With allergies on the increase, it’s just so important that children and parents get the quick diagnosis, treatment and support they need to be able to live healthy and happy lives
