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.

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. This also revealed allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. Since then, we have been able to shop and cook with much greater confidence, knowing the foods we need to avoid to ensure her safety. Life is still complicated, but as long as we are careful, all is well. Suspecting our son might also have allergies, we had him tested at an early age, and so could proceed with confidence, knowing what he could and could not eat. I am sure this has helped minimize the number of adverse reactions they have had.
