  • Disney World and Peanut/Tree Nut Allergies: It Really Is the Happiest Place on Earth

    2 Aug 2014 | 3:31 pm
    For years, I've heard about how nut allergy-friendly Disney World in Orlando, FL is and I can now say that I know it to be true firsthand. A couple of weeks ago my family finally went to Disney and while it was just a fun time overall, the approach to food allergies it what made the experience even more special for my entire family.I know that summer is winding to a close, but for any of you contemplating visiting Disney World in the future, I thought I had to share this summer vacation story. Disney World does their best to help and accommodate guests with food allergies. Even better, they…
  • Graduating to a Summer Blog Break, Plus a Nut-Free Basil Pesto Recipe!

    17 Jun 2014 | 1:51 pm
    Hi everyone and Happy Summer! As many of my regular readers know, I've not been blogging as much lately and that's for many reasons. One is that I've been working on some new and non-food allergy writing projects, the other is that I was super-busy getting my oldest daughter through her last few days of 8th grade. Yep, I have an 8th grade graduate, heading to high school next year. Getting to this point with my daughter, who has severe peanut and tree nut allergies, has been a long but rewarding road. Those of you who read my blog regularly probably know that working with schools regarding…

  • Children treated daily with ICS grow 0.5 cm less during the first year of treatment, no difference second year

    Ves Dimov, M.D.
    3 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Two literature reviews by The Cochrane Collaboration evaluated the effect of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) on growth in children with asthma. The first review included 25 trials with 8471 children (5128 ICS-treated and 3343 control) with mild to moderate persistent asthma. The second review included 17 group comparisons derived from 10 trials (3394 children with mild to moderate asthma). Trials used ICS (beclomethasone, budesonide, ciclesonide, fluticasone or mometasone) as monotherapy or as combination therapy. Regular use of ICS at low or medium daily doses was associated with a mean…
  • Role of macrolides in asthma: promise of efficacy, search for responsive phenotype continues

    Ves Dimov, M.D.
    2 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Macrolides, such as clarithromycin and azithromycin, possess antimicrobial, immunomodulatory, and potential antiviral properties. They are a potential therapeutic option for asthma but the results from clinical trials have been contentious. The findings could be confounded by many factors, including the heterogeneity of asthma, treatment duration and dose. Recent evidence suggests effectiveness of macrolides in patients with uncontrolled severe neutrophilic asthma and in asthma exacerbations. At present, the use of macrolides in chronic asthma or acute exacerbations is not justified. Further…
  • Antimalaria drug hydroxychloroquine use for chronic urticaria is based on only one published study

    Ves Dimov, M.D.
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:45 am
    What is it?Hydroxychloroquine is an antiinflammatory drug and antimalarial agent. The relative safety of the low doses, and the low cost of hydroxychloroquine makes it a reasonable agent in the treatment of refractory chronic urticaria (CU). One of the disadvantages is the relatively slow onset of action. How the works?The mechanism of action includes suppression of T lymphocyte activation and antigen processing. Paucity of research dataApparently, there is only one published study in PubMed, from 10 years ago, which included only 18 patients with chronic urticaria…

  • Food Allergy Consumer Product Review: No-Nut Butter

    14 Sep 2014 | 4:37 am
    Empy jar of No-Nut ButterHave you heard of The Sneaky Chef? If not, I am sure you will read more about her soon!A few months ago, we had the delightful pleasure of sampling the Sneaky Chef's No-Nut Butter. It was so good, I had to pace myself in eating up the samples we had received. The taste and consistency are so reminiscent of peanut butter, it's remarkable! It is made from golden peas, and does not contain any of the top 11 food allergens. The manufacturing facility is peanut-free and nut-free as well. It contains no high fructose corn syrup and the peas and canola oil are…
  • Food Allergy Find: Peanut-Free Lofthouse Cookies

    2 Sep 2014 | 1:40 am
    I had read that Lofthoue had begun making peanut-free frosted cookies at a new manufacturing facility and finally spotted some over the holiday weekend. On the one hand, it is exciting to see another peanut-free option at a local store. On the other hand, the two stores where I spotted them had them sitting side by side with the non-peanut free cookies. Talk about an accident waiting to happen. Although the new peanut-free cookies are labeled "peanut-free", they do look quite similar to the packages of non-peanut free cookies. This brought to mind two things:  Is there any way the…
  • Food Allergy Bloggers: Two Tips

    25 Aug 2014 | 2:08 pm
    Today, everyone has a blog! I started Food Allergy Buzz back in 2008, when there weren't very many food allergy bloggers. Now, there are a lot of food allergy blogs, and every major food allergy friendly food manufacturer and their PR folks know they can offer product in exchange for a review or an informational post on a multitude of food allergy blogs.I recently received a request from a marketing firm which clearly asked me to accept payment for publishing posts linking to a company, not to disclose that the posts are sponsored, and also to use follow links, not nofollow links to…

    Below is information from Eastern Michigan University about a pediatric psychology study related to food allergies which is being conducted currently. Please take a look and consider participating!The goal of this research project is to learn more about how families cope with children’s severe food allergies so that we can design interventions for children and families that are needed and parent-informed. Some examples of interventions that psychologists might provide to families of children with allergies include: support groups; mobile “apps” that provide parents with allergy…
  • Some New Food Additives Cause Allergic Reactions?

    18 Aug 2014 | 4:28 am
    A recent article in The Washington Post, entitled "Food Additives on the Rise as FDA Scrutiny Wanes", is particularly interesting, especially for those of us already managing food allergies. Among other things, it discusses how a change in FDA approval processes inadvertently opened the door for food manufacturers to use new additives without a thorough review from the FDA. Please take a look!

  • Chocolate Lovers’ Carob Bars

    Aubree Cherie Davis
    14 Sep 2014 | 4:47 pm
    I know, carob is gross. At least, that’s what we’re all led to believe. Especially if we use it like we do cocoa powder and expect the smooth rich flavor of chocolate in our finished product… and then don’t experience that, AT ALL. But, I’m so excited to share something I’ve discovered that makes carob taste remarkable like chocolate! I know what some of you might be thinking. Why not just use chocolate? Well, long story short, I’ve been facing allergic reactions and no allergist can find the cause, so they have suggested various things to try. One of…

    My little guy is now almost 11 months, and this was a game we played together when he was 8 months… so in regards to my prompt posting… oops ;) I will say though, he is the wonderful reason my blog is dragging a bit these days. He’s so much more important! But I’m also really glad to have this place to share all the fun we’re having and to make the activities feel even more purposeful, since I know I will be sharing them. This idea came from playcreateexplore.org, and I just loved it. He wasn’t sure at first, but then really warmed up to the bags after…
  • Tarragon Goat Cheese Chicken Salad (GF, DF, & SF)

    Aubree Cherie Davis
    3 Sep 2014 | 10:21 am
    I’ve never used tarragon in cooking before. Not sure why, but there was some on the ‘soon to be spent’ rack at the store the other day, so I thought I’d give it a try. I’ve been trying to do more with fresh herbs lately so I was up for it. I did what any good chef would d0 (p.s. I’m NOT a chef, so I definitely not a good chef either ;)), I bit into a sprig to see what it tasted like. It reminds me of a soft licorice or aniseed taste. Not the horrid disatisfying taste of a black licorice candy (sorry to anyone who actually likes the stuff!), but a…

  • The Important Difference Between Clinical Allergy and Allergy Sensitization

    AllerVision LLC
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    A doctor’s review of patients’ medical history is as important as skin test results in diagnosing clinical allergies. I’m sure you have patients come into your office and say: “I was once tested by an allergist and told I was allergic to everything green!” I’m  always dismayed when I hear that patients were given results in this manner. Almost no one is allergic to “everything green.” Patients may be sensitized to multiple allergens but most likely they’re not allergic to them all. Making the distinction between clinical allergy and…
  • The Late Summer Breezes Send Ragweed Pollen Flying

    AllerVision LLC
    11 Aug 2014 | 6:33 pm
    Ragweed spreads widespread misery in late Summer. We’re approaching summer’s finish line and we all want to soak up as much sun and fun as possible before the weather turns chilly. Unfortunately, in addition to marking the end of summer, August hails the beginning of the ragweed pollen season. Ragweed allergy, classically known as Hay Fever, is recognized by allergy suffers far and wide as the “summer cold” that lasts through Labor Day — and sometimes beyond. I have vivid memories of my father suffering from Hay Fever. I was 10 years old and hopeful that my…
  • Humidity and Mold: A Potent Combination to Set off Allergies

    AllerVision LLC
    22 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    Mold i is common in perpetually damp areas, such as this shower stall. It’s been hot and humid this summer, especially along the east coast. This is the time of year that most allergists take their vacations because it is the dormant season for so many trees, grasses, and weeds. This SHOULD be a good period for allergy sufferers as well. But there is a segment of patients who still battle symptoms: mold allergy sufferers. Mold allergens are abundant in the autumn when leaves on the ground spew off the decaying mold (as I mentioned in a previous post which you can read here.) Mold…
  • Taking the Sting out of Insect Allergy: When to Test, When to Treat.

    AllerVision LLC
    8 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    Bee stings can cause severe allergic reactions. Before food allergies became such a big problem, the specialty of allergy was best known for caring for patients suffering from reactions to venomous insect stings. I remember when I was a teenager, my mom was stung by a bee. She called our local general practitioner who told her on the phone “if you are still breathing you’ll be fine.” I think that advice was a little cavalier. She was lucky because in that case he was right. But he should not have brushed her off without knowing for sure. There are some very specific…

    In Part 1 of this series I discussed the immediate hypersensitivity reactions that occur from a few minutes to a couple of hours after a patient takes a medication. Today, I am covering drug reactions that can occur up to two weeks after a medication is given. These reactions are tricky and dangerous for the clinician. A patient you may have seen for a sore throat and a cough two weeks ago now calls you up and tells you he has sores in his mouth and his eyes are red. What should you do?

    Soy Allergy Survivor

  • Soy Free Body Wash Reviews

    Alanna Waldrop
    14 Sep 2014 | 8:03 am
     Soy Free Body Wash Reviews The day after my soy reaction, I took a day to discard everything in my house that contained soy, including bath & body products, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, and hand soap. Because those with soy allergy know that soy is really in everything, I basically threw out everything in my house. I noticed that the rash (Keritosis Pilaris aka “chicken skin”) that had plagued me for years despite interventions from my dermatologist was gradually disappearing. I think it is well worth getting rid of all soy in your home, especially with the…
  • What Does “Soy Free” Really Mean?

    Alanna Waldrop
    8 Sep 2014 | 3:51 pm
    When I first found out that I was allergic to soy, I would simply ask, “Is your product soy free?” If the answer was yes, I thought that was all I needed. WRONG. Companies will not always tell you the truth. Some companies will do everything they can to present their product in the best light, even if that means that they do not tell you everything you need to know about the soy content in their product. In fact, many manufacturers have so many distributors of their products that they do not even know if their ingredients are derived from soy. Is it because they don’t care…
  • Soy Free Recipe: A Cabbage Steak Taste Test

    Alanna Waldrop
    26 Aug 2014 | 4:04 pm
    Before I found out I was allergic to soy, I really didn’t enjoy cooking very much. It was just another chore on the to do list. Now that I see food differently, I like to have fun with my food and experiment in the kitchen. Today’s experiment is with cabbage steaks. I have never tried them and have heard that they are delicious. However, most of the recipes I see online are basted with oil, salt, pepper, and maybe some garlic thrown in. So, I decided to try out different types of seasoning to see if I can “elevate” the cabbage steak to new levels of flavor. First, I…
  • Are Widely Available Soy Free Eggs Coming Soon?

    Alanna Waldrop
    21 Aug 2014 | 4:31 pm
    I was thrilled to walk into my local Whole Foods a few weeks ago to find a reasonably priced egg that was clearly labeled “soy free.” I thought, “Finally, I can safely eat eggs again!” Unfortunately, those eggs were gone within a couple of weeks. Because of that, I started thinking that maybe there are a lot of folks other than soyvivors that are trying to eat soy free eggs. From what I have heard, chickens have not always been fed soy and it was unheard of a few years ago for soy to be included in chicken feed. I have also heard that soybean prices are on the rise,…
  • Restaurants with Allergen Menus

    It’s time for school to start, which means that life is about to get busy for a lot of us. My husband and I were accustomed to eating out a lot before my soy allergy, and there are days when I want so badly to grab takeout and forgo the cooking. Many chain restaurants are now posting their allergen menus. However, there is one thing that I have found to be necessary: No matter how much information is contained in an allergy menu, it is still important to notify your server and/or a manager that you have allergies. The thing about soy is that there are some foods containing soy that the…
