If you can get a copy of The New York Times magazine section for March 10-- Do it! There is an article about Kari Nadeau of Stanford University who is desensitizing kids to multiple foods at once. And it's working!
Yup. IT'S WORKING.
It's not an easy road-- these kids are troopers with in- hospital dosing and every three weeks up dosing. But it's working and their allergies to foods are gone. They'll need to eat these foods daily for a few years-- pieces of these foods at least. But they will not get reactions.
Sounds unbelievable. But true.
Perhaps this treatment protocol will be available to more soon-- and we thank those brave kids and their parents and families for taking this road.
What would your child's life be like without food allergies?
I saw that article and thought of you and your son immediately. How wonderful that there's light at the end of the tunnel!ReplyDelete
