I have identical twin boys who will be 3 this week. They have both been 'suspected' asthmatics since they were 10 months old. We had the results of allergy tests on thurs and found they are allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, soya, peanuts and one of them to house dust mite.
We have a gp appointment tomorrow to discuss the results ( i was given them via telephone by their asthma / allergy nurse)
Does anyone have any experience of this, and also will cutting out / down these products improve their asthma? We have started to change their diet but hope we will be referred to a dietician.
Also plastered across the hospital print outs I received in the post today for one of the boys is SEVERE ASTHMATIC. We were led to beleieve there was no diagnosis yet. Does this mean he has a diagnosis or could this just be something that has been given as a reason for the allergy tests? He did have a severe attack in August resulting in a cardiac arrest (the reason they have now taken my suspicions of allergies seriously at last!)
Also, one twin has a Ige result of 107 (the one stated as severe asthmatic), the other of 230. this seems a massive difference to me. Could this mean there are more unknown allergies in one child?
I will discuss all this with the GP tomorrow but would appreciate any insight.
