So first round of allergy testing on Mimi is over. How ya like this list so far!
Skin prick testing
Environmental reactions confirmed:
Alternaria- mold from decaying vegetation (means no composting or gardening for her. Also have to keep closer ck on my house plants)
Northern pasture grass- orchard grass, fescue (typical pasture grasses)
The foods will be further tested the with patch testing to confirm those above and to also check for some others more closely that prick testing could have missed. The doctor said,"So far chicken is in the clear, we'll keep routing!" For now, we're not supposed to eliminate any foods yet. They want to complete her testing first. They'll do more in depth testing on her than most because you can't use the food elimination diet as a test on EE patients. Eosinophilic Esophagitis doesn't always react to allergic foods instantly. Sometimes it's not until it's digested and in the blood stream, showing up a day or two later. That makes it harder to trace. So the pricking, patching, bloodwork, and other in-office tests will be the way to go for her.
