Post subject:  peanut allergy confirmed

DD and I are just back from the allergist and are now adding peanuts to her allergies. We have been dealing with tree nuts for the past 2 years already. ANy advice/things to consider now that we have peanut too? I'm hoping it will not be too much of an adjustment.

However still feeling discouraged... :cry:

So sorry to hear about your daughters new allergy. Yes, peanuts are slightly different from tree nuts.

The good news is that many manufacturers are starting to lable their products "peanut-free" so it is easier to find them (still read the labels).

The bad news is that peanuts are legumes and you do need to be aware that beans and legume allergies can develop. Try not to cross that bridge too soon as many people with peanut allergies can tolerate beans etc. It's just something to keep in the back of your mind...
