Living with a Child with Red meat allergy

Went to the doctor yesterday and he said she goes back in 3 months. Praying the test is negative as he said it has to be negative 2x before he would let her chance eating any red meat. So if that one is negative she will go back in 3 more months for another test. As you can have false positives.

So she still can’t have any “hairy mammal” meat. He said that sometimes people can go into remission but it is still too new to determine too many details on whether they can safely eat meat. But there are now studies on alpha-gal. So hopefully there will be better answers soon.

She has to be careful about some foods you wouldn’t think have meat byproducts including some medications. But he said Claritin as well as the equate version of liquid Benadryl is okay for her to use.

So a lot of new things. Her tests also confirms her allergy to milk, which we already knew about.

It is hard to change your whole lifestyle, so quick, from one thing that happened. It can be life threatening but so far it’s not. Hopefully we can keep it that way.

So for now we just keep on praying and have faith for healing!
