BLOG: Ask About My Peanut Allergy, from 2007; by Betsy, Derek and Bo

imageThere are over 50 OIT family blogs published in our Research & Learn library. They contain the journey of that family in OIT–some are in clinical trials, and others are in private practice with board-certified allergists. All the blogs are fascinating to read, full of wisdom and knowledge unique to that family’s journey.

Bo is one of the earliest OIT blogs we have found. He started at 5 years old in 2006, and as his parents say, is “cured” of his allergy.  While “Cure” is a no-no word, it is pretty accurate for many OIT patients. The allergy goes away, and stays away. Life resumes. This family has even gotten rid of their Epi Pens, something that most OIT doctors would not recommend unless both skin and blood tests have gone to zero and there have been years of dosing. This blog is a great one to read if you want to do a clinical trial; Bo spent the first year with “placebo” dosing and had to start all over with peanuts. But it was worth it!
