BLOG: Girl Meets Peanuts; by Nancy and McKenna

There 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.


Girl Meets Peanuts

I found out I had a peanut allergy when I was 15 months old after eating the crust of a peanut butter sandwich. Within a few minutes I had broken out in hives. From that day on, I have had to watch what I eat and what others around me ate. Soon that will no longer be an issue. Join me on my adventure to eating peanuts through oral immunotherapy.

12mg dose

 A little reminder about how much 12 mg is… (photo)
On 12/10/15, I had a minor reaction. I got a little welt on my lip, but I remained calm and it went away. I haven’t had any reactions since and I think it was caused mostly by homework stress.
This time I mixed my peanut in…
  • Apple Sauce
  • A grape
  • Cheese
  • Ice Cream
  • Fried Rice
  • Marshmallow (I want to try to make it into a s’more soon)
  • Cookie dough
The biggest trick is trying to find something that you can’t taste the peanut flour (it taste nasty)…So far I haven’t found anything that completely masks the taste.
Okay, I’m going to post this so I can go to bed. I have to be up in 6 hours to head to the new appointment. Hopefully they will (more than) double the dose to 25mg.
