Some Clarification

Thought I would clarify a little bit, since I have been asked about this a few times.

My little guy was tested for, and is actually allergic to nutmeg. Not all people allergic to nuts are allergic to nutmeg. Nutmeg is a seed, and he came up allergic, at a level two. We were advised to avoid anything above a level one allergy.

My little guy tests positive to many things, we just mostly talk about our lives with the peanut/tree nut allergy. We have some testing scheduled for next month, we may have to start talking about his wheat allergy here pretty soon.. Originally, we were at a level one, and I am hoping his recent reactions, are not due to an increase in this.

For now, I am off to get my shopping list done. Thank you for all your emails, and comments. I sure do appreciate all you have to offer.


  1. Poor little guy! He is so lucky to have a mommy like you. :)

  2. keep your hopes up, many allergies do disappear, I love reading about these stories, especially in real life. My good friend's daughter who is now an adult, has outgrown her severe allergy to orange, lemon...

  3. That stinks, I hope it's not the wheat allergy. We are gluten, soy and nut free but it looks like we'll have to go dairy free again as well. Our friend really gives me hope though as he was allergic to many things when he was young and he outgrew them all ;0)
