Wheat and Milk allergy in 8 year old female
stephcom posted:
We just recently found out my daughter, who just had an IgE test, tested positive for allergies to Wheat and Milk proteins. She also has migraines, but we are still searching for the cause. Her results were 3.62 on the wheat and 4.67 on the milk. The specialist says that those aren't high enough to cause her migraines and not even the right types of allergies that cause migraines like hers. She is due for a CT scan of her sinuses and head Tuesday so we can look into finding the cause of her migraines. However, I am not quite certain on what those numbers mean in reference to her allergies. Anyone with a web address in which I can get information or any personal experiences with this, please help and let me know.

Did you see an allergist? Was it a RAST blood test?

Scroll down a bit, and there is a chart with a range of IgE numbers.
stephcom replied to mrswhitecastle's response:
I'm not sure what they called the test. All I know is I had to hold my 8 year old down for them to draw the blood and come back in two weeks for the results. I think it was, though.
Gregory M Metz, MD responded:
Allergy testing can be done by skin testing or by blood. Both tests can only be interpreted in the context of symptoms that occur with consumption of those foods. Food allergy leads to symptoms such as itching, hives, lip/tongue swelling, nausea, vomiting or anaphylaxis. Isolated headaches would be unlikely caused by food allergy. Certain foods can make migraines worse through non-allergic mechanisms. Those values for wheat and milk can only be interpreted by a physician who has gathered information about your daughter's symptoms following consumption of these foods. Chronic rhinosinusitis can exacerbate headaches. Does she complain of alot of nasal congestion or pressure?
