New form of allergy testing on the horizon – and it’s being researched at the IWK!

September 27, 2008

I read the following article in the newspaper this morning about a new way to test for food allergies – very exciting! What’s even more exciting is that the research is being done at the IWK! Olivia has done two different food challenges, but failed both, meaning that she was still allergic and as a result was miserable for days afterwards.  How amazing is the thought that kids (& parents) may not have to go through that anymore at some point, but instead just have a blood test!
