Background: My almost 8yo ds is sensitive to dairy. When he was a baby/toddler, he had bad reflux and when he (or I) had dairy, it would cause him a lot of stomach pain. As he got older, we noticed that he could have dairy without any stomach issues, but it seemed to weaken his immune system slightly. When he would get a cold or sinus infection it would go to his chest and he couldn't kick it completely until we strictly eliminated dairy from his diet. I did an elimination diet and nothing else seemed to effect him. We also knew that he had environmental allergies which produced itchy, watery eyes, itchy throat, sniffling, sneezing, etc. He had a blood test when he was two and it showed no allergies of any kind. Fast forward to today. He had another blood test for allergies and it showed a 1 for wheat, 2 for peanut, 2 for all trees except Oak which is a 4, 2 for cat dander.
My question is about the wheat and peanut allergy: should I take both of those things out of his diet and see what happens? I was totally surprised by this data. He's never had any obvious symptoms to either thing. Is it better to be safe rather than sorry? I don't see signs of behavior or sleep issues...or learning issues. I dunno. I hate to make him (and us) go without these things for no reason, but I hate for him to have any issues down the line or whatever because I was too lazy to do anything.
