Allergy RAST/blood (IgE) test reports no milk allergy. Is it possible I could still be allergic to dairy? Suffering from thick nasal mucus.
Yes: Either RAST (replaced by ImmunoCap IgE) and prick skin testing can miss some food allergies. I often test a patient to the food itself when the history and test findings do not match. Recently I was about to challenge a young boy to walnut (history positive, skin test negative) when the skin test turned out to be highly positive to the actual nut. Mold & mite allergies are more likely in HK. ...Read more
My blood test said I have a milk allergy (moderate), but i still drink milk. Could the blood tests have been wrong? Could it weaken my immune system?
Irrelevant test : Unfortunately, food allergy testing by skin test or blood test is not very predictive. A negative skin test is very good about saying a person is not allergic, but positive blood and skin tests are very common and are clinically relevant less than 50% of the time. The real milk test is what happens when you drink it----nothing. This is a problem with the test and not your immune system. ...Read more

My 3 month son has silent reflux doctor thinks he has milk allergy will a stool sample confirm this also why does s/r cause my bby to cough & wheeze?
No / reactive airway: A stool sample is unlikely to provide any significant information on reflux or wheezing. Reflux is a universal event, a burp is a dry reflux from the stomach while the wet ones cause most of the problems. Your windpipe has a flap designed to close & let you swallow fluids/food. When you reflux, it can get a little fluid past the flap & trigger cough, wheezing & occasionally a pneumonia. ...Read more
