I have been told by allergists that kids with multiple food allergies are less likely to outgrow allergies than kids with only one food allergy. But there are always exceptions to the rule, and frankly, the more I hear about food allergies and "what might happen", the less I believe, since so many of these statements seem to be based more on opinion than on fact.

Has anyone followed a large cohort of allergic kids for any length of time and seen what happens to their allergies? Not to my knowledge. If someone has some info about such a study, I'd love to hear about it.

Gwen - is that one of the studies that AllerGEN is doing? I can't remember...

was thinking more from a eating out perspective.


Yeah, I guess my problem is that we don't eat out much at all, so I forget to take that into consideration. :)
