First time on the forum, just wanted to see if anyone had any knowledge on the allergy blood tests. My son's blood work can back with 2's on cashews and pistachoes and 3 on sesame.

Sorry I don't know much about the blood results. We had dd's blood work done for the first time this year. Our allergist mentioned that the numbers can mean different things depending on what the allergen is.

Welcome to the board! Perhaps you'd get more responses if this was under a more general topic?

Yes, I've heard the same thing about the numbers meaning different things according to the allergy. My son has a rast of 12.9 to sesame & his other allergies vary. We've been able to challenge some of the tests that are under 0.9. You'll probably have to ask your allergist for more information.
