Anyone been to Bermuda?  Flights are pretty reasonable...hotels seems expensive.

I'm really having difficulty booking this trip for some reason...can't make a decision where to go.  Trying not to break the bank.
Fairmont Southampton is great with food allergies!  There's a hospital nearby, too.

Do you have the DIN number for adult dose AuviQ? I thought I posted it on the forum, but I cannot find it.

Hurray!!!

Also, Auvi-Q is starting to be covered by third-party insurance companies here.  Mine were covered.  They justness the Canadian DIN number.

Do you have the DIN number for adult dose AuviQ? I thought I posted it on the forum, but I cannot find it.

If you weight more than 60 pounds, you should be prescribed an adult EpiPen, not EpiPen Jr.  The amount of epinephrine in the junior device may not be enough to stop anaphylaxis in an adult.

Main Discussion Board / Re: What is a "food allergy?"
« Last post by rebekahc on December 11, 2018, 12:28:17 AM »
While some of those things may sometimes be true of a food allergy, they are symptoms and not what defines a food allergy. Those things can happen for a variety of reasons which are not allergy such as lactose intolerance, Celiac disease, bacterial contamination, etc.  An adverse reaction to consuming something does not equal food allergy and the above mentioned causes of adverse food reactions would not respond to allergy treatments. 

A food allergy is an IgE mediated immune response to a food protein that then can cause a cascade of symptoms which can be unpredictable and range from mild to life-threatening. Unlike some other adverse food reactions, the only preventative is strict avoidance.
