Maybe you have thought about this and somewhat organize your kiddo’s food allergy test results in a binder, or maybe you have the results available online. But just like in school when you have a better understanding of things when you write it out yourself, organizing your kiddo’s allergy test results can help you better grasp your kiddo’s disease process and make sure you and your allergist are on the same page (literally!).
You may wonder if there is an easy, helpful way to organize those food allergy test results.
Now there is!
Food allergy test results can and should be organized
In this episode of the podcast, Pam and I discuss the benefits of organizing food allergy test results. We go through the Clinical Info Organization tool, which is available in the Food Allergy Toolbox! By using this tool, you will organize your kiddo’s food allergy history, test results, challenge outcomes, and epinephrine expiration dates. In addition to being better organized, you’ll gain a better grasp of your kiddo’s food allergy.
I’ve mentioned the non-profit Code Ana…
The non-profit The Teal Schoolhouse supports Code Ana, the nation-wide program that equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis. Code Ana’s School Program is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. In a nutshell (pun???), this program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan. A plan is sooo important for all kiddos and for adults at any school! Our primary goal is to share the School Program. Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission! (BTW although Pam and I serve in leadership roles of Code Ana and The Teal Schoolhouse, our time/effort/work is completely voluntary). Does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?
