FEATURE ARTICLE: Living with Severe Allergies


At School, Camp, or Daycare


Classrooms, camps and daycare centers are common sites of severe allergic reactions, so it’s important that your child is prepared in the event of an allergic emergency. In particular, managing food allergies in schools, at camp and in daycare centers can be challenging. But through education, communication and cooperation, allergic emergencies can be prevented in these settings. The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting those affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis. FAAN makes resources available to parents, school administrators, teachers, school nurses, food service staff and camp staff, such as lunch suggestions and cleaning methods, to help keep kids with food allergies safe.


Here are a few resources that may help you prepare for sending your child to school, camp or daycare.


It’s important that your child with allergies, as well as those involved in his/her care, knows how to use the EpiPen® Auto-Injector. Here’s a way to send a short instructional video to friends, family, coworkers, teachers and others — just in case.


Travelling


Whether you’re hitting the open road or taking to the slopes, travel becomes a little more complicated when you or your child has a severe allergy. But when you know what to expect, you can be prepared — and be on your way.


Dining Out


Because life-threatening food allergy reactions can be triggered by food items served in restaurants, it’s important to plan ahead before dining out.


Here are a few things to keep in mind.


Know the alternate names for your trigger foods and avoid them.


Hidden or surprise ingredients are a common cause of fatal allergic food reactions, such as crushed nuts in pie crust or foods cooked in peanut oil. In addition, some products used by chefs, including sauces and dressings, may list ingredients by alternate names. For example, peanuts may be called ground nuts, beer nuts or monkey nuts. It’s essential that you’re familiar with all the names of the food that causes your severe allergic reaction. The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology provide accurate, up-to-date information on specific foods that can cause a severe allergic reaction.


Check the menu or website in advance — or call.


Reading the restaurant’s menu thoroughly, or checking its website in advance, will make communicating with your server, or the chef, easier and quicker. You can always pick up the phone — this works well if your dish will require special preparation.


Eat at off-peak hours


A customer with special needs can really catch a restaurant off guard. Dining at off-peak times — for example, this means having dinner before six or after nine o’clock — may increase the likelihood of ensuring that more attention can be paid to you.


Talk to the wait staff or chef


Restaurant employees generally receive little or no training on the severe nature of food allergies. They’re often unaware of the need to read and understand ingredient labels, the importance of strict avoidance of certain foods, and the necessity of avoiding cross-contact during food preparation. Therefore it’s important to make them aware of your food allergy. One way is to hand them an allergy card with your name, food allergy and specific ingredients to avoid. While convenient, these cards don’t replace telling the restaurant about your allergy. Explain your condition thoroughly — before any food is brought to the table — and request that certain ingredients not be used in your food. If the server doesn’t seem to understand the severity of your allergies, ask to speak to the chef or manager. And if you still feel like the restaurant staff doesn’t understand the risk, you might want to eat somewhere else.


Be sure to have your EpiPen® Auto-Injector with you when dining out.


An allergic emergency can happen anywhere and at any time, so it’s essential for you and your loved ones to be prepared in the event of an emergency. Make sure you speak with your health care professional about how to identify the signs and symptoms of an allergic emergency. If you, your child or someone you're caring for shows signs or symptoms of an allergic emergency, inject the health care professional-prescribed EpiPen® or EpiPen® Jr. immediately, then promptly call emergency services and seek immediate medical attention.


REMEMBER: Only the Activeaide EpiPen® case or AnaPen case offers the best insulated protection for you Anaphylaxis Auto Injector.
