If I post my son's results, can anyone here be able to read/help me understand? pediatrician said yes, he has food allergies, GI doc said no, he doesn't and no allergist will even look at him unless his numbers are higher...I will post results if someone can help!

Thanks!

What are his symptoms when he consumes these things? Allergy testing is notorious for having many false/negatives and false/positives. You need to follow what the body is telling you. If you suspect a wheat allergy, try having him go gluten free for a few weeks and see how he does. If he improves or has no symptoms then introduce a wheat product and see how he reacts. Of course this all depends on how severe the reaction is. If he gets swollen lips/mouth/throat from foods, do not attempt a re-introduction.

You could try the elimination diet, but double check with his doctor before trying it.
According to the levels-
possible milk and peanut allergy
good chance of allergy to wheat

I scored high on a shellfish allergy, but could eat shrimp until I ate snow crab legs and had a reaction. Now I can't even smell shrimp cooking.
