I am new to this site also. My daughter is 6 yrs. old and we recently found out she is allergic to chicken, which was so wierd to me. We noticed that she was always sick and out of energy, so the doctor ordered allergy tests and the result was chicken and pecans. Her first doctor would say she was allergic to red dyes, chocolates and sodas. what a quak!!! I was so upset because that's what we eat most of the time. So now her asthma is doing a little better due to us knowing her allergy now. She has much more energy since we changed her diet. I thought she was alone

BJD & Mommy5: I think this is a fantastic site! I'm a respiratory therapist, asthma mgt instructor and my son was diagnosed as severe asthmatic when he was only 3 (he is now 19). There weren't any sites like this and not much info on the internet or in libraries. That is why I went back to college 8 yrs ago and changed my career. The American Lung Association has a lot of info available and will send you anything you need (simply call the 1-800 #). My son was allergic to cockroach dust and was in and out of hospitals, especially in October - December and again March - Mid-May. I couldn't understand how he was having so many attacks since I was always cleaning. Cockroach dust is found in chocolate candy! Halloween, Christmas chocolates, and Easter chocolate was his downfall. After quiting chocolate, his asthma attacks decreased tremendously. His asthma was and still is very responsive to cig smoke. It gets me when bldgs are "smoke free" when they allow people to smoke near entrances. I'm sorry, asthma education is a passion to me ... I have been known to go on and on. Good luck to you on your asthma mgt.
