Ronil’s story of treating his peanut and cashew allergies with oral immunotherapyLakhbir had the terrifying experience of rushing her four year old son, Ronil to the hospital after he ate a snickers bar which caused an anaphylactic reaction. From that day forward, the family carried multiple epipens. They avoided peanuts and read the fine print on everything. This caused years of angst for the entire family, until they heard news of a classmate taking part in OIT with Dr. Chacko. Within weeks, they too, found themselves beginning their own OIT journey with Dr. Chacko. Ronil is eating up to five peanuts a day now. Lakhbir tells us that life is just easier, Birthday parties are easier, and Ronil is allowed to go on playdates (which he never was before). So what’s next for Ronil? OIT with cashews, so that he and his family can one day enjoy delicious traditional Indian food.
