Results of Jane's Allergy Testing

She is allergic to ALL environmental allergens, EXCEPT Mountain Cedar, Cockroaches and Dogs. She is going to start on allergy shots next week and will be on those for the next 1-5 years, and they gave her a Twin Jet Epi Pen to carry in her purse for emergencies. So, it appears she can live in a Mountain Cedar forest with a Pug and a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach for pets, and do just fine.

Ironically, Mountain Cedar is one of the most potent allergens for most of the U.S. population... but not for Jane. It grows mainly in Oklahoma & Texas.

As far as food allergies go, they are not as extensive. She is going to have further blood testing on those... Rye & Corn are certain allergens for her... the blood tests will focus on Dairy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Soy and Kiwi.
