Giving peanut power could help those with peanut allergy
(KTVI) – There is hope for families dealing with peanut allergies. Doctors say they can treat the potentially deadly allergy by feeding kids the very thing their bodies reject.
Small doses of peanut powder taken over several months seemed to build tolerance in children. After six months of treatment, about 91 percent of kids in the trial could safely tolerate about five peanuts daily.
Doctors say this could save a life in case of accidental ingestion.
