Causes and Risk Factors of Peanut Allergies

Peanut allergies occur when the body’s immune system mistakenly identifies proteins in peanuts as harmful. The abnormal immune response leads to the release of chemicals that cause allergy symptoms.

Because peanut allergies are most often diagnosed in children, age can definitely play a role. Other risk factors include a family history of allergies (genetics) and even having other existing allergies. For example, those with an allergy to tree nuts may also experience hay fever symptoms.

Whether at our allergy treatment centers in McKinney/Prosper and Southlake or during a telehealth consultation, Dr. Mireku works to understand the triggers of a person’s peanut allergy. This approach ensures that each individual receives a treatment plan that works for them.

Preventive Care for Peanut Allergies

Peanut allergies affect people in different ways, from type of symptoms to the severity of the reactions that result from exposure. At TexasAllergyMD, we believe individualized patient care produces the best results. The following is an overview of how we approach peanut allergy care.

Accurate Peanut Allergy Diagnosis

We strive for early detection and a precise diagnosis using safe and reliable skin prick tests and blood tests.

Emergency Guidance

Understanding what to do in an emergency – including being able to administer epinephrine – is critical for those with severe allergies.

Diet and Education

From advice on the foods to avoid to recommendations on cross-contamination, education is a key treatment component.

Pioneering Peanut Allergy Treatments

Our innovative food allergy treatments include oral immunotherapy (OIT) and sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT).

Follow-Up Appointments

Ongoing assessments track the effectiveness of a treatment to keep you safe and healthy.

Common Questions About Peanut Allergies

The main symptoms of a peanut allergy are hives, digestive problems, tightening of the throat, itching or tingling around the mouth and breathing difficulties. Symptoms can range from mild and moderate to severe. Unfortunately, severe reactions include the potential for a life-threatening anaphylactic response.

Some children will outgrow their peanut allergy while others will experience allergic reactions into adulthood. Professional allergy testing can safely determine whether a person still has an allergy.

A person with a peanut allergy could indeed have allergic reactions to other foods, but usually this is not the case. One example of cross-reactivity is being allergic to certain tree nuts, and also reacting to sesame seeds. These seeds are not nuts but their proteins may resemble the nut proteins.
