An Overview of Tree Nut Allergies

Tree nut allergies are a collective term for allergic reactions to a diverse group of nuts that grow on trees. While various nuts have unique protein compositions, they are all capable of triggering responses in sensitized individuals.

The most common examples of tree nuts include almonds, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pistachios, pecans, Brazil nuts, macadamia nuts and pine nuts. And while many people consider tree nut allergies to be connected with allergic reactions to peanuts, note that peanuts are actually legumes and grow underground. Despite this, some who are allergic to peanuts may also be affected by one or more tree nuts, though this is not always the case.

Comprehensive Management and Treatment for Tree Nut Allergies

At TexasAllergyMD we use in-person and telehealth appointments to develop innovative allergy treatment plans. For tree nut allergies where various nuts could be responsible for a reaction, we employ careful diagnostic processes to determine the allergy trigger and create an appropriate therapy.

Assess Tree Nut Allergy Symptoms

Tree nut allergy symptoms include stomach cramps, hives, nasal congestion, itching of the mouth and throat and breathing difficulties.

Perform Allergy Testing Procedures

Dr. Mireku uses skin prick testing, blood testing or an oral food challenge to identify the allergens that are causing a reaction.

Create a Personalized Treatment Plan

Allergy treatment plans are dependent on the needs of the individual. Treatments could range from allergen avoidance and medication to desensitization procedures like oral immunotherapy treatment.

Common Questions About Tree Nut Allergies

It is possible to be allergic to one tree nut and not others, though there’s a high degree of cross-reactivity with certain nuts. After a consultation, your allergist may provide recommendations regarding which tree nuts to avoid and which can be tolerated by your child.

While some children will outgrow a tree nut allergy, this occurs less often with nuts than with other common food allergies like milk allergies. Professional testing will determine if your child has outgrown their allergy.

To avoid exposure to tree nuts check food packaging labels, inform restaurant staff when ordering – and be cautious of cross-contamination during food preparation.
