Boy eats Thanksgiving meal for the first time without fear of food allergy
HOUSTON – Six-year-old Jude Myers said he’s ready to eat mashed potatoes and pies on Thanksgiving day. Not long ago, he wasn’t able to eat anything with even the smallest milk ingredient because of his food allergy. Dr. Savannah Sommerhalder from Aspire Allergy and Sinus in Webster, explains how it’s changing her patients’ lives. “Patients like Jude, are really good candidates for oral immunotherapy,” Dr. Sommerhalder said. Of course, Dr. Sommerhalder warns not to try this at home.
