Fantastic App for Allergy Sufferers
When traveling abroad, it can be intimidating to tell a waiter or waitress about your food allergies. This app allows you to show the waiter or waitress your allergy needs without having to speak. Easy app to navigate with 20 languages! This is a must-have for anyone that has a food allergy.
Adult with Food Allergies - PLEASE ADD COCONUT!
I found this after my first anaphylactic reaction, which was 1 week before leaving for a trip to Italy! THIS APP WAS A LIFE SAVER!! My blood test to determine what had possibly caused my reaction took 5 days to get done and I didn’t get it started in time. (I had no idea it had to be sent out to the University of Michigan & could be done locally in Grand Rapids!) So this app was PERFECT!! I could select my “known” allergens (Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Soy) (Corn I can tolerate, it makes my face itch.)
I WOULD QUICKLY GIVE 5 STARS IF YOU WOULD PLEASE ADD COCONUT TO YOUR LIST OF ALLERGENS!!!!!
I got a call from my doctor in Italy to discuss my blood test. I just kept eating what I was able to tolerate-symptoms wise (i.e. Pistachios didn’t seem to bother me then and I can eat peanuts in small amounts, but not on an empty stomach.). Once I returned home, I went to see my Allergist to go over the blood work. I found out that I was allergic to COCONUT! More so than any of the others!! So I’m hoping you’ll add “coconut” to your list of allergens!! PLEASE!!!!! Then I’ll change to 5 stars!!! Thank you very much for your consideration and for making this extremely helpful app!!!!!
Excellent Idea! I travel often for work and pleasure. This will help keep my baby that is allergic to peanuts safe. Thank you!
