Indianapolis Pollen Counts for June 17th and 18th, 2015

Yesterday grass was low at 2 and today at a moderate level of 5. The category of low, moderate, and high for grass pollen is tighter with significantly lower levels of the grass pollen being significant vs. the tree pollen. Weed pollen was low 6 today and 1 yesterday. It was a low weed count for both days. Plantain was the predominant weed. What really puzzled me were two weed pollens that had that very characteristic look of ragweed. Now that would be a very early appearance for ragweed. We need to see what is collected over the next few days.

Indianapolis Pollen Counts for June 12, 13, and 14, 2015.

Pollen counts for the weekend- Trees were low Friday through Sunday with a 4, 0, and 1 count.
Grass was moderate all three days- 14, 6, and 5 for the counts.
Weeds were low- 2, 6, and 6 grains of pollen per cubic meter of air sampled for the day.
Since we are in grass season and the tree and weed counts were so low, I am only going to post the grass pollen graph.

More Peanut Stories From Our Clinic

More to share today regarding peanut allergy. I saw a 7 month old young lady who has an older sibling (2 years old) with a peanut allergy. The family was well-read on all the developments regarding preventing a food allergy through the early introduction of highly allergenic foods. They wanted to prevent a peanut allergy in the infant.
Their situation was a difficult one- it posses a number of challenges- if the infant can and should have early exposure to peanut, it brings this food into their home and puts the other child in harm’s way.
We had two situations to work through; first, prove the infant could eat a peanut product safely and second, make sure that contact which included the ‘drool’ after a peanut ingestion would not cause a reaction in the 2 year old.
It took 15 minutes for the infant to eat 3 Bamba pieces- she needed take in 14 more- way too long and not a realistic timeline for a mother of 3. We adapted and switched to a peanut flour mixed with apple sauce and she took it easily, quickly, and eagerly.
We waited an hour to make sure she was okay. We repeated a serving of the peanut flour and then allowed her to drool on the arm of her sister. As the next hour passed, neither child had a reaction!
So now we have a new youngest age for a peanut exposure in our clinic at 7 months and we created a real-life situation of secretion exposure and demonstrated all was well. The peanut allergic 2 year old passed the ‘Drool’ test.
Lesson- we had to address the possibility of a reaction from the infant who would interact with her sibling. We tried to recreate what the family may experience at home in a real life situation- it worked. The family felt comfortable in continuing this at home.

An Interesting Day in Clinic- Peanut Allergy

I posted this story on my Facebook medical page-

Bad day for peanut allergy in clinic today. We got rid of the diagnosis of peanut allergy in three children in one day!
We did peanut challenges on a 5 year old, a 2 year old, and an 8 month old. Two passed the food challenge- one out grew his peanut allergy and the other demonstrated that the positive test to peanut due to his atopic dermatitis was a false positive result. The last child was offered the ‘LEAP’ protocol having an egg allergy. That 8 month old was the youngest child that we have given a peanut product to. There were a few anxiety-provoking moments, but we all got through them.

Currently- 24 hours out, this reached over 1100 people.

Indianapolis Pollen Counts for Wednesday June 10th, 2015

Tree pollen made a bit of a rebound (had to use a basketball term- watched the Cleveland Cavaliers last night- two wins away from the first taste of a championship sports team in Cleveland for many years-guess where I come hail from?) with a count of 13- low (black willow and mulberry tree pollen).
Grass was moderate at 12. Weeds poked out at a low level of 3 grains of plantain pollen per cubic meter of air sampled for the day.

Indianapolis Pollen Counts for Tuesday June 9th, 2015

That tree pollen graph was getting too big and becoming not too informative. By this time in 2013 all the tree pollen was done. I think the season for the trees is coming to an end. The count today was 5 which low for trees and they were all black willow tree pollen.
This is the grass pollen season. Today the count was 5 which for grass makes that a moderate level of pollen.

Indianapolis Pollen Counts for Monday June 8th, 2015

Very late report for Monday June 8th. I was able to retrieve the grass pollen data over the past two years for comparisons.
Trees were moderate at 26 yesterday with black willow tree pollen as the predominant type.
Grass pollen was also moderate at 13.
Finally, the weed plantain checked in (or maybe checking out) with a low level of 1 grain of pollen per cubic meter of air sampled for the day.
