Re: Kindergarten teacher does not take nut allergy serious

Also not all nut an peanut allergies are life threatening however most doctors prefer to be "safe than sorry". Nowadays there are more specific tests available though that can with high certainty evaluate the risk for anaphylactic chock.

Note that a peanut allergy is one thing and a nut allergy is another. People can have both, or either (or none), but the allergen in peanuts is not the same as in nuts. Mainly because peanuts aren't, botanically speaking, nuts at all.
