Peanut allergy accounts for the majority of severe food-related allergic reactions. Childhood allergies have increased in prevalence by 50% between 1997 to 2011 with peanut allergies almost tripling between 1997 and 2017 (Turke, 2017). It tends to present early in life and affected individuals usually do not outgrow it. Reactions to peanuts can range from mild to severe, such as anaphylaxis. The diagnosis of a peanut allergy is confirmed with the detection of peanut-specific IgE (Czolk R., 2021). The question remains "how does one develop a peanut allergy?" Our research project has used evidence-based practice and nursing research to determine if consumption of peanuts by a pregnant woman can affect the child's likelihood of being born with a peanut allergy.
