    my daughter received a "remedial" for a remote history of allergy---hers is to cashews and pistachios. She had not some food containing these nuts at one point in her younger years (6 or 7YO) and had some hives which I treated with OTC Claritin and that was that. Needless to say, she just avoided those two and it was really not documented by any testing. At this point, her remedial requires her to submit an R142.00 (allergen specific IgE; quantitative or semiquantitative for: cashews and pistachios). Should it turn out significant, would anyone be able to tell me if these are "waiverable?" Not sure yet where to have this test done (if it is agency-specific or private primary care providers).

    Pretty much everything is waiverable nowadays, especially something as simple as that. Just another hoop to jump through.
