ABOUT THE BOOK
Uche’s daughter, Chimamanda, was diagnosed with cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) and egg allergy at three months old, even though she had been exclusively breastfed. In this book, Uche shares her family’s journey through their daughter’s food allergies – the winding path to a diagnosis; the struggles to manage the consequences; the impact on their relationships; and the unexpected opportunities and the successes.
As a scientist who spent her PhD years studying inflammation, the underlying mechanism that drives allergies, she has applied her research skills to gather the most salient and useful information for families of children with allergies. This combined with her very personal experience has cumulated in this short guide on how children and their families can thrive with allergies.
Uche talks about dealing with remarks from friends and strangers alike on her daughter’s skin, the winding path to a diagnosis, the realisation of what was ahead, the impact on her parental expectations and how they are where they are now.
