New to allergies? 7 Things you need to know about anaphylaxis

Whether you've just discovered you have an allergy to bee stings or maybe your best friend's toddler is allergic to eggs, you're probably anxious and looking for answers. I'm not going to lie - anaphylaxis is serious and scary. But it can be managed by being prepared and avoiding allergens. I'll explain what it means to have anaphylaxis and how to live with it. 1  Let's start with defining anaphylaxis (or anaphylactic shock) an·a·phy·lax·is, (noun). pronounced anna-fill-axis   Anaphylaxis is defined as a serious allergic reaction that has a rapid onset and may cause death. The symptoms typically come on over minutes to hours. Most people don't realize they have an allergy until they experience anaphylaxis. You wouldn't be alone...

New AUVI-Q Holster: One Accessory that Can Save Your Life

        Auvi-Q Case Clips onto Your Belt Like a Cell Phone We're proud to announce the addition of another member of the CarryNine family - The AUVI-Q Holster! This leather AUVI-Q case was inspired by the Blackberry holster. Just like all CarryNine designs, the AUVI-Q Holster combines things you carry everyday with your medicine. The case holds 1 AUVI-Q and a credit card or two.  The AUVI-Q Holster slips through your belt or clips directly onto your pants or bag. The steel spring clip is super robust and has some serious staying power. Once it's clipped onto your pants, it's not coming off until you take it off...even lasts through washroom breaks (tested - it's true)!  ...

When it's Time to Start Again, CarryNine Reopens

  AUVI-Q Relaunches. CarryNine Reopens With much excitement, CarryNine reopens the website. I can't wait to get things started again! I was thrilled to hear about the relaunch of the AUVI-Q in 2017.  Since many of my products were for the AUVI-Q I closed down my website until AUVI-Q was on the market again.  Now I'm pleased to be serving the food allergy community again.  Hopefully, Kaleo will bring the AUVI-Q to Canada soon! Get Adults Carrying Epinephrine I'm on a mission to get more teens and adults carrying their epinephrine. When my son was first diagnosed with a peanut allergy, people started telling me their own food allergy stories.  The thing that struck me most was that the adults in...

Goodbye Sale from CarryNine

AUVI-Q Recall and CarryNine Closes its Doors The Allerject and Auvi-Q recall last week was a shock to us all.  CarryNine was inspired and built around the compact design of the Allerject. I've put my heart and soul into the business for the last couple of years.  It is with a heavy heart that I say CarryNine will be closing its doors at the end of November.  CarryNine will be having going out of business sales on the Epipen wallets and skins until the end of November.  I've enjoyed contributing to the anaphylaxis and food allergy community.  If Allerject is reintroduced, we may be back.  Until then, stay safe!

4 Tips Every Teen with Food Allergies Needs to Know

Food Allergy Fatalities This Fall This fall has been a tragic one for those in the food allergy community. The news of the freshman Andrea Mariano's passing during her first week of her studies at the University of Queens in Kingston Ontario and 16-year-old Simon Kaz's death in Colorado were fresh in our minds when 17-year-old Morgan Crutchfield succumbed to anaphylaxis in North Carolina. I cannot imagine the loss the parents and those around them feel. As a food allergy parent these stories send chills down my back and fear in my heart. Similarities between the situations are striking: the deaths are attributed to anaphylaxis; they are teenagers (ie. Between 11 to 18 years old); they had peanut allergies; both...
