Initial Class 1 + Nut Allergy Sufferer...

Hi everyone,

I am due to take my Initial Class 1 medical soon, but it was mentioned to me by a friend that having a nut allergy may be an issue with the CAA?
I've read other threads on here regarding this issue, but nothing seems to be definitive, except I've heard there was a rule change since a pilot with HIV wasn't issued an initial Class 1?

I recall having a blood test around 20 years ago (As a child) and was told I was allergic to Cashew nuts... (Not Peanuts) - I carry an EpiPen

Is there anyone with a similar experience that could shed some light? It would be greatly appreciated!
