Advice needed: Food allergies testing results

For the record, we have gotten all the info we can from the pediatrician and are in a 2 month wait for the pediatric food allergy specialist.

My son is 14 years old. His pediatrician ordered allergy testing (IGE bloodwork) due to GI issues. The results came back positive for rice, soy, and most of the nut panel. His total IGE is 708. His CBC shows slightly elevated MCH, eosinophils (currently only slightly elevated but previously triple the high range), and monocytes, slightly low neutrophils.

Pediatrician says that his high total IGE could be skewing the specific tests making the artificially high. So, I have all this information and don't know what to do with it. If he doesn't really have food allergies what is causing the high IGE? If he does have all those allergies they are clearly not life threatening. The doctor did not mention anything about avoiding those foods while we wait for our specialist appointment.

Just looking for advice from those who know more about food allergies then I do about what to expect next. Interested in hearing stories of those who have been though the process and how it went for them. Would love info on online resources on multiple food allergies.
