Childhood Food Allergies: Current Diagnosis, Treatment and Management Strategies

Recently, I was invited to prepare an article for my fellow physicians explaining the ins and outs of caring for a child with food allergy.  In the article, my co-authors and I discuss how to properly diagnose a child's food allergy, what medications to prescribe, how to counsel patients/caregivers, and the importance of referring patients to a specialist when appropriate.  Though the article was obviously written for MDs and other readers of "Mayo Clinic Proceedings", there is a lot of interesting information contained within the article that can definitely be understood by readers without professional medical training.  Click here if you're interested in taking a look.
