A Current Practical Approach to the Diagnosis of Suspected Adverse Reactions to Foods
Abstract:The diagnosis of adverse reactions to foods and food additives continues to rely on the history and physical examination supported by the judicious use of specific procedures. These include, where applicable, elimination diets, skin testing using water soluble food extracts, in vitro tests for the measurement of food-specific IgE, and, in selected cases, oral challenge with suspect food antigens and additives. The advantages and the disadvantages of the various procedures are examined.
