Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The diagnosis of food allergy requires obtaining a detailed medical history and consideration of differential diagnosis. The offending food(s) may be identified by the medical history, trials of elimination diets, SPT, food-specific IgE measurement, or some combination. However, the reliability of these methods is usually suboptimal, and confirmation of the offending food(s) requires well-designed challenge tests.
