Accurately Diagnosing a Food Allergy

Having a food allergy can change your life.  People with food allergies have to read labels closely, communicate with restaurants and other foodservice professionals thoroughly and constantly be on guard for accidental exposure.

Diagnosing a true food allergy is a complex process, which is why it’s important to seek the help of a board-certified allergist.
