FAACT's Newly Diagnosed Guide

Having a food allergy does not have to be an overwhelming experience. We want you to view food allergy as a manageable obstacle that you can overcome. Here are some basic tips for managing food allergies: 

1. Consult a board-certified allergist. Finding an allergist is easy. 
2. There is no way to prevent an allergic reaction other than avoiding the allergen.
3. Always have emergency medication (e.g., auto-injectable epinephrine and antihistamines) with you.
4. Become familiar with how to use your epinephrine device and the steps in your emergency care action plan.
5. Assume nothing is safe. 
6. Read labels on packaged goods.
7. Learn how to clean potentially cross-contaminated surfaces – including your hands!   
8. Discourage food sharing.
9. Become empowered! Living with a food allergy is entirely manageable. 

FAACT's Newly Diagnosed Guide includes all the information and resources you need to get started with managing food allergies. Visit our Newly Diagnosed section, and download FAACT's Newly Diagnosed Guide for free and share with family and friends.
