Food allergy is a common medical condition and a major public health concern; however, its diagnosis and management, including the significant burden on patients and caregivers, is often underappreciated. Approximately 8% of children and 10% of adults in the United States are affected. Food allergy is said to be responsible for 1 emergency department admission every 3 minutes. The Medical Minute 1 activity addresses the pathogenesis and novel strategies in diagnosing food allergy. The Medical Minute 2 activity will review management and prevention strategies for food allergy as well as signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis.
Medical Minute 1:
Medical Minute 2:
- Recognize key elements involved in the diagnosis of food allergy.
- Discuss food allergy pathogenesis and biomarkers.
- Demonstrate management and prevention strategies for food allergy.
- Identify the signs and symptoms of food-induced anaphylaxis.
