91398 - Assessing and managing IgE-mediated food allergies in children

  • : Online

 

Online learning module with an original peer-reviewed update on assessing and managing IgE-mediated food allergies in children

Relevance to General Practice


- Food allergy is an increasingly common problem that affects about one in 10 babies (up to 12 months old) in Australia. 
- Furthermore, the incidence of peanut allergy has undergone a 100% increase over the past 10 years. 
- New evidence suggests that early introduction and regular ingestion of certain allergenic foods significantly reduces the risk of developing food allergy. 
- There are several proven methods to identify food allergy as well as unproven methods - the latter have not been scientifically validated and may lead to dangerous avoidance strategies. 
- Based on new evidence, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) has recently published revised infant feeding guidelines.
