Lecture Overview

Allergy testing can confirm suspected allergies to foods, insects, and some medicines. However, their results must be considered holistically alongside a person’s clinical history. With a range of costly and often unproven methods available, it is essential that health professionals are well-informed. This session highlights reliable diagnostic approaches to identify and confirm an allergy.
