Food Allergies, Nightline

An story about food allergies will be on Nightline tonight. Curious to see what they say. Will DVR and share tomorrow.

UPDATE: Here's Nightline story: "Allergic to Everything".

The story focused on a "new" breakthrough in food allergies: the food challenge.

However the food challenge is the OLD standard; and still the gold standard.

Perhaps, this story will raise some awareness that blood tests are not the end all of allergy diagnosis but must be used in conjunction with a history of allergic symptoms when eating a food.

More here on blood tests and food challenges.
