NIAID, Draft Guidelines, Food Allergy

I saw a news story on Twitter about this yesterday (through @kfatweets and @allergistmommy) and just as I was about to post, NIAID emailed me this morning. Have a look at this press release:

Public Comment Sought On Draft Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, is seeking public comment on draft Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy. The public comment period is open for 60 days beginning March 5 and ending May 3. Health care professionals and interested members of the public are encouraged to review the guidelines and participate in the open comment period by visiting the NIAID Food Allergy Clinical Guidelines public comment site at http://www.niaid.nih.gov/topics/foodAllergy/clinical/comments.htm.

For more information, go to http://www3.niaid.nih.gov/news/newsreleases/2010/FoodAllergyGuidelinesComment.htm.

NIAID conducts and supports research—at NIH, throughout the United States, and worldwide—to study the causes of infectious and immune-mediated diseases, and to develop better means of preventing, diagnosing and treating these illnesses. News releases, fact sheets and other NIAID-related materials are available on the NIAID Web site at http://www.niaid.nih.gov.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH)
—The Nation's Medical Research Agency—includes 27 Institutes and Centers and is a component of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is the primary federal agency for conducting and supporting basic, clinical and translational medical research, and it investigates the causes, treatments and cures for both common and rare diseases.

Hi AG, Just by co-incidence i came across your blog... i have a 17yr old daughter with an anaphylactic response to all nuts, sesame & legumes... & one truth i have always told her is that if it were not for her allergies we would not be the healthy family that we are, as her allergies took us away from a packaged & fatty meat diet to the fresh & organic & mostly vegan (We add fish & eggs back in for protein) lifestyle that we lead now and i ~Bless~ her for that & all the important lessons she has taught us about what is really important in life x

Good grief, Sloane, this puppy is 119 pages long! I'm reluctant to kill that many trees, but that's a lot of online reading! Oy!
