From a NIH press release: Available Now! The U.S. Food Allergy Guidelines Summary for Patients

NIAID has issued the Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy in the United States: Summary for Patients, Families, and Caregivers. Use the summary to start a conversation with your doctor about the following:
• What food allergy is and what it isn’t
• How doctors should diagnose and manage food allergy
• The best way to treat anaphylaxis
Download your free copy today at the NIAID Web site.
Also visit NIAID’s Food Allergy page and Food Allergy Guidelines page for more information.


From the NIH website about why you WANT this document:
What's in It for Patients
What the Guidelines Summary Tells You
The Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy in the United States: Summary for Patients, Families, and Cargivers summarizes the most important information from the Guidelines and provides a starting point for patient-doctor conversations about food allergy. We hope that this information will empower patients, families, and caregivers with the knowledge they need to manage the disorder and, in turn, experience a better quality of life.
