Draft Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. New guidelines are being designed for the diagnosis and treatment of food allergies.
Fenton: Not just an academic text that someone will put up on their shelf in their library in their office, but actually have rolled up in their pocket and be using on a daily basis.
Narrator: Dr. Matthew Fenton, at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases explains there have been food allergy guidelines in the past.
Fenton: But they've been largely generated by allergists and used by allergists. And we recognize that this is a clinical condition that’s seen by physicians across a wide variety of specialties.
Narrator: For details on food allergies, visit www.niaid.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
