About this book
Comprehensive and practical, this book thoroughly addresses the full range of concerns related to food allergies in the pediatric patient. As food allergies in the pediatric population increase in number and severity, Pediatric Food Allergy: A Clinical Guide provides information on new guidelines and potential treatment options, as well as working to improve awareness, diagnosis, management and prevention practices.
Written by experts in their respective fields, chapters are divided into five sections. Opening with an introduction and overview of particular concerns and issues specific to food allergy in the pediatric population, sections two and three address diagnosis and management of comorbid conditions in food allergy, along with development of food allergies and current prevention recommendations. Sections four and five cover food allergy management, prognosis, and therapeutic options with a look to future developments, while all sections include a discussion of epidemiology, differential diagnoses of other potential food-related diseases.
In Pediatric Food Allergy: A Clinical Guide, pediatricians and allergists alike will find an invaluable resource as they work with this vulnerable patient population.
