Recommendations for the diagnosis and management of food allergy in children and young people
Children's and Young People's Allergy Network Scotland
Food allergy can be classified into IgE-mediated and non-IgE-mediated reactions. IgE-mediated reactions are acute and frequently have rapid onset. Non-IgE-mediated food allergy is frequently delayed in onset, and may need the opinion of a specialist.
This Guidelines summary provides recommendations on assessment, management, and when to consider referral.
