oa Current Allergy & Clinical Immunology - Myths and mimics of allergy : guest editorial

Volume 22, Issue 3

A recent cohort study from the UK reported that over 33% of parents believed their child to have a symptom related to food hypersensitivity by the age of 3. While only a small proportion of the children were shown to have reproducible food-related symptoms, these data confirm that even if the rates of true food hypersensitivity (estimated at 5-6% in the study) are not considered epidemic, then parental concern related to it surely is. This rise in parental perception of allergy as a cause of a wide variety of different symptoms is reported by colleagues around the world.
