Avoiding the Risks of Elimination Diets

The NIAID Food Allergy Guidelines Expert Panel recommends an elimination diet for the treatment of a properly diagnosed food allergy. Additionally, elimination of one or a few foods may be useful for diagnostic purposes, especially to help identify food triggers for certain non-IgE mediated allergies. Elimination diets, however, are not without risk. Children in particular are at increased risk ...
