Management

Key Messages

  • The cornerstone to the management of food allergy is the exclusion of the trigger food
  • Dietary management advice should be delivered by a dietitian as it needs to be tailored to the individual and take into account the food being eliminated, whether all forms of the food need to be avoided, and the dietary norms of the individual,
  • Assessing and meeting individual nutritional needs is a major priority, especially in children, or adults excluding other foods due to religious or other reasons
  • Due to the sometimes-severe emotional burden that food allergy places on the individual and their carers, specialist input from a speech therapist or psychologist may be necessary
