Food Allergies are a Growing Epidemic
More than 15 million Americans, approximately 5% of adults and 8% of children, have a food allergy and nearly 40 percent of these children have already experienced a severe or life-threatening reaction. Studies have revealed living with food allergies, strict avoidance of the allergen and the fear of accidental exposure, increases anxiety and has a negative impact on a child’s quality of life as well as the family’s quality of life.
Food Allergy Treatment is Available
There is good news! Strict avoidance of problem foods is no longer the only way to prevent a reaction. Many promising new treatments are available. Among the currently available successful treatment options is Oral Immunotherapy (OIT), it is proven to result in desensitization and tolerance.
We Celebrate Your Success
