Diagnosis and Treatment of Food Allergies

Food allergy is an abnormal response of our body’s immune system which is triggered by certain food components.

Food allergy is being recognized as increasing problem in our society with the incidence on the rise. It occurs when the body’s immune system is triggered by ingestion of a food substance and can vary from a mild allergic reaction to a severe, life-threatening response called anaphylaxis.

At the centre, we are able to evaluate and assess what component or components of food triggers this response and develop an appropriate management plan to minimize the risk of both exposure and treat symptoms when your child is accidentally exposed to the allergen.
