Food allergies are on the rise. In the last ten to fifteen years, there has been approximately a five-fold increase in adverse reactions to foods such as nuts, fish, cereals, milk, eggs and-increasingly-raw fruits and vegetables. Estimates suggest up to 3 per cent of adults and up to 6 per cent of children now have food allergies. "Living with Food Allergies" aims to support people with food allergies and parents of children with food allergies, equipping them to cope with everything from the day-to-day practicalities of dealing with the condition, to the longer-term implications of allergic illness triggered by food. Topics covered include: What food allergies are and why they occur; Reaction management and medication; Food safety, diet and nutrition; Practical issues-home life, employment, education and travel; Coping emotionally and psychologically; Allergy prevention and long-term health; Food allergies in infants and children; Tests, diagnoses and treatments; and, Non-allergic food intolerances and coeliac disease. There is also a comprehensive resources section, filled with useful websites, support organisations, producers, allergy bodies, and much more. Food allergy can cause great misery, but the good news is that informed and careful self-management can keep you or your child in optimal mental and physical shape.
