Onyimba F, Crowe SE, Johnson S, Leung J. Food Allergies and Intolerances: A Clinical Approach to the Diagnosis and Management of Adverse Reactions to Food. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2021;19(11):2230-2240.e1. doi:10.1016/j.cgh.2021.01.025

Food allergy is an aberrant immunological response to food antigen, which can result in potentially life-threatening reactions. It is often challenging to differentiate food allergy from other adverse reactions to food because their presentations can be indistinguishable. The purpose of this article is to give an overview of the classification, evaluation, and management of adverse food reactions, key differentiating features of food allergy, roles and limitations of various food allergy testing, and promising areas of emerging research. Case studies are used to highlight some of the clinical pearls in diagnosing and managing food-related diseases.
