About this Book

Specialist dietitians, Isabel Skypala and Carina Venter assemble a team of expert authors to separate fact from fiction and provide the reader with an authoritative and practical guide to handling the difficult issue of food hypersensitivity.

Offering advice for treating children and adults in one book and written in an accessible style, the book is split into three main sections:

  • Diagnosis
  • Dietary management
  • Allergy prevention and nutritional considerations

This exceptional volume is essential reading for all dietitans, nutritionists, paediatricians, allergists, family practitioners, GPs, practice nurses, health visitors and other health care professionals who work in this area or have an interest in food allergy. The book is also an excellent reference for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying allergy, immunology or nutrition and dietetics. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where nutrition, dietetics, food science, medicine and health sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this important work on their shelves
