Host: Kathy King, RDN
It's estimated that 4 - 8% of the U.S. population has at least one food allergy, and the incidence rate appears to be growing. How do we explain this harmful trend in public health, and what can clinicians and patients do to help mitigate the risk of developing food allergies? Host Kathy King is joined by Debra Indorato, nutrition advisor for Kids With Allergies, which is a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. The two discuss the latest understandings and dietetic approaches to food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances.
