Expo Hall Briefing: FPIES and EoE: Management Strategies and Nutritional Considerations through the Ages
Food allergies are a spectrum that encompasses immediate and delayed reaction with a plethora of symptoms that may mimic other diagnoses. Food allergies, while most common in pediatrics, also affect adults, and management strategies vary through the ages. The value of accurate diagnosis and patient dependent management strategies may be immeasurable for not only medical management but optimizing nutritional status and quality of life through the stages of life.
- Define the food allergic spectrum from non-IgE to IgE and blended diagnosis, specifically food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome and eosinophilic esophagitis.
- Explain pediatric and adult management strategies for each diagnosis
- Identify potential nutritional deficiencies based on age and therapeutic diet implementation.
