Clinics are held every three months and led by Dr. Amy Blair, a Toronto-based Pediatrician who specializes in allergy and clinical immunology.
Please make sure your child does not take their prescribed allergy medications for 72 hours prior to their appointment.
Skin prick testing is frequently used in diagnosis. Positive results indicate the possibility that the patient may have a clinical reaction to that particular food.
Blood testing can also be used to determine the likelihood of a child reacting during an oral food challenge.
Based on the results of skin prick testing and blood work, an oral food challenge is then the gold standard to diagnose or rule out a food allergy.
