Some interesting excerpts:
"Fleischer and his colleagues discovered, in a new landmark study, that more than half the foods triggering positive blood tests could, in fact, be added safely back to the diets of patients based on food challenges.
The study seems to indicate there may be thousands of Americans, perhaps more, who aren't eating food that they probably could eat safely.""Food challenges may be the emerging standard, but they can cost thousands of dollars; less accurate blood tests typically run about $300."
"[Food challenge testing] is a burden to do on a daily basis," Malka said. "It takes time, it takes staff, and there's always a risk associated with any food challenges ... because of an allergic reaction. But if it's done in the right setting, with the right testing behind it, it's a very safe test to do."
This isn't a new treatment - more of a revived one. Many people swear by it. Food for thought...
