Food Allergies Common among Children and Linked to Environmental Allergies and Asthma Later in Life, Suggests Largest-Ever National Allergy Study
Date:5/17/2011

stem when an allergen is present. Each test result identified sensitization to one or more of 11 common allergens: five foods (egg white, milk, peanut, soybean, and wheat), common ragweed, mold, two types of house dust mites, and cats and dogs. While high IgE sensitization level is suggestive of an allergy, clinical diagnosis also requires medical examination and other considerations, and therefore the study did not definitively conclude patients with high sensitization were allergic to a tested allergen. A patient visit refers to any instance where an individual patient was tested at least once for one or more of the 11 allergens by Quest Diagnostics over the four-year period examined for the study.

The full Allergies Across America report to be released this month will assess the health impact of the 11 allergens on patients nationally and regionally as well as on the 30 most populous cities in the United States.
