Food Allergies and Other Sensitivities in Children

with Jaclyn Bjelac, MD.

Description:

If your child has a food reaction for the first time, it can be a scary experience. A food allergy is caused when the body's immune system mistakes an ingredient in food—usually a protein—as harmful and creates a defense system (special compounds called antibodies) to fight it. An allergic reaction occurs when the antibodies are battling an "invading" food protein. Although a person could have an allergy to almost any food, most allergies are triggered by milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat.

Take this opportunity to ask pediatric allergist, Jaclyn Bjelac, MD, your questions on pediatric food allergies.
