What You Need to Know about Diagnostic Allergy Testing

Description: Clients often come to dietitians with a long list of foods to avoid based on non-validated testing. It is difficult to approach these cases, especially if the testing has been completed by a physician. A good strategy is to review a handout with the client. The dietitian is not giving her opinion on the testing, but is communicating information that was written by an expert.

Target Audience: Public, but would also help professionals understand the basics of food allergy testing.
