A recent JAMA Network Openarticle grabbed headlines for suggesting that half of adults who think they have a food allergy probably don't. But lead author Ruchi Gupta, MD, MPH, says the study has another important message.
Studies suggest some children outgrow allergies to certain foods. But far less is known about how often and why some people grow into food allergies in adulthood, said Gupta, a pediatrician who directs the Science & Outcomes of Allergy & Asthma Research (SOAAR) Program based at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
