Dr. Oz talks food allergies


Dr. Oz has penned an article about food allergies in his syndicated column on health.

The article, Drs. Oz and Roizen: What you can do about food allergies, was co-authored by Dr. Mike Roizen, chief medical officer at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute and Sharecare.com.

The doctors discuss five ways that people can prevent and deal with food allergies:

  1. Keep up with the latest information about allergy-causing foods.
  2. Avoid setting off "allergy genes" by avoiding the suspected common causes of allergic reactions.
  3. Take children who have food reactions to an allergist.
  4. Get two EpiPens for each child – one for the child (or a helping adult) to use and one for the ER.
  5. Talk to a pediatrician about introducing allergenic foods intelligently.
