Significant reduction of quality of life in allergic kids and teens

A recent study has re-established that children and adolescents with food allergies have worse physical, social, emotional and overall health related quality of life (HRQL) as compared to their food-allergy free peers. The new systematic review conducted by Michael A. Golding, a research coordinator at Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, and his colleagues, revealed that the burden of childhood food allergy largely stems from worries surrounding exposures outside of the home and the social consequences of the condition. The findings of the study, published in Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, analysed the PubMed, Scopus, PsycInfo, and CINAHL databases.
