Purpose of reviewThe accurate diagnosis of food allergy is crucial not only for the right treatment but also for the avoidance of unnecessary diets. The diagnostic work-up of suspected food allergy includes the measurement of food-specific IgE antibodies using serologic assays, the skin prick test, elimination diets and oral provocation tests. In addition, some approaches are either under further rigorous investigation (the atopy patch test) or are already in widespread use, particularly by… Expand
