A large body of medical literature has indicated that hidden food allergy is a frequent cause of a wide range of physical and mental conditions. Hidden allergies can be "unmasked" by means of an elimination diet, followed by individual food challenges. Although the concept of hidden food allergy remains controversial, the evidence strongly suggests that identification and avoidance of allergenic foods can relieve a number of common and difficult-to-treat medical problems.

Bronchial asthma due to food allergy alone in ninety-five patients.
TLDR
Strict adherence to the diet was necessary at first, especially in the winter, but in many cases it was found that tolerance to some foods developed in one to four years and that a more liberal diet could be allowed in the future.
Role of food allergy in serous otitis media.
TLDR
The possibility of food allergy should be considered in all pediatric patients with recurrent serous otitis media and a diligent search for the putative food allergen made for proper diagnostic and therapeutic intervention.
Children with allergic rhinitis and/or bronchial asthma treated with elimination diet.
: 169 of 188 (90%) of infants with allergic rhinitis and/or bronchial asthma improved on a hypo-allergenic diet. Most "outgrew" their food allergy but many later developed inhalant allergy.
Ulcerative colitis — an allergic phenomenon
TLDR
Treatment based on allergic considerations has produced results which are better than those based entirely on an infective etiology and can be used to demonstrate the effect of allergenic foods and the improvement on their withdrawal from the diet.

Is adult idiopathic nephrotic syndrome food allergy? Value of oligoantigenic diets.
TLDR
It seems that an oligoantigenic diet is helpful in cases of INS that do not respond to corticosteroids and this argues for a role of food hypersensitivity in this disease and suggests that avoidance of specific foods on the longer term may be of benefit.
