The study was conducted to understand the food allergy management behaviours and attitudes in their patients' households. In the survey, 100 English-speaking parents of children ages 6 months to 18 years took part. These parents had previously been diagnosed with food allergies and also came for follow-up visits at an urban allergy clinic.
According to the researchers, the parents were asked about potentially risky food allergy management behaviours. As per the findings of the study, almost half of parents of kids with food allergies reported at least one risky behaviour, such as not carrying epinephrine auto injectors or not reading food labels.
