From 9-15 April 2014 NHS Choices and talkhealth teamed up with Allergy Academy, Action Against Allergy, Allergy UK and MedicAlert to present an online clinic on food allergies.


Alongside this, we ran a survey on food allergies. Most people who answered this survey- themselves, their partner or child had a food allergy. The most common age to having a food allergy was between 21 and 60 years.

The order of allergy presented starting with the most popular was:

  • dairy
  • wheat
  • nuts
  • gluten
  • eggs
  • fish

This is the talkhealth blog spot, where we post on a wide range of health conditions, topics, issues and concerns. We post when we see something that we believe is of interest to our visitors. Our posts do not reflect any particular view or standpoint of talkhealth, but are merely to raise attention and awareness.
