Help for food allergy sufferers – GF health link guide

June 30, 2009

People with life-threatening allergies are advised to carry an adreline (Epipen) injection, wear a medic alert bracelet and have an anaphylaxis action plan.

This is downloadable from the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy at www.allergy.org.au

Anaphylaxis Australia provides a lot of useful information on their website, from food recalls and alerts to tips on living with anaphylaxis.

The website also contains a kid’s corner with cartoon characters each suffering from a different food allergy.

Each character tells their story in a child-friendly way, and there are handy hints for parents as well. www.allergyfacts.org.au

www.everybody.co.nz has an excellent food allergy resource, including guides on how to shop for and store food.

It also has a useful guide for teachers who have a child with food allergies in their class.

It will help them understand what a food allergy is, what they should do if the child has a reaction and how they can keep the classroom a safe environment.

Shopping can be a problem for people with food allergies.

The website of the Royal Prince Albert Allergy Unit has a downloadable shopping list which has been developed specifically for children with nut, egg and milk allergies.

It lists many products that are nut, egg and milk-free. It should make shopping a lot easier! www.cs.nsw.gov.au/rpa/allergy

Useful Websites;
