One of the best ways to stay informed is to read. From new advances in research and medical studies to current safety information, and more, there’s always something going on in the allergy community.
There are a number of great resources to stay informed (aside from this blog of course). Here are my top sources:
Allergic Living Magazine Allergic Living Magazine is one of (if not the) best allergy publication. It’s a source for current information on allergy safe products, new recipes, stories and from people who have allergies. The information is well written and carefully explained so that all medical jargon is actually easy to understand.
Food Allergy Canada
Food Allergy Canada educates, supports and advocates for the needs of people living with food allergies and the risk of anaphylaxis.
I like this site for its quick fact information. You can select a food on their homepage (peanuts, nuts, eggs, wheat, etc.) and it provides a variety of information from common sources of the allergen, other names it could be listed as on an ingredients list, and tips to avoid a reaction.
Kids with Food Allergies is a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). It’s a great resource for parents with young children who have an allergy(s).
They have a whole section on the website dedicated to information on being recently diagnosed. It’s full of facts, common questions & answers, quick how-to guides on what to do during an attack, and more.
These websites also offer newsletter sign-ups and subscriptions so you can receive information straight to your email. It’s a great feature for parents to stay up to date since the information will come straight to you, saving you from having to go and search for it.
