Hi Heddi, thanks for posting the link to the expert panel report. That is the report published in the clinical literature (Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology), which is the primary resource on this topic written for the clinician. The link we posted above is the NIH publication that is based on the Expert Panel Report and is written in plain language for patients, families and caregivers.  Both are accurate references for the NIH Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy.
