Food allergy is increasing rapidly with cow’s milk allergy being the most common form of food allergy. The World Health Organisation has now identified food allergy as a pandemic in the developed world. The future looks grim due to its limited diagnostic tests, especially in regards to non-IgE food allergy where misdiagnosis is common.

This study day brings together colleagues and experts in the world of food allergy, presenting about what the future holds for us, what interventions can we do and the latest treatment options available. Guest lectures include Dr Adam Fox and Professor Gideon Lack from Europe's largest allergy service at St Thomas’ Hospital in London.

Following this year’s success with the study day on Nutritional Management of Gastrointestinal Conditions, the Paediatric Gastro Academy is happy to announce that we will be hosting this study day again in March 2015. As before, we have combined lectures for presentation of clinical evidence with workshops to consider the practical aspects.  Areas in which nutritional management is particularly challenging have been considered such as; functional gastrointestinal disorders and colic. We will also discuss the evidence behind specialist feeds for gastrointestinal disorders and this will be followed with workshops on elimination diets and also vitamin and mineral supplementation. Due to the growing interest in the gut-brain-axis we have this year invited an oversees speaker for our state of the art lecture to introduce this topic and demonstrate the impact of specific nutrients on this. We are looking forward to welcoming any healthcare professional dealing with or interested in nutrition in gastrointestinal disorders.

RCPCH has approved this activity for up to 6 CPD credits, in accordance with the current RCPCH CPD Guidelines.
