Why We Need to Stop Referring to IgE-Mediated Allergies as 'True' Food Allergies

This is an open letter to all healthcare professionals from a food allergy mama and Registered Dietitian. I am writing to you as a mother to children with both IgE mediated and non-IgE mediated food allergies.

As many of you are aware, allergic reactions commonly seen in the media are IgE reactions — those that could turn into fatal anaphylaxis.

The less commonly talked about food allergies are non-IgE reactions, such as food protein-induced enterocolitis (FPIES) or a non-IgE cow’s milk protein allergy.
