This module will cover both food hypersensitivities and intolerances and will develop the skills to discriminate the physiological differences between them.
It will promote knowledge and practical skills in the dietary and nutritional management of hypersensitivity and intolerance reactions to foods and investigate potential new strategies indicated by research programmes for their treatment and possible prevention.
This course aims to illustrate the complexity of the epidemiology, diagnosis and management of food hypersensitivity reactions and demonstrate the practical diagnosis and management of food hypersensitivity.
