    Diagnosis of allergic diseases are based on detailed clinical history and careful physical examinations supported by skin test (ST) reactivity and/or presence of allergen specific IgE in the serum for IgE-mediated allergy. Clinicians tend to focus on clinical manifestations that occur in the organs affected directly by allergen exposure. However, many epidemiological studies support a positive association between neuropsychiatric symptoms and allergic diseases, although in most epidemiological studies, allergy diagnoses are based on self-reported survey results and/or billing codes. With current diagnostic tools heavily relying on clinical history, individuals with limited expressive language (LEL) imposes a significant challenge for practicing clinicians. LEL subjects also often exhibit neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with their primary medical conditions. In such subjects, it i.. Read More»
