If you have a child with a food allergy, you've likely heard of IgE-mediated food allergies. But there's another type of food allergy that is less well-known - FPIES. Although FPIES is not an IgE-mediated food allergy, it can still be a severe and potentially life-threatening condition.

On this episode of the podcast, Dr. Hoyt interviews THE WORLD RENOWN EXPERT on FPIES: Dr. Anna Nowak-Wegrzyn. Drs. Nowak-Wegrzyn and Hoyt described the symptoms of FPIES, best practices for management, and some very good news about this disorder.

Don't miss this informative, enjoyable discussion!
