Abstract

The interpretation of epidemiological data on food hypersensitivities should clearly separate two issues: the disposition to respond symptomatically to certain foods and the actual reactions occurring, which can be observed only when there is sufficient consumption or targeted exposure/provocation.The exact specification of the case definition is essential for reporting and interpreting food hypersensitivity frequencies. In Europe, prevalence estimates of self-reported reactions are reported from 5.7 to 61.6 %, and physician-diagnosed hypersensitivities from 0.2 to 4.2 %. Consideration of only double-blind proven immediate-type reactions gave estimates ranging from 0.0 to 2.2 %. The disposition for severe reactions against food might be less frequent, but cannot be estimated robustly from published data. The only data available for Germany estimates a prevalence of IgE-mediated reactions of 2,5% for Berlin.The most common triggers of early childhood food allergy are cow's milk and hen's egg, which usually cause mild symptoms, limited to the skin. Food allergy aquired in infancy usually disappears by early school age.The European Anaphylaxis Registry documents the spectrum of severe allergic reactions. England has a larger case series for fatal reactions. No incidence can be estimated from either approach, because reporting is voluntary. Additionally, the discussed data does not inform about the clinical relevance of severe allergic reactions against foods.Future systematic studies about the incidence and course of food hypersensitivity should examine sufficiently large groups of people using objective diagnostic criteria.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 July 2017.
All research outputs
#1,697,367
of 11,511,689 outputs
Outputs from Bundesgesundheitsblatt - Gesundheitsforschung - Gesundheitsschutz
#44
of 358 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#58,560
of 262,617 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Bundesgesundheitsblatt - Gesundheitsforschung - Gesundheitsschutz
#3
of 13 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,511,689 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 84th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 358 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 262,617 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 13 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
