Recommendations for the allergy management in the primary care


Jutel, M; Papadopoulos, N G; Gronlund, H; Hoffman, H-J; Bohle, B; Hellings, P; Braunstahl, G-J; Braunsthal, G-J; Muraro, A; Schmid-Grendelmeier, P; Zuberbier, T; Agache, I (2014). Recommendations for the allergy management in the primary care. Allergy, 69(6):708-718.

Abstract

The majority of patients seeking medical advice for allergic diseases are first seen in a primary care setting. Correct diagnosis with identification of all offending allergens is an absolute prerequisite for appropriate management of allergic disease by the general practitioner. Allergy diagnostic tests recommended for use in primary care are critically reviewed in accordance with the significant workload in a primary care setting. Simplified pathways for recognition and diagnosis of allergic diseases are proposed, that should be further adapted to local (national) conditions.
