Clinically reviewed by Allergy UK’s Dietetic Advisor Lydia Collins-Hussey, Lydia explains why the book is such a valuable resource for families navigating a food allergy diagnosis ‘This book will certainly help those in the allergic community that are feeling lost and seeking reassurance from someone who has gone from diagnosis right through to resolution.’
‘Thrive Allergy Free’ reflects on all aspects of Uche’s daughters’ care with a cow’s milk allergy, egg allergy and eczema, looking at the winding path to a diagnosis, how she reintroduced foods and the importance of getting timely advice from specialists in the field.
Dr Uche Okorji-Obike is a scientist who spent her PhD years studying inflammation, the underlying mechanisms that drive allergies. Uche has applied her research skills to gather and weave in the most salient and up-to-date scientific information into easy to digest writing to support not only children with food allergies but also parental anxiety and the importance of self-care.
Along the way of this journey with allergies, Uche founded Tot2Teens Allergies, an allergy communication service and consultancy that provides professional information and recommends services for parents and carers of children with allergies.
