Check for Food Allergies in Pediatric Migraines

Migraine is a condition that has connections to food and drink.
In one large-scale double blind trial of an elimination diet involving 88 pediatric migraine sufferers, 93% with severe frequent migraine responded and were headache-free (Egger, et al, Lancet, Oct. 1983).

An elimination diet is the gold-standard approach to elucidating which foods, if any, impact one’s health. The most common food allergens are: dairy, egg, wheat, soy, corn, citrus, peanuts, tree nuts, and shellfish.
