Allergy Risk Calculator
The predisposition to allergies is, to a large extent, inherited. Babies whose parents or siblings suffer from allergies – such as hay fever, asthma, eczema or food allergy – have an increased risk of developing an allergy themselves.
The Allergy Checker asks key questions about the family history of allergy to get an idea of whether a baby is at low, medium or high risk of developing allergies; and it provides guidance on measures to reduce this risk.
This checker can be used with parents, but should not replace a full consultation with an appropriate healthcare professional in order to make an allergy diagnosis.
You can access the Allergy Checker through our SMA® Nutrition website for mums.
