A study on emotional and behavioural problems in adolescents with allergies

February 8, 2016


Mark Ferro and Ryan van Lieshout, core members of the Offord Centre for Child Studies, have recently published a study examining psychology in adolescents and young people with food allergies. The McMaster University-led study, which followed 1,300 participants at 14 and 21 years of age, found that teens with food allergies are more likely to have depression, anxiety and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The study, which was published in the medical journal Allergy, can be found here. For more on this study, check out articles on Allergic Living and McMaster University’s Daily News.
