Maybe you have heard this myth: “But wait! FPIES is a condition that only affects infants and children!”
In fact, FPIES CAN present in adults, of any age, though the current research suggests it occurs in adults less frequently than in children. There is certainly crossover in the usefulness of FPIES resources for all ages; that said, this diagnosis demands age-appropriate resources for adults as well. Consider this page as a landing site for beginning your journey to a more thorough understanding of FPIES and how it may impact your day to day life.
Be sure to click on the buttons for, “Daily Life with FPIES,” and “Medical and Emergency Care,” to access adult-specific resources.
Though you will find great information in our general FPIES medical journal listing, here are some articles specific to FPIES and adults that you and your practitioner may find helpful.
