Is the better part of valor truly discretion?
The authors argue that the current model for managing peanut allergy is broken, and this fracture is hallmarked by the rapid increase in poor quality of life and poor empowerment of patients. The risk of fatality is often overblown in the face of data that suggest food allergy fatality is exceedingly low. However, the horizon is bright for future therapies and additional risk modeling, which can better arm decision making and means to inform patients about how to personalize management of their food allergy going forward.
