It is reassuring to know from the outset, that FPIES whilst being a potentially severe condition is outgrown by most children by age 5. It is unfortunate that most GP's and many consultants in the UK are not familiar with FPIES. For that reason FPIES UK was set up to help educate parents and increase awareness within the medical community.
Note: If you are a teenager or adult who vomits profusely and becomes dizzy and lethargic after eating seafood, you too could have FPIES. Unfortunately the condition may be lifelong for those adults who are affected but unlike IgE mediated shellfish and fish allergy there have been no reported FPIES fatalities.
