Yes: A breath sample can be tested for the presence of hydrogen. To obtain the sample, you will be asked to blow up a balloon-type bag. Normally, very little hydrogen is detected in the breath. You will then be given a lactose solution to drink. Breath samples are collected every 15 minutes for 2 hours to detect any increase in hydrogen in the breath as the solution is digested.

No: The american academy of allergy asthma and immunology expert panel does not recommend restricting maternal diet during pregnancy or lactation as a strategy for preventing the development of food allergy. There is insufficient evidence that maternal diet during pregnancy or lactation affects the development or clinical course of food allergy.
