Currently, there are no medications that cure food allergies. Strict avoidance is the only way to prevent a reaction. Most people outgrow their food allergies, although peanuts, nuts, fish, and shellfish are often considered lifelong allergies. Some research is being done in this area and it looks promising.

Each year 84,000 cases of anaphylaxis occur in the U.S., with approximately 1 percent of these cases resulting in a fatality.  The market is segmented into four different types of allergies that could result in an attack.  These allergies are food, insect venom, latex and penicillin.

In addition, there are a total of 50 million people in the U.S who are at risk of an attack from one or more of these allergy types.  Individuals with food and insect venom allergies are at the highest risk for an attack due to the likelihood of accidental exposure.  Generally, once latex and penicillin allergies are diagnosed, exposure to allergens and subsequent attacks are avoidable.  Medi-Life Cards LLC will focus on targeting individuals with food and/or insect allergies.
