A new quality of life scale for teenagers with food hypersensitivity

Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, 05/18/2012

The You and Your Food Allergy scale is the first health–related quality of life (HRQL) scale to have been developed and validated with UK teenagers with food hypersensitivity (FHS). Subject to further evaluation of its psychometric properties, its development has important applications in future research into the HRQL of teenagers with FHS. Short and easy–to–complete, the scale has been designed to appeal to teenagers and is likely to be useful to facilitate discussion of HRQL issues.
