If an adverse food reaction is involved, most cases will respond to the new diet within 4-6 weeks, but occasionally cases may take up to 10 weeks to respond, particularly if the disease is very chronic. If there is a response, the diagnosis must be confirmed by reintroduction of the original diet or components of it. This is because in up to 20% of cases it has been shown that any clinical response may not be due to dietary change but is coincidental and these cases do not relapse upon dietary challenge. In a positive challenge, the patient usually relapses within 7-14 days, but occasionally it may take up to 3 weeks.
