      What are Food Allergies?

      You've felt it before. The sudden tingle in the back of your throat that brings on instant panic. Not all food allergies bring on the same symptoms, but no matter what your typical reaction is, you know it's never a good feeling.

      So, what are food allergies? A food allergy is an immune system response to something you have eaten. The body overproduces immunoglobulin E antibodies (IgE) in response to specific proteins in some foods.

      What is the difference between a food allergy and food intolerance? There is quite a difference, actually. A true food allergy will cause more severe reactions, sometimes immediately after consuming a particular food where a food intolerance is typically not an immediate reaction or life-threatening.

      Symptoms of Food Allergies:

      • Wheezing
      • Swelling of the face or throat
      • Abdominal cramps
      • Diarrhea
      • Hives
      • Flushed skin or a rash such as eczema
      • Tingling or itching sensation in the mouth
      • Loss of consciousness
      • Anaphylactic shock

      How we Diagnose a Food Allergy?

      In some instances, you may know right away what food is causing your reaction. But for those cases where you are unsure which ingredient is to blame, seeing an allergy expert is vital.

      Our food allergy practitioners have years of experience helping patients get to the bottom of their food allergies, so they may feel a sense of relief having the answers they may need to move forward in life.

      Our practitioners take the time to deeply understand your complete medical history, family history and will conduct a thorough exam. This information may help us pinpoint the culprit for your allergies.

      We also have various diagnostic options available to determine the underlying issue further. This may include a skin prick test or blood test, as well as having you try an elimination diet to rule out any food intolerances.

      We will work with you to determine which diagnostic option is the right choice for you.

      Treatment for Food Allergies

      When dealing with a food allergy, the number one treatment is to avoid the food causing the allergy, but sometimes this is easier said than done.

      As with any condition, it's essential to understand the root cause before we simply offer any treatment. Once the diagnostics have been completed, we will come up with a specific action plan that pertains to your individual needs.

      Our team will work with you to help navigate this health journey and ensure you are still receiving adequate nutrition by supplementing the foods you are missing. We work with you the whole way and monitor if your body has built up a tolerance to the food so that you may be able to eat it again.
