The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 4% of adults and 4-6% of children have food allergies. It is possible to develop food intolerances or allergies to foods you have eaten your entire life. You can schedule a test with us if you think you may have a food allergy. Please check out the medications you need to stop taking in the patient section before getting a skin test.
Here, patients choose from a spectrum of services based on their needs— including needs related to seasonal allergies, food allergies, asthma, eczema, immune diseases, and much more.
80% of food allergies are caused by the following common food allergens: milk, egg, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, and tree nuts. The prevalence of sesame allergies has increased as well.
Hives, itching, trouble breathing, wheezing, coughing, diarrhea, vomiting, drop in blood pressure, weak pulse, and shock leading to anaphylaxis are just a few of the symptoms of a food response.
Be aware that these signs might appear anywhere from a few minutes to 4 hours after consumption.
With the use of food challenges and testing, our clinic will assist you in identifying food allergies, intolerances, and eliminating suspect triggers so that you can broaden your patient’s diet as much as possible when it is safe to do so.
Once food allergies have been established, we can assist in determining when the patient may have outgrown the allergy and the likelihood of a food challenge. Does your kid suffer from eczema? Read up on the LEAP (Learing Early About Peanuts) study and the most recent suggestions for the early introduction of peanuts to prevent peanut allergies.
Avoiding the foods that result in symptoms and signs of an allergic reaction is the only method to prevent one. You can still come into contact with a food that triggers a reaction despite your best attempts.
Antihistamines, whether prescribed or over-the-counter, may help ease symptoms of a small allergic reaction. These medications can be given to aid with itchiness or hives after exposure to a food that causes an allergy. Antihistamines, however, cannot manage a severe allergic reaction.
You could require an epinephrine emergency injection and a trip to the emergency hospital for a severe allergic response. Many allergy sufferers travel with an epinephrine autoinjector (Adrenaclick, EpiPen). When rubbed against your thigh, this device, which combines a syringe and a hidden needle, administers a single dose of medication.
If an epinephrine autoinjector has been recommended by your doctor:
Make sure you are familiar with using the autoinjector. Also, make sure others closest to you are aware of how to use the medication; should an anaphylactic emergency arise, they may be the ones to save your life.
Keep it close to you at all times. An extra autoinjector can be a smart idea to keep in your car or at your desk at work.
Epinephrine should always be replaced before it expires to ensure proper function.
We can surely assist if you are worried about your child acquiring peanut allergies or introducing peanuts to them.
