Our bodies can be sensitive to our environment and impurities around us that can result in uncomfortable symptoms. However, our bodies are also sensitive to what we put in them, such as the food we eat. If you have noticed symptoms of drowsiness, fatigue, digestive concerns, or discomfort after eating certain meals, you may have a food allergy. Our gut is a source of energy that fuels many vital functions within the body, and consuming foods that you may have a sensitivity or allergy towards, can do more damage than you think. If you feel as though you may be experiencing symptoms of a food allergy, the professionals here at H-MD Medical Spa can help you identify sensitivities through food allergy testing.
What is Food Allergy Testing?
A food sensitivity or allergy causes the immune system to react by creating an inflammatory response. Food allergy testing is a specialized diagnostic tool that is designed to identify food allergen triggers within the body. It is not only an effective method for determining allergens, but it is also resourceful for determining how intense an allergy is.
A food sensitivity or allergy can cause uncomfortable symptoms including
- Mouth sores
- Headaches and migraines
- Stomach pain
By determining the triggers for food allergies, you can alleviate symptoms, as well as prevent the development of diseases and health conditions associated with the gut.
What to Expect
The process of food allergy testing is simple, quick, and safe. A member of our caring staff will complete the test by collecting a blood sample from the patient. The blood sample is then tested in a lab in order to determine abnormalities identified through the blood.
The final report categorizes nearly 100 variations of potential allergens that are categorized based on the risk and severity of your allergy. Categories include:
The results include graphs that illustrate the severity of each specific allergy. Allergens within the “moderate” or “avoid” categories may also be classified as “not safe.” If you have any questions regarding your final food allergy testing repost, a member of our staff would be more than happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have.
