If any of these anaphylaxis symptoms occur, call 911 immediately.

Food Intolerance

Persons might develop intolerance to specific foods without a true allergy present. It is important to diagnose and manage these conditions properly.

Diagnosis and Treatment

It is important to determine if your symptoms are due to a food allergy or food intolerance. Our providers can make a diagnosis through an allergy skin test, blood test, or oral food challenge. After an accurate diagnosis, we will work with you to determine the best treatment plan. A Food Allergy Action Plan will be provided which may include a prescription for auto Injectable epinephrine.

There are new and emerging treatments for food allergies that may enable early introduction of certain foods particularly in children. An oral food challenge to a food can also be performed if appropriate.
