Food Allergy Testing & Treatment

If you suspect that you have a food allergy, it is important to not self-diagnose and take it lightly. Simply avoiding the suspected food without proper diagnosis and guidance from a qualified professional can potentially lead to more serious problems, such as malnutrition.

Therefore, seeking advice from a qualified professional should be the first step in addressing your concerns about a possible food allergy. At Evolution, we can help you.

Food Allergy Testing

Testing for food allergies is an important step in identifying potential triggers and managing symptoms. It is recommended to keep a record of any symptoms experienced and the corresponding foods consumed to help identify patterns.

Common symptoms of food allergies include red skin, hives, itchiness, swollen lips or eyelids, tight throat, wheezing or difficulty breathing, coughing, vomiting, and diarrhea. However, it’s important to note that these symptoms can vary from person to person.

Diagnosing a food allergy typically involves a combination of methods:

  • Family Medical History: Your doctor may analyze your family’s medical history to identify any patterns of food allergies in order to better understand your risk.
  • Medical Examination: A physical examination will be conducted to rule out other potential causes of your symptoms.
  • Elimination Diet: Your doctor may suggest implementing an elimination diet, where you remove suspected food triggers from your diet for a period of time and then reintroduce them to observe any symptoms that reoccur.
  • Skin Prick Test: This involves injecting a small amount of the suspected food allergen under the skin to observe any allergic reactions, such as redness or swelling.
  • Blood Test: A blood sample may be taken to check for the presence of specific allergy-related antibodies called Immunoglobulin E (IgE).
  • Food Challenge: Under monitored conditions, you may be asked to consume a small amount of the suspected food to observe any adverse effects.

It’s important to work closely with your doctor to determine the most appropriate testing methods for your specific situation. This will help provide a clearer understanding of your food allergies and guide treatment and management strategies moving forward.

The primary approach to managing food allergies involves strict avoidance of any food that has been confirmed to cause an allergic reaction. This means carefully reading food labels, asking about ingredients when dining out, and being aware of potential cross-contamination risks. It’s important to have a comprehensive understanding of the foods to avoid and make necessary lifestyle adjustments to ensure safety.

However, despite taking precautions, accidents can happen. In case of accidental exposure to an allergenic food, there are a few steps you can take:

  • Over-the-Counter Remedies: Over-the-counter antihistamines may help alleviate mild allergic symptoms, such as itching or hives. Non-prescription epinephrine auto-injectors, like EpiPen, may be available for individuals who have been prescribed them by their healthcare provider.
  • Emergency Medical Attention: In severe allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis, immediate medical attention is crucial. This may include calling emergency services or going to the nearest emergency room. Anaphylactic reactions can cause difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat, a drop in blood pressure, and other life-threatening symptoms.

It’s important to have an emergency action plan in place, especially for individuals with severe food allergies, and to inform family, friends, and coworkers about your food allergies, symptoms, and necessary actions to take in case of an emergency.

Remember, managing food allergies involves not only strict avoidance but also being prepared for potential accidental exposures. Working closely with your healthcare provider and allergist can help you develop a personalized management plan and ensure you have the necessary tools and knowledge to handle allergic reactions safely.

    Erin and the entire staff in Evolution are amazing people. I decided to contact them because I was at the end of my rope trying to figure out how to fix my health. Nothing I did was working. I honestly had reservations about this program too. I was so wrong! The diet, supplements, and meds they gave me absolutely were worth it all. They were able to figure out what was wrong and gave me everything I needed to help my body "reset." The program and instructions were easy to follow, I always got responses when I had questions, and they made it so easy to get refills for whatever I needed. My health is improving drastically and my weight is coming off like it's supposed to. I'm so much happier now and I highly recommend this place to anyone who's regular doctor just seems to be treating symptoms and not the problem.

    I cannot thank God enough for helping me find Erin and her staff at Evolution Weight Loss and Hormones when I needed them the most. I have been through a long journey of medical conditions and unexplainable symptoms for more than twenty years. I have seen many doctors, and none of these doctors have been able to help me with my symptoms or giving me a specific diagnosis. The worst and most terrifying part of this ongoing journey was to see how my doctors continued to prescribe medications that could cause severe side effects without having a proper diagnosis. I came to Erin with a long list of unexplainable and chronic issues starting with my stomach, joints, skin, inflammation, arthritis, pcos, insomnia, hair loss, I could not drink water because it will upset my stomach so bad, and the list goes on and on. I was exhausted and felt helpless. However, I continued to pray for answers. Since my conditions have been going on for many years and have become chronic, it took Erin long hours to analyze my symptoms, review all my test results, order new lab work and review my medical records in order to give me some answers and point me in the right direction to heal. I can now say, my overall health has improved tremendously. The process has taken time and requires patience, hard work, commitment, and communication. I can now drink water and my stomach can tolerate it!! I thank God for listening to my prayers, and Erin for not giving up on me. Erin’s dedication, passion and willingness to help so many people in need of answers to their rare and chronic medical symptoms is truly admirable and next level. She will always do right by you, she is understanding, receptive, fair and will treat you like you are part of her own family. Her staff is so nice, supportive and always available to help in every way they can. I cannot thank Erin and her staff enough for helping me improve my health and quality of life, for helping me find some long awaited answers, and for pointing me in the right direction to continue to heal. Please if you are suffering from unexplainable symptoms and have been diagnosed with multiple medical conditions without getting the root cause of the symptoms, you must give Erin and her wonderful staff a try, you will not be disappointed!!

    Erin and her team, especially Kaley, are absolutely wonderful. They are professional and take all questions, concerns and calls, seriously. They strive to give the client the best possible experience, which is why I continue to see them for my particular need. Communication is the key and Erin takes pride in providing excellent communication between her clients and vendors. I HIGHLY recommend giving Evolution a try for yourself to experience one of the few places that offer quality and care, concerning the client’s experience and overall ease with dealing in healthcare.

    We are eternally grateful for the transformative experience we had at Evolution. Seeking medical care for Wilson's decease, we were on the verge of losing hope until we found Erin and Evolution. From the start, their compassion, expertise, and dedication to healing shone through. Erin took the time to listen (and still does it every time), conducted a thorough examination, and created a personalized treatment plan. Their holistic approach combined evidence-based treatments, personalized nutrition plans, and cutting-edge therapies. The care I received not only effectively managed Wilson's decease but also sparked significant improvements in my well-being, giving our whole family a renewed sense of hope and joy. We wholeheartedly recommend Erin and Evolution for life-changing medical care.
