Food Allergy Testing

Food allergies can be potentially life-threatening if not diagnosed and addressed accordingly. Even minor food allergies can have an effect on your health as well. At Longmont Spine & Physical Medicine, we offer food allergy testing to identify the foods you should avoid.

The most common symptoms associated with food allergies include:

  • swelling of the lips and face
  • tingling in the mouth
  • hives
  • itching
  • trouble breathing
  • abdominal pain
  • nausea or vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • dizziness

For those who are highly allergic to certain foods, the symptoms are much more dangerous. Known as anaphylaxis, this can cause life-threatening symptoms such as a drop in blood pressure, increased pulse, airway constriction and loss of consciousness.

In some cases, exercise can trigger food allergies. This means that eating before working out can cause food allergy symptoms. We can test for this condition and offer advice on how to avoid this problem.

Food allergies aren’t always readily apparent, but could become worse over time. To learn if you are allergic to certain foods, contact Longmont Spine & Physical Medicine today at 303-630-9842 to schedule a free consultation.
