Food Allergy

Adverse reactions to food can have a wide spectrum of symptoms among patients.  Therefore, a thorough history is imperative to determining what type of testing and treatment options are appropriate.


Skin prick testing or ImmunoCAP (blood test) can be used to determine the presence of a food allergen.

Oral food challenges are a type of procedure that involves gradually introducing portions of food to a patient who has not previously tolerated the food, but diagnostic evaluations suggest that it may be safe to re-introduce in the diet.
