Food Allergies Could Be Keeping You From Your Goals

You may have heard of a variety of fad diets that have become extremely popular recently. From ketogenic diets, to paleo diets, to whole30, there always seems to be a new “right” way to eat. It is hard to know what will actually benefit your health. If you have considered trying one of these diets because you are suffering from sickness that seems to be food related, or wondering if you may be suffering from allergies that are hurting your healthy new year, there is a better way. Instead of struggling with diets that limit what you can eat, schedule an allergy test with our Houston medical clinic.

FOOD ALLERGIES CAN DISRUPT YOUR OVERALL HEALTH

If you have a food allergy that you don’t know about, it could be seriously affecting your health. You may be feeling sick all the time, you may be lethargic, or you may feel extremely bloated or uncomfortable after eating. Sometimes, it is easy to determine the cause of this discomfort. More often than not, however, this can be very difficult. Especially in cases where patients suffer from multiple food allergies, self-diagnosis can be difficult and even harmful to your health. The best way to understand your symptoms is to schedule an appointment with our doctors. At your appointment, an allergy test, typically a blood test, will determine what foods you are allergic to. From here, we can work with you to design a treatment plan, which will include tips for eliminating your allergen from your diets without missing out on essential nutrients. For many allergens, such as eggs, gluten, and dairy, it can be difficult at first to learn what foods contain these ingredients. Our team is here to help you navigate your allergy, and get to feeling better.
