Food Allergy Testing

A food allergy is an immune system reaction in which the immune system mistakenly identifies a harmless food protein — an allergen — as a threat and attacks it. This can occur with even minimal exposure to the allergy-causing food, including eating, inhaling, or touching.

Symptoms can range from a tingling in the mouth to swelling to vomiting, depending on a person’s sensitivity to the particular food. While almost any food is able to cause an allergic reaction, only 8 foods are collectively responsible for approximately 90% of all food-allergic reactions in the United States:

  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Wheat
  • Soy
  • Fish
  • Shellfish

If you have a suspected food allergy, come into PrimaCare Medical Centers and get tested. You should never attempt to self-diagnose a food allergy, as this can often lead to unnecessary dietary restrictions and/or nutritional deficiencies, especially in children. At PrimaCare, our qualified healthcare providers will assess your suspected food allergy and guide a treatment plan to make a proper diagnosis. Our in-house testing labs mean you get your results faster, too. Schedule an appointment at your nearest PrimaCare branch to get tested for a food allergy today.
