Every patient’s food allergy or intolerance is unique to them in terms of triggers and severity. Our team is here to diagnose and study your food allergy to get to its cause.
When the cause of your food allergy is known, we can get to work looking for a solution that works best for you. The goal of our Newport Beach gastroenterologist is giving you the tools needed to confidently avoid trigger foods, or even build a tolerance to them overtime to reduce the severity of an allergic reaction.
One of the best approaches to food allergy and intolerance mitigation is a directed diet. Doctors Quist and Said may instruct you to remove certain foods from your diet for several weeks and record your digestive health during that same amount of time. This process of elimination can pinpoint which foods are causing an intolerant reaction in your digestive tract.
Our Newport Beach gastroenterological clinic can also suggest blood tests if it is suspected that your food allergy is related to celiac disease, lactose intolerance, or another autoimmune system complication. We may also suggest an endoscopy to view your digestive tract with a small, flexible camera to check for signs of some GI diseases.
