Digestive Problems and Food Allergies

Don't Let the Wrong Foods Keep You from Good Health

Digestive Issues:​

Our digestive system is responsible for breaking down food so that other parts of our body can receive the necessary nutrients. Digestive issues can result in missing vital nutrients, which can cause the rest of our body to become dysfunctional.  Digestive problems are very common, and can take many forms - these problems include GERD, gallstones, Celiac disease, Chron's disease, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.

 

All these problems are a result of your body having an adverse reaction to certain foods, and can cause symptoms such as acid reflux, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, and ulcers. A Registered Dietitian will work with you to identify which foods may be causing issues, as well as which foods will be beneficial to your digestive system. There is no one size fits all approach with nutrition, especially when dealing with digestive issues. Make sure you contact your Gastrointestinal Doctor and follow-up with a dietitian if you experience any of the symptoms mentioned.

Common Causes of Digestive Disorder Symptoms

Food Allergies

A food allergy occurs when your body treats an ingested food as an invader, and tries to defend itself. Although allergies can be similar to digestive problems, the symptoms from allergies may differ. Symptoms from food allergies can show up as tingling feelings, hives, abdominal pain, or even trouble breathing. If you ever feel any of these symptoms after ingesting a food, it's important to get in contact with your doctor, and follow-up with an Allergist and a Registered Dietitian.

Because not all food allergies can be identified on a blood test, working with a Registered Dietitian becomes very important in identifying potential problem foods. Through a series of discussion, dietary history, and diet monitoring, a Registered Dietitian can help you pinpoint the food or foods causing the allergies.
