Living with food allergies begins with a proper diagnosis. This is an important first step because some food allergies can be life-threatening and require different levels of care. Our pediatric allergists provide comprehensive care that includes accurate diagnosis, ongoing education, symptom management, and referrals to specialists. Our care continues until your child outgrows his or her food allergy, or transitions their care to an adult allergy specialist.
Education and Assistance
We help you and your child understand food allergies, including what to look out for and how to read food labels, prepare meals, and eat away from home.
A Team of Specialists
When necessary, we refer your child to a gastroenterologist or nutritionist to help manage their diet and reduce digestive symptoms.
We monitor your child’s allergies regularly. If your child appears to be outgrowing a food allergy, we can often work to safely incorporate the food back into the diet, using oral food challenges as necessary.
Testing Infants at High-Risk for Allergies
We test infants at high-risk for developing food allergies, such as those with eczema, and offer guidance to safely introduce foods during the first year of life.
If your child has other allergies, such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, or eczema, we provide seamless and simultaneous care in one convenient location. For your convenience, we offer allergy and immunology care at multiple locations throughout Durham and Raleigh.
