What Are the Common Symptoms of Allergic Gastrointestinal Problems?
If you have a gastrointestinal disorder associated with a food allergy, you may experience an immediate or near-immediate reaction after eating a specific food too.
The most common symptoms are:
- Abdominal or stomach pain
- Bloody or black stools
- Chest pain
- Chronic vomiting
- Difficulty swallowing
- Immediate swelling of the throat
Although those symptoms can have other causes than an allergic gastrointestinal issue, getting tested can help rule out possible causes and identify what is going on.
At Cure Allergy clinic, our providers make sure to review your medical history, perform a thorough physical examination, and discuss your current symptoms, including their onset, frequency, and severity to get a preliminary detailed picture before recommending specific testing.
Our Comprehensive Testing Options for Allergic GI Disorders
Gastrointestinal issues due to allergies can cause a wide range of symptoms from mild discomfort to severe concerns. Our providers can use different testing methods to determine what you or your child is dealing with.
We offer food allergy testing to diagnose irritable bowel syndrome, also known as IBS, which covers several intestinal conditions that result in lasting inflammation of the digestive tract. Disorders that fall under the IBS category include ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
Your digestive tract has the following parts:
- Small and large intestines
The digestive tract handles breaking down food, extracting nutrients, and getting rid of the remaining waste. To diagnose IBS, we conduct a blood and a stool sample test. You may require additional medical imaging or testing depending on your situation.
Gut Bacteria Testing
Several issues can result from imbalances in your gut microbiome. To identify any concerns, we can perform gut bacteria testing. For this type of test, we require stool samples to check what bacteria and microbes you have in your gastrointestinal system.
The results can also show potential food sensitivities. Gut bacteria testing can indicate whether you may have an inflammatory condition such as IBS or celiac disease.
Eosinophilic Esophagitis Testing
Our team can also test for eosinophilic esophagitis or EoE, a chronic disease that affects your white blood cells, causing a buildup in your esophagus. Allergy tests can help us identify possible causes and food triggers with a blood sample or a food patch test.
Other methods such as endoscopy, food elimination diet, and testing to rule out other conditions may be necessary to establish an EoE diagnosis.
Other allergic gastrointestinal disorders that we can identify with food allergy testing include milk protein allergy that affects the colon, enterocolitis due to food proteins, and certain genetic conditions.

No matter your situation, our providers tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs and we can reevaluate as necessary to help you live comfortably. You can expect a build-up phase of your treatment before we can move into the maintenance one.
