Do you have bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or other digestive symptoms after eating certain foods? Many people assume they have a food allergy or are intolerant to the foods that cause these symptoms. However, this is often not the case.
These symptoms are usually not a result of the food itself, but rather a problem with the health and function of your gut. After treating your gut, the foods that were once a trigger might not cause you any problems.
Amy Brenner, MD & Associates has a team of experienced physicians, nurse practitioners, and wellness coaches that work together to create customized treatment plans for every patient. With specialized testing, a thorough understanding of gut function, and the right tools for treatment, we can help patients get their gut health back on track.
The cause of food sensitivities
We commonly trace food sensitivities back to a problem in the digestive system—a leaky gut. When your gut functions properly, it absorbs the nutrients you need and gets rid of the toxins and waste that you don’t need. However, if you have a leaky gut, toxins, digestive waste, and food particles can enter your bloodstream.
When these unwanted substances enter your bloodstream, it causes inflammation. This can lead to many unwanted symptoms throughout your body—bloating, diarrhea, constipation, pain, low energy, mood changes, brain fog, and more.
If the cause of your symptoms is a leaky gut, it’s important to treat your digestive system rather than avoid foods. Leaky gut testing in Cincinnati is the first step.
GI Map stool testing
GI Map testing gives us valuable information about the health of your digestive system. This is an easy and convenient test that you complete in the comfort of your own home. With these results, we can determine the health of your intestinal lining to find out if you have a leaky gut.
Food Sensitivity testing in Cincinnati
It’s important to find out if you have a true food allergy or a food sensitivity. With food sensitivity testing in Cincinnati, we use a blood test to determine how your body’s immune system reacts to certain foods. This will tell us the degree of your sensitivity.
Once we have a full picture of what is happening in your gut through stool testing, food sensitivity testing, and food allergy testing, we can create an effective treatment plan to improve the health of your gut and reintroduce the foods that once caused you symptoms.
